So, well done to Celtic. They and Dinamo Zagreb put on a good display in Glasgow tonight. We'll be back on Friday night with coverage of Kilmarnock's game against Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership. All the best.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila

"We have a good chance now [of reaching his target of 10 points in Group D]. We are looking forward now to playing Astra. Craig Gordon is a very good goalkeeper. He is very calm. I am very happy. Europe is very exciting to play in."

Celtic manager Ronny Deila

"It was an important game. We wanted to get control of the group. When you see the second half they had the better chances but in the first half we had the better chances but it was even with the ball. In the second half we got tired. We couldn't keep up the pressure. I'm very pleased with the team spirit but we need better passing. Craig was unbelievable. He made vital saves."

We should hear from the Celtic manager Ronny Deila any moment.

BBC Scotland football pundit Murdo MacLeod

"They [Dinamo Zagreb] were great to watch - their energy, their touch, it was just their finishing. You felt they were a good side. It's a great three points and a great European victory."

BBC Scotland's Chick Young

"I loved the way Dinamo Zagreb, as soon as they got a goalkick, just started the play right away. I thought it was a great football match."

Andrew, Richhill: "Great win for Celtic tonight, 4 points from the first 2 games is a massive step towards qualification for the knockout stages."

BBC Scotland's Tom English

"Three absolutely critical points for Celtic. I can't believe there was only one goal in this match,. There must have been 12 or 13 really decent chances. Craig Gordon has got them four points with his saves in both matches [in Group D so far]. When you've got a brilliant goalkeeper, is it fair to say you were lucky? I think Celtic will say they got away with that one. There was a great atmosphere. It was a really good game and the result was in doubt until the end. Some Europa League games can be a bit flat but there was a real edge to this match."

Full time in the other Group D match: Astra Giurgiu 1-2 SV Red Bull Salzburg. That means the Austrians and Celtic both have four points, while Dinamo Zagreb remain on three, with Astra yet to get off the mark. It's a double -header against the Romanians next for Ronny Deila's side.


Celtic 1-0 Dinamo Zagreb

Clever play by Leigh Griffiths as Celtic break down the right and, rather than go for goal and risk losing possession, he wins a corner but slowing the play right do-o-own.

Bearded, pony-tailed Jo Inge Berget has replaced Celtic team-mate Aleksandar Tonev for these last few minutes.

We're into the first of three minutes of added time.

Former Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner

"Celtic have just got to get hold of the ball somehow. [Leigh] Griffiths has got to be thinking how he can take the ball up to the other end of the pitch."

Two minutes to go.


Jason Denayer brings down Henriquez on the edge of the box out on the left - and is booked - but Celtic goalie Craig Gordon plucks the resultant cross into the box from Marcelo Brozovic like a maiden aunt picking apples in her orchard.

El Arbi Hillel Soudani gets into an advanced position for the Croatians and hits a left-foot shot at goal but Craig Gordon smothers it. A minute later the Algerian spins 10 yards out but his shot is wayward. The Croatians will feel they deserve a point but they just cannot find a way past the home keeper.

Celtic midfielder Beram Kayal plays a one-two at the edge of the box and finds himself in on goal, but under pressure and unable to get a shot away.

Less than 15 minutes to go. I'm amazed this has stayed 1-0! Here comes Leigh Griffiths as a sub for Wakaso Mubarak. He could find space as Dinamo Zagreb push for a leveller. Mind you, they've been attacking for the whole match.


Leonardo Sigali goes into the referee's book for a sliding challenge on Anthony Stokes that was so late it attracted library fines.

BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

"Celtic replacing their attacking midfielder with the much more defensively-minded Beram Kayal tells you everything you need to know about how this match is going right now."

Sportsound commentator Liam McLeod informs listeners that Dinamo Zagreb played in the Champions League in two of the last three seasons but didn't win a group game.

Celtic's Anthony Stokes takes on Marcelo Brozovic and Josip Pivaric at Celtic Park.

Craig Gordon is at full stretch out to his right to turn away a drive by Marcelo Brozovic for a corner. Celtic were ripped apart there. Ronny Deila brings Beram Kayal on to replace Kris Commons.

Keeper Craig Gordon is very quickly off his line to gather a through ball down the inside left channel. He's had a good game.

Pinto heads the ball out to concede a corner for Dinamo, and striker Anthony Stokes hits it disappointingly low and wayward.

Aleksandar Tonev and Wakaso Mubarak have been very quiet for Celtic. Ronny Deila will want them to get involved far more to relieve pressure on the defence.

BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

"Celtic fans getting increasingly anxious as Dinamo dominate at the start of the second half. Not sure Craig Gordon and company can keep them at bay for another 30 minutes."

The Chilean Angelo Henriquez, on loan from Manchester United, comes on for Duj Cop. It's a gift for the headline writers if he scores.

The Croatians look the more dangerous side at the minute. Arijan Ademi heads over the bar as they crank up the pressure.

Eduardo has had three superb cracks at goal this evening - the most recent superbly saved by Craig Gordon after three Celtic defenders had gone out to the left back position to close down Soudani, who crossed for the unmarked Portuguese.

Scott Brown loses possession in midfield and Dinamo Zagreb attack in numbers and at pace. They work the ball from right to left but when a cutback would have created a better angle for a shot at goal, the ball is played straight to a Celtic defender.

I'm trying to figure out if that Dinamo Zagreb strip is black or a very dark blue. I think it's the latter. Very smart, in any case.

Celtic midfielder Kris Commons dinks a ball through Stefan Johansen who chests the ball forward and does to retain possession under pressure, but just as he enters the penalty box his moment of glory is thwarted by Leonardo Sigali.


Celtic begin the second half.

As things stand in Group D, Celtic and Red Bull Salzburg top the group on four points, while Dinamo Zagreb have three, with Astra Giurgiu still to break their duck. Ah, but we still have 45 minutes to go... And here come the teams for the second half.

BBC Scotland football pundit Murdo MacLeod

"I think it's a game where Celtic need a second goal just to be comfortable. But this Dinamo side want to get forward. Eduardo's strikes, the one that hit the crossbar and the volley, were terrific."

BBC Scotland's Tom English

"We're getting a lot of excitement here. It was a fantastic finish by Commons. I'm really surprised it's only 1-0. Celtic could have had two, Dinamo could have had three. Eduardo looks a real threat. He's firing in from all directions, this guy."


Celtic 1-0 Dinamo Zagreb

SV Red Bull Salzburg are now 2-1 ahead against Astra Giurgiu thanks to a goal from Jonathan Soriano.
