  1. Post update

    Well that's it from me tonight folks. Thanks for joining me on what was a thrilling night of Europa League action at Celtic Park.

    These two sides will do it all again next week in Milan and if that game is half as good as this one, then we're in for a real treat.

    Keep an eye on the BBC Scotland Sport website for further reaction to tonight's game.

  2. Post update

    CELTIC MANAGER RONNY DEILA

    "It was an unbelievable football match with an unbelievable atmosphere. I am so proud of the boys to come back from 2-0 down against an Italian team. We caused them problems and got a result in the end."

  3. Post update

    Both defences are taking a good kicking from our colleagues on Sportsound, but all are in agreement that tonight's match was great entertainment.

  4. Post update

    John Guidetti goal

    It was worth the wait for John Guidetti as he finally got back on the scoresheet in injury time against Inter. That was the type of finishing the Swede was showing earlier this season.

  5. Post update

    BBC Scotland pundit Willie Miller at Celtic Park

    "Celtic have given themselves a chance with that last minute goal. Inter are favourites but only narrow favourites now."

  6. JOIN THE DEBATE

    JD on Facebook: "13million Celtic battle it out with skill and passion against the 100million Inter ... bravo the CELTIC!"

    Joe in Fife: "It's a about the entertainment guys. I'll take that over a boring 1:0 any day. Breathtaking."

    Mark McManus: "Chance may have gone for Celtic to go through but what a turnaround for the team from the start of season. No hammering as predicted by some."

  7. Post update

    We'll hopefully here from the Celtic manager Ronny Deila soon.

  8. Post update

    John Guidetti

    What a way to end a scoring drought. John Guidetti smashed home a left foot effort that secured a crucial draw for Celtic.

  9. Post update

    Pete from Edinburgh: "Bringing a boy like Henderson on instead of African Cup finalist Wakaso was stupid."

    It didn't work out too badly Pete.

  10. Post update

    Just after that John Guidetti goal, Inter had one last chance but Xherdan Shaqiri's free-kick was well saved by Craig Gordon.

  11. JOIN THE DEBATE

    Dylan Mckaig: "Inter don't need to score next week. Celtic have a long game ahead of them. I can't see them winning it."

    Matt Davis: "Every player has bad games or halves sometimes but credit Gordon for a HUGE second half showing!"

  12. Post update

    John Guidetti comes off the bench to break his scoring duck and secure a 3-3 draw for Celtic, who were 2-0 down after just 14 minutes of the game.

  13. Post update

    That was a proper night of European action. Six goals and all the drama you could pack into just over 90 minutes.

  14. FULL-TIME

  15. GOAL

    CELTIC 3-3 INTER MILAN (JOHN GUIDETTI)

    What a finish to this one. John Guidetti starts the move and then races beyond the defence to get on the end of Liam Henderson's pass, before producing a brilliant left foot finish to make it 3-3.

  16. Post update

    Gary Mackay-Steven and Efe Ambrose link up on the right but when the ball is played into the box there are four Inter defenders without a hooped shirt near them. Easy clearance.

  17. Post update

    The fourth official indicates four minutes of injury time. That's enough time for six goals by the standards of the first half...

  18. Post update

    Celtic are piling forward looking for the leveller but the Italians are well organised. Just a minute left of the 90 now...

  19. GREAT SAVE!

    An Inter free kick is knocked square to Xherdan Shaqiri who tries his luck from distance but Craig Gordon sticks out his left hand and clears it to safety.

  20. Post update

    Inter threaten to break beyond the back line but the pass from Fredy Guarin in midfield is far too heavy.

  21. Post update

    We're into the last 10 minutes now...

  22. Post update

    Celtic bring on Efe Ambrose for Adam Matthews.

  23. JOIN THE DEBATE

    Colm Aintches: "This would be a good time for Guidetti to break his recent dry spell."

    I'm sure the Swedish striker agrees with you Colm.

  24. Post update

    Another change for Inter as Brazilian Dodo comes on in place of Zdravko Kuzmanovic.

