Despite losing 2-1 to Red Bull Salzburg, Celtic managed to progress to the knockout stages of the Europa League thanks to Rosenborg holding RB Leipzig to a 1-1 draw in the other group game of the night.

Ahead of the fixture, Brendan Rodgers’ men knew that even a draw at home would be enough for them to qualify but instead let the boisterous Celtic Park crowd down with a below par performance and were in danger of crashing out after having conceded two goals.

However, with full-time whistle just a few minutes away, the spectators- who had fallen quite silent by that point- found their voice back as news started floating of Tore Reginiussen’s shock equalizer in the dying moments of the game in Germany.

It was a dramatic end to another famous European night at Parkhead, where the Bhoys went home happy even after witnessing their team lose.

With the prospect of more European action to come at their fortress, perhaps the stunning picture of their iconic ground which has dropped online is a fitting tribute to Hoops’ luck and resilience that helped them progress through such a tricky group.

  1. Celtic had 9 points before their last game and Leipzig had 6 points. Leipzig could not win their last game. So therefore, Celtic went through to the next round and THEY DID NOT SCRAPE THROUGH.
