    "We need to beat Molde at home then there could still be a chance [of progression] and that's positive."

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila has just been speaking to BT Sport and described Kris Commons' reaction to being taken off as "unacceptable".

    Molde manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

    "Difficult conditions made it not the best of games. Sometimes it was slow. It's been a completely different type of playing for these boys in Europe than in Norway and it's worked.

    "I'm happy with my boys and I think we defended really well against Celtic. Obviously three more points will get us through. Can we get two? Can we get three? Three big games ahead."

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland in Molde, Norway

    "One of the least inspiring performances from Celtic in Europe in recent times. Aside from a decent opening spell, they were second-best throughout.

    Nir Bitton and Martin Linnes

    "Molde look a pretty good team but for Celtic to be outplayed by a team sitting seventh in the Norwegian league is a million miles from the type of performance being turned in by the club only three seasons ago in the Champions League."

  13. FULL-TIME

    Fenerbahce 1-0 Ajax

    Fenerbahce get their first win in Group A to move into second in the section on four points - three behind Molde and two ahead of Ajax and Celtic.

    Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen

    "Nothing short of a Norwegian nightmare for Celtic. They were outfought, outfoxed and worryingly outplayed for most of the rain soaked match by a side who lie seventh in Norway's top league.

    "Molde continue to show why they sit at the top of group A but Celtic need a drastic re-think before the Norwegians visit Celtic Park in two weeks' time.

    "Dismal stuff from the visitors on a dismal night in Norway."

  15. FULL-TIME

    Molde 3-1 Celtic

    Scott Brown and Daniel Berg Hestad

    A night to forget for Celtic as Molde win comfortably to remain top of Group A. The temporary reprieve of Kris Commons' goal was quickly wiped out as Molde scored their third through Mohamed Elyounoussi. Hard work ahead for Ronny Deila and his side.

    Marc Orr: "Eager to learn which football tactics book advises to take off the only player in your team who looks capable of doing something when you're 3-1 down..."

  22. SUBSTITUTION

    Mohamed Elyounoussi, scorer of Molde's third goal, comes off to be replaced by Mushaga Bakenga.

  23. GREAT SAVE!

    Etzaz Hussain has a chance for Molde but Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon is able to block and concede a corner.

  24. SUBSTITUTION

    Eirik Hestad has come on for Ola Kamara and soon tests Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon with a left-foot shot.

    "The travelling Celtic supporters are not happy with the substitution of Kris Commons and neither is the forward, venting his spleen towards the bench as he comes off."

  34. CLOSE!

    Celtic's Kris Commons tries a shot that is deflected wide in the wet and windy conditions.

  35. Post update

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport in Molde, Norway

    "Too many of Celtic's key players are just not on their game tonight. Izaguirre has been wasteful, Bitton has lacked drive and while Brown has looked busy, his passing has been wayward."

  36. CLOSE!

    The unmarked Ola Kamara heads wide for Molde. That really should have been four for the hosts as the striker was left on his own in front of goal.

  37. Post update

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland in Molde, Norway

    "An utterly crazy 60 seconds, which began with the Celtic fans in raptures at Kris Commons' goal and ended with them tearing their hair out as Mohamed Elyounoussi squeezed the ball past Craig Gordon to restore the two-goal lead. Ronny Deila will surely be equally frustrated by the failure to capitalise on the chink of light offered by the Commons goal."

    "The Commons lifeline lasted just minutes. Once again terrible defending and the twogoal deficit is restored through Elyounoussi. Celtic can't afford to feel sorry for themselves though."

  41. GOAL

    Molde 3-1 Celtic (Elyounoussi)

    Molde players celebrating

    But Celtic's reprieve does not last long as a Mohamed Elyounoussi volley on the left squirms past Craig Gordon.

  42. GOAL

    Molde 2-1 Celtic (Commons)

    Kris Commons scores for Celtic against Molde

    Now it is time for Molde to make a defensive error as the ball is gifted to Kris Commons by Martin Linnes and the Celtic forward shows composure to take a touch and lift the ball over Ethan Horvath.

  43. SUBSTITUTION

    Molde have been forced into a change with Knut Olav Rindaroy limping off to be replaced at left-back by Per Egil Flo.