    Inter take striker Mauro Icardi off with Mateo Kovacic on, while Celtic bring on John Guidetti and Liam Henderson for Stuart Armstrong and Leigh Griffiths.

    Leigh Griffiiths

    Leigh Griffiths had the chance to equalise but Inter keeper Juan Pablo Carrizo was up to the task with a fine save.

  28. Post update

    Xherdan Shaqiri tries to outfox Craig Gordon by going for goal from a wide free-kick, but the keeper gathers easily.

  29. JOIN THE DEBATE

    De Saint Austin on Facebook: "Celtic - kings in Scotland, minnows abroad."

    Colm Aintches: "The real Craig Gordon has managed to overpower his evil twin at the break and get back in the jersey."

  30. Post update

    A Celtic corner kick eventually falls to skipper Scott Brown and he rifles in a shot that cannons off one of the bodies in the box.

  31. Post update

    What a chance for Celtic to square it. Emilio Izaguirre curls a long ball into the box and Stefan Johansen controls it for Leigh Griffiths but he can't beat the keeper.

  32. Post update

    Celtic are having a spell of pressure but the final ball is costing them at this point.

  33. JOIN THE DEBATE

    Ryan Hawes: Craig Gordon, arguably best British keeper of last decade. Poor first half but he'll bounce back. Great keeper."

  34. CLOSE!

    Celtic get in behind the Inter back line thanks to a mix-up but Gary Mackay-Steven's shot is tame and Juan Pablo Carrizo blocks easily with his feet.

  35. Post update

    Two tricky left footed wingers battle it out on the touchline and it's Gary Mackay-Steven who gets the better of Inter's Xherdan Shaqiri, winning a throw-in for the hosts.

  36. Post update

    The pace has dropped off ever so slightly at the start of this second half, but there's still plenty of threat any time these teams go forward.

  37. Post update

    Nir Bitton isn't known for his goals but he goes mighty close with a 35-yarder that goes narrowly wide of Juan Pablo Carrizo right-hand post.

  38. GREAT SAVE!

    It's that man Xherdan Shaqiri causing problems again, cutting in from the right and curling an effort that forces Craig Gordon into an excellent one-handed save.

  39. Post update

    iNTER GOAL

    Celtic keeper Craig Gordon has been in great form this season but it's not been his night so far and he was badly at fault for Inter Milan's third goal.

  40. JOIN THE DEBATE

    David Elliot on Facebook: "I think it will finish 5-3 Inter... Craig Gordon should be replaced or it could be more."

  41. Post update

    Inter striker Rodrigo Palacio doesn't have the pace to run away from the Celtic defence and instead fires in a shot that is easy for Craig Gordon.

  42. JOIN THE DEBATE

    Matt Davis: "Inter have been gifted a few goals, if Celtic stay focused they can turn this around."

    Gary from Colburn: "Come on Celtic, three goal, please play you hearts out."

    Tom English at Celtic Park

    BBC Scotland

    Janet on Facebook: "Total disaster for Craig Gordon, cost Celtic 2 goals tonight... he's been so good for them as well, I feel for him."

    Martin McMahon on Facebook: "Poor Craig Gordon - Culpable for goals 1 and 3, Partly guilty for #2. Having a 'mare tonight!"

  49. Post update

  51. HALF-TIME

    The referee's whistle draws what has been a breathtaking first half of football to a close.

    More of the same in the second half please lads...

  52. GOAL

    CELTIC 2-3 INTER MILAN (RODRIGO PALACIO)

    Gary Medel's long diagonal should be gathered straightforwardly by Craig Gordon, but the diving Celtic goalkeeper lets it drop from his grasp and Inter's Rodrigo Palacio is there to tuck it in to an empty net from an angle.

  53. Post update

    There's only two minutes left in what has been a sensational first half. Xherdan Shaqiri curls a free kick into the Celtic box but it drifts harmlessly wide.

  54. Post update

    A tidy bit of foot-work in the box by Scott Brown almost tees up Stefan Johansen but the Inter defence are quick to close him down. The ball breaks to Gary Mackay-Steven but his shot is deflected away from danger.

    David on Facebook: "Wow what a difference 2 minutes make, come on Celtic!!!"

