    "Rogic on for Celtic now. Had a horrible time with injuries last year but fit again. Ciftci off. Not a great night for the Turk who fired well over the bar at least three times."

    This is Tom Rogic's first appearance since November 2013 after a long spell out with injury.

    "You get the feeling that both sets of players would happily shake hands and be on their merry way here. Stjarnan having a nibble now and then but they know it's all over."

  27. Post update

    Celtic are playing with much more confidence and fluency now. Stjarnan look tired with over half an hour still to play.

  28. SUBSTITUTION

    Celtic have made their fist change of the evening. Efe Ambrose is on for Mikael Lustig.

  29. Post update

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport in Iceland

    "Tie over. Charlie Mulgrew's clinical finish means it's all over for the home side. They have a very long 40 minutes ahead. The Silverspoons are still singing away!"

  30. GOAL

    Stjarnan 1-2 Celtic (agg 1-4) (Mulgrew)

    And that should be that. Charlie Mulgrew receives a square pass from Scott Brown and drives a low, sliding shot into the right-hand corner. Tie over.

    "Celtic comfortable at the break following that early scare. Barring a complete collapse, they'll be going through to the next round."

  35. HALF-TIME

    Stjarnan 1-1 Celtic (agg 1-3)

    Celtic remain on course for the Champions League third qualifying round after Nir Bitton cancelled out Olafur Karl Finsen's opener for Stjarnan on the night.

    Rudar Pljevlja 0-1 Qarabag (agg 0-1) (Reynaldo)

  37. Post update

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport in Iceland

    "That Bitton goal means Stjarnan now need three without reply here in Iceland. Will they come out and have a go or opt for damage limitation?"

  38. CLOSE!

    Stuart Armstrong flicks up Gary Mackay-Steven's reverse pass and hooks a shot narrowly wide of the Stjarnan goal.

  39. Post update

    That Nir Bitton goal means there will not be an extra-time in Iceland tonight. Stjarnan now need to score three without reply to reach the next round, giving Celtic a healthy advantage.

  40. GOAL

    Stjarnan 1-1 Celtic (agg 1-3) (Bitton)

    It's been coming and Celtic restore their two-goal advantage and bag an away goal in the process as Nir Bitton gets to Stefan Johansen's corner before goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen to head into an empty net.

    Stephen Hay: "Celtic shouldn't even be on the same field as Stjarnan. Several levels above in talent level but you never know ... #bbcscotfootball"

  42. LATEST

    Rudar Pljevlja 0-0 Qarabag (agg 0-0)

    The second leg in Montenegro resumes for the second half. Celtic or Stjarnan will face the hosts or Azerbaijan's Qarabag in the next round but there's no scoring so far in that tie.

  43. Post update

    More frustration for Celtic as Charlie Mulgrew's corner bobs around the box with Nadir Ciftci unable to get a shot away and then Gary Mackay-Steven fails to control the ball properly from a decent shooting position.

  44. Post update

    Stjarnan goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen punches Stuart Armstrong's inswinging corner clear. Pressure beginning to mount on the hosts.

  45. Post update

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport in Iceland

    "Not too many Celtic players arguing as the flag is raised. Boyata goal chalked off and the visitors get their heads down and build again. Stjarnan frustrating the visitors with some pretty solid defending."

    Magggggie: "#bbcscotfootball I can't believe Ronnie persists with Ciftci... He's so one dimensional in comparison to Griffiths"

  47. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Celtic have the ball in the net but it does not count. The visitors had a free-kick and, after Stefan Johansen's shot from Charlie Mulgrew's disguised pass was spilled by goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen, Dedryck Boyata fired in from an offside position.

  48. PENALTY APPEAL

    There were some appeals from the home crowd moments ago after the ball bounced around at the edge of the Celtic penalty area with the Stjarnan supporters insisting visiting defender Dedryck Boyata had handled but Belgian referee Jonathan Lardot was unmoved.

  49. Post update

    Olafur Karl Finsen scores for Stjarnan against Celtic

    Rudar Pljevlja 0-0 Qarabag (agg 0-0)

    Still no indication who Celtic or Stjarnan will face in the next round with Montenegro's Rudar Pljevlja and Azerbaijan's Qarabag goalless at half-time on the night and on aggregate.

  51. Post update

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport in Iceland

    "The Stjarnan boss Runar Pall Sigmundsson said yesterday that the small stadium could give his side a mental advantage. Celtic do look a little spooked early on."

  52. Post update

    Celtic striker Nadir Ciftci latches on to a lobbed pass by Stuart Armstrong into the Stjarnan penalty area before lashing the ball high and wide.

  53. Post update

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport in Iceland

    "The Silverspoons go utterly crazing here as Stjarnan take the lead after seven minutes. Just exactly what Celtic wanted to avoid. A few nervous looks on the visiting bench."

  54. GOAL

    Stjarnan 1-0 Celtic (agg 1-2) (Finsen)

    Not the start Celtic would have wanted. Stjarnan break down the left and Jeppe Hansen plays in Olafur Karl Finsen, who cuts inside Nir Bitton before finishing confidently past Craig Gordon.

    "The Stjarnan fans call themselves the 'Silverspoons.' I'm told this is because they come from a wealthy area and not because of some strange penchant for quality cutlery."