    "As the soaked Celtic player trudge off the pitch at the break here, a penny for the thoughts of manager Ronny Deila. He watched his side take early control of this match but then looked on in horror as his players were punished once and then twice for sloppy defending.

    Molde players celebrating

    "It became all too familiar and predictable as the visitors knocked the ball around before losing it and chasing desperately as Molde hit them on the break time and time again. The conditions haven't helped but Celtic need a plan B here."

    Molde and Celtic players

    "Deeply unimpressive from Celtic aside from a promising first 10 minutes. No real threat to the goal of Ethan Horvath at all. Yes the conditions are difficult, but they have to find a way to deal with them in the second 45. Otherwise Ronny Deila's return to Norway ain't going to be a happy one."

  54. HALF-TIME

    Molde 2-0 Celtic

    Celtic players looking dejected

    Not the first half Celtic would have wanted and they have it all to do in the second period. Defensive frailty has dogged the Scottish champions in Europe this season and Molde have taken full advantage.

  55. CLOSE!

    Mohamed Elyounoussi pressurises Celtic on their right and his early cross has to be tipped over by goalkeeper Craig Gordon.

    "This is turning horribly wrong for Celtic, whose best hope at this stage might be the abandonment of the match in worsening conditions. They started so well but defensive slackness has cost them. They have to recover their poise, which will be easier said than done in the face of driving wind and rain."

  62. Post update

    The conditions are making this match fraught and frantic. Water is rising off the turf pretty much every time a pass is made, players are slipping and the ball is holding up a lot.

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport in Molde, Norway

    "A long night for Celtic now. Questions again about the defence as Forren found himself unmarked at the back of the box. No chance for Gordon with the fierce volley into the ground and then into the net. The conditions deteriorating too."

  65. GOAL

    Molde 2-0 Celtic (Forren)

    Vegard Forren scores for Molde against Celtic

    The hosts double their lead as Vegard Forren sends a downward volley bouncing off the sodden turf and past Craig Gordon.

  66. Post update

    Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong flashes a shot high and wide of goal after getting the break of the ball outside the area.

    Ola Kamara, who is on loan at Molde from Austria Vienna, has scored his first goal in Group A.

  68. Post update

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport in Molde, Norway

    "All too easy for Molde. They sucked Celtic and hit them with deadly precision on the break. Craig Gordon beaten at his near post but the back four was sliced open and that left him exposed."

  69. GOAL

    Molde 1-0 Celtic (Kamara)

    Molde players celebrating

    Against the run of play, Molde take the lead. Dedryck Boyata concedes possession near the halfway line and Mohamed Elyounoussi drives with the ball diagonally across the pitch from left to right before releasing Ola Kamara to place the ball past Craig Gordon at his near post.

  70. Post update

    Another chance for Celtic as they break from a Molde attack. Stefan Johansen has options to his right and left as he bares down on goal and chooses the wrong one - Kris Commons to his right, with the forward crowded out as Leigh Griffiths peels away unmarked on the left.

  71. Post update

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport in Molde, Norway

    "Celtic have started with a real determination here. They're keeping the ball well under tricky conditions. There's a fair bit of surface water and the howling wind is crashing in off the fjords nearby."

  72. Post update

    The ease with which Celtic opened up the Molde defence will be an encouragement to the visitors. That said, Molde's success so far in Group A has been based on a counter-attacking approach and they are bound to have openings of their own as the match wares on.

  73. Post update

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland in Molde, Norway

    "Immediate correction to make as the game gets under way. Far from being a slick surface, the ball is holding up because the artificial pitch has become waterlogged. Celtic passing up an early chance for Leigh Griffiths."

  74. CLOSE!

    First opening goes Celtic's way. Stuart Armstrong burrows down the inside right channel and squares for Leigh Griffiths, who cannot quite get the ball under control in the six-yard box and his shot is blocked by the Molde defence.

  75. Post update

    Molde coach Old Gunnar Solskjaer is not in the dugout at the start of this match. The 42-year-old, who returned for a second spell in charge of the club this week, is watching from a booth in the stand.