    Tim Oliver: "Stuart Armstrong showing he's a brilliant buy for Celtic. Rescued them in this tie in seconds."

    There were a fair few messages sent in from people telling us that the tie was already over at 2-0 to Inter. I'll spare those folk embarrassment though.

  59. Post update

    Another chance for Celtic as Stefan Johansen knocks a free-kick into the area but Nir Bitton can only nod wide.

    Stuart Armstrong

    What a night for Stuart Armstrong on his European debut for Celtic, a goal and a huge hand in the second.

  61. Post update

    Leigh Griffiths heads high over the bar as Celtic threaten to take the lead. I'm not sure my typing fingers can keep up with this...

    CELTIC 2-2 INTER MILAN (HUGO CAMPAGNARO own goal)

    Another quick-fire goal pulls Celtic level. Stefan Johansen loops the ball into the box following a throw-in and Stuart Armstrong puts enough pressure on Hugo Campagnaro to make the Inter defender knock into his own goal at the near-post.

  63. GOAL

  68. GOAL

    CELTIC 0-2 INTER MILAN (RODRIGO PALACIO)

    Xherdan Shaqiri has a shot blocked by Craig Gordon but from the resulting corner the same player knocks the ball back into the box and Argentine Rodrigo Palacio reacts quickest to bury it beyond Craig Gordon.

  69. Post update

    Inter get another sight of goal as a poor clearance from Virgil van Dijk allows Zdravko Kuzmanovic to break forward and unleash a right foot drive, but thankfully for van Dijk it goes high into the stand.

    It's the start the hosts were dreading as Xherdan Shaqiri squeezes home an effort to give Inter the lead. Zdravko Kuzmanovic knocked the ball over the top and Shaqiri tried a left foot shot that goalkeeper Craig Gordon blocked back into the forward's path, and he made no mistake second time out with a neat low finish.

  73. Post update

    One of the key battles tonight is sure to be in midfield with Celtic's all-action captain Scott Brown up against Gary "The Pitbull" Medel.

  74. Post update

    Celtic are chasing down the Italians like terriers and Gary Mackay-Steven has the first dig at goal, but his low effort is no trouble for Juan Pablo Carrizo.

  80. Post update

    Inter boss Roberto Mancini revealed his joy at facing a full house at Celtic Park and even while empty last night, it had plenty of appeal for his players...

    Inter players at Celtic Park

    Inter stars Mauro Icardi, Fredy Guarin and Gary Medel made sure to get their snaps taken at Celtic Park while having a look around on Wednesday night.

  81. Post update

    Celtic go into the match in excellent form but they have been dealt a blow with the news Kris Commons is out due to a hamstring injury.

    Inter have had a poor season by their high standards but the appointment of Roberto Mancini for his second spell in charge seems to now be having the desired impact. They have won their last two Serie A matches - 4-1 at Atalanta and 3-0 at home to Palermo - and are now 10th in the table.

  82. Post update

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland

    European nights at Celtic Park this season have lacked the sparkling intensity of recent seasons - the Europa League will do that. But this evening feels different. The prospect of facing a genuine European giant - albeit a slightly diminished one - has increased the sense of anticipation about the stadium and it could be reminiscent of a big Champions League night.

    Fabrizio Ravanelli

    Italian legend and one-time Dundee striker Fabrizio Ravanelli spoke to our colleagues on BBC Radio Scotland earlier about tonight's game...

    "Inter Milan is confident in this moment. They have won their last two games and played very well. It is a good quality team but sometimes they do not defend very well. I'm sure they will do very well.

    "When [Roberto] Mancini arrived at Inter it was very difficult for him, but now his work on the pitch is working.

    "When you are a coach at Inter, every competition is very important. It is important that he gets them to the final.

    "Celtic is a very good club and a good team but the players at Inter are very good quality at this moment. It will be very hard for Celtic."

    Celtic's Kris Commons

    Kris Commons has been a key player for Celtic in recent weeks but they must do without is creative influence tonight as he remains sidelined with a hamstring problem. The two recent signings, Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong, are both in the starting line-up.
