Between themselves Adam Virgo and Shay Given started a total of four Celtic matches but that didn’t prevent them from enjoying the hoops triumph over Rosenborg.

It was tight and tense in Norway but a stunning strike from James Forrest settled the tie to put Celtic into Friday’s play-off draw.

Given and Virgo are making their way in the media with the keeper on the look out for a new club while Virgo makes his way specialising in coverage of the EFL.

A year after taking over at the club the influence of Brendan Rodgers was all over the Celtic performance.

It was controlled and dominating as they held possession looking and pushing for an opening against opponents who looked barely interested in attacking.

The introduction of Leigh Griffiths proved the game changer with the Rosenborg defenders concerned by the impact of the Scotland striker.

The created the opening for Forrest, after appearing to struggle with his first touch he made no mistake with his second as the ball hit the net as Celtic moved closer to a Champions League jackpot.
