@spartico2: “We played well against a difficult stodgy opponent. Need a bit more flair in the team though. Frimpong excellent again.”

@chriswi67278064: “Brown solid. Some brilliant flashes from Eddy. Christie’s distribution poor, but did well to help force the goal. Frimpong MotM again. Away win in Europe and qualification. I’ll take that.”

@Eddy1967French: “Well done bhoys & well done Lenny, massive pressure to qualify tonight & job well done, big Barkas had the cigar out. Eddy delivers once again when needed most & big Duffy MOTM, absolutely imperious.”

@craigcowan72: “Glad to be in the group stages but this team is not enjoyable to watch. Will always take playing poor and winning than the opposite but have been watching Celtic for 30 years and this teams lacks creativity something not right. Mistake from the goalie takes us through!!”

@Woodybhoy67: “Decent tonight in fairness. Controlled from start to finish. Now get me a left sided Jeremy Frimpong. Absolute star that kid.”

@_Dleaves: “That will do! Another win away from home in Europe and another solid performance. Good to see French Eddy getting back on the scoresheet!”

@paulcropper: “Less said about that the better. Utter woeful yet again.”

@MarcusJordanR: “We won by a tap in off a deflection from a Christie shot, Rangers won comfortably and played as a team. We need to up are game asap!!”

@noofies82: “A wins a win, but god the football style is horrible to watch just now. It’s going to be a long season, but if we get through it I will be happy with the ugly football.”

@buff_egan: “Thank God for Eddy hopefully he kicks on now. But how Christie is playing ahead of Turnbull is beyond me. His passing is woeful.”

@PatrickMurphy89: “We'll need to vastly improve to make an impact in the group stages. Still delighted.”

@Ayeeye67: “Not the greatest game but qualifiers are mostly endured and not enjoyed. We've played better , created more and being dumped out before so I'll take this every time to get to the real stuff in the group stages of competitions. Roll on the Saints on sunday.”
