It never runs to script but a Champions League night at Celtic Park is guaranteed drama.

The first 20 minutes were a bit edgy, the next ten saw the home side get on top before the goals started to flow.

By half time most supporters would have settled foe a 2-0 full time score but once Brendan Rodgers gets his side in front they go for the kill.

Astana had no answer to the power and pace that Celtic played at, as the bhoys got their teeth into the tie there was only going to be one winner.

Off the park the Green Brigade were on song and keeping in the right side of the regulations as the volume picked up inside Celtic Park.

A special chemistry sees the players feed off the fans and vice versa, for those looking on from the outside it seems like an entirely different sport to the sanitised English version.

Never before has a team ran up a 5-0 first leg win in the Play Off round allowing the fans to fully relax and lap up the fact that the return leg won’t be laced with the tension of last year’s trip to Israel.
