Well they rode their luck at times but Celtic come away from Kazakhstan with a very credible 1-1 draw, which sets them up nicely for the second leg at Celtic Park next Wednesday. Astana passed up plenty of chances and Brendan Rodgers knows they are more than capable of scoring at Parkhead next week, but the Celtic boss is pleased with what he called "an outstanding result" today. Celtic may well be able to call on new signing Kolo Toure for the second leg, though 20-year-old Eoghan O'Connell did not look out of place playing at the back in Kazakhstan.
