Celtic through to Champions League group stage after scare

Leigh Griffiths scores

Celtic completed an 8-4 aggregate win to reach the Champions League group stage despite a scare in Astana.

Leading 5-0 from the first leg, Brendan Rodgers’ side fell behind on the night when Dimitri Shomko’s shot was diverted into the net by Kristoffer Ajer.

And though Scott Sinclair produced a stylish equaliser, Serikzhan Muzhikov and Patrick Twumasi (2) put the hosts 4-1 up with 20 minutes still to play.
