Good night

That is all from me this evening. We are back on Friday evening as Kilmarnock entertain Rangers, then on Saturday last season's top two go head to head at Celtic Park, Hamilton host Ross County, Inverness CT play St Johnstone, Motherwell are at home to Dundee, and Hearts make the trip across the M8 to play Partick Thistle.

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday.

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

"It was probably the longest 90 mins I've faced as a coach. I thought Beer Sheva were outstanding, they had nothing to lose. But I have to congratulate my players because all the work we've been doing in pre-season is based around that mentality. Tonight was about resilience. it was an amazing effort from the players on the back of what they've been through before.

"I'm immensely proud."

It wasn't a night where you could talk about the positives. But, when it comes down to it, they got through. Some of them were on their knees at the end of it. Brendan Rodgers had a lot to do, he could see they were struggling but he made the changes. From that perspective he seen what he had to do and he did it.

They may have lost the battle 2-0, but the war was won 5-4 on aggregate.

That was shocking! But I will take it!

FULL-TIME

Legia Warsaw 1-1 Dundalk (agg 3-1)

Unfortunately Dundalk do not join Celtic in the group stage. Michal Kucharczyk finds the net two minutes into time added on to end any hope of a stunning comeback.

The saving grace for the Irish side though is they now go into the Europa League group stage, and could still meet some big names like Manchester United, Roma or Inter Milan.

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

In the end it is captain Scott Brown's goal at Celtic Park which has put the Scottish champions into the group stage.

Craig Gordon made mistakes at both goals this evening, but also saved a first half penalty.

After missing out for the previous two years, Celtic are into Thursday's group stage draw.

FULL-TIME

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Time is against the home side. Tired legs are taking their toll and they can not find a useful final ball. The four minutes are up and the referee blows the full-time whistle. It was not a vintage performance from Celtic by any stretch of the imagination, but they have made it to the group stage.

YELLOW CARD

Craig Gordon

Craig Gordon gets booked for time wasting over the goal kick. He'll take it though. two minutes of the four extra have been played.

ADDED TIME

Four minutes added on. Can Celtic hang on?

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Could be famous last words but Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has not had a save to make since the second goal. Despite Hapoel Beer Sheva dominating possession they can't create a real opportunity. Celtic are edging closer to a £25m bounty and the cream of Europe.

CLOSE!

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Ben Sahar slips in behind the defence, but despite red shirts to pick out he misses them all. Big let off for Celtic.

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Erik Sviatchenko has made a difference for Celtic at the back, currently getting his head to every cross into the box as the home side struggle to create the one big chance they need.A huge 10 minutes to come.

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

The home side make their final change, and little surprise it's an attacking player coming on. Miguel Vitor is replaced by Yuval Shabtai.

Poor use of ball

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Tom English

BBC Sport Scotland

Celtic have successfully completed 59% of their passes. That's lamentably low, but I thought it would be even lower. Their use of the ball has been wretched. Celtic going three at the back to try to sort out this mess.

RED CARD

Legia Warsaw 0-1 Dundalk (agg 2-1) (Hlousek)

It's a boost for Irish side Dundalk as Adam Hlousek is sent off for a second yellow card and Legia Warsaw have to play the final 20 minutes with 10 men

CLOSE!

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Miguel Vitor heads down for Ovidiu Hoban who tries a spectacular volley, and it's heart in mouths stuff from Celtic, but it flies just wide of the post.

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Final change for Celticv as Callum McGregor is replaced by defender Erik Sviatchenko.

Meanwhile Mikael Lustig picks up a yellow card for time wasting.

CLOSE!

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Wonderful chance for Celtic. Tom Rogic takes the ball past three players, it falls kindly for Scott Sinclair who just has the goalkeeper to beat, but his shot is saved and Moussa Dembele is denied on the rebound by a great last ditch challenge.

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Maharan Radi makes a neat turns, fools his marker, and attempts a stinging low shot which takes a deflection off his own player, who not only was offside but whose intervention also takes the sting out of the shot.

The home side are not going away though as they seek the goal that would turn the tie in their favour. Unless Celtic can get a goal themselves they are in for a long half an hour.

CLOSE!

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Moussa Dembele is a whisker away from scoring a glorious goal for Celtic. He gets down the left wins, jinks inside his man, and curls a ball towards the far post and is agonisingly close to hitting the net.

Celtic are opened up at the back again, and Maor Buzaglo gets in behind, but he makes a poor first touch and Mikael Lustig reads the cut-back well and gets it clear.

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Leigh Griffiths comes off for Moussa Dembele as Brendan Rodgers tries to get his side going in the second half. 

CLOSE!

Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5)

Celtic are all over the place. A ball into the box is mis-kicked by Keiran Tierney and sliced towards his own goal, but Craig Gordon is able to save.

Jittery impostors

Tom English

BBC Sport Scotland

"Okay, this is horrific stuff now for Celtic. A slapstick goal of Chaplinesque proportions has removed a lot of the stuffing from that Celtic cushion. Awful positioning from Janko. Timid goalkeeping from Craig Gordon. It looks like the team we have been watching these past weeks has been replaced a gang of jittery impostors. Have they got the character to drag themselves through this? If this was a boxing match, Celtic are on ropes, hanging on for dear life."

This game has the feeling of an away goals victory for the Israelis. Rodgers has to get through and I think it could be curtains.

Alan, Glasgow

Celtic are outclassed on the pitch, Brendan Rodgers needs better players, Scott Brown is atrocious.

GOAL Hapoel Beer Sheva 2-0 Celtic (agg 4-5) (Hoban)

It's a horror defensive mistake from Celtic. Craig Gordon catches the ball but runs into Saidy Janko, the ball spills out of his hands, and Ovidiu Hoban pokes the ball into the empty net. Celtic could not have started the second half any worse.

An absolutely horrendous half of football from Celtic! Changes are needed at the break if we are going to make the group stage.

Jim, Motherwell

Rogic to come on for Celtic?

BBC Scotland commentator Liam McLeod believes Tom Rogic is set to come on in the second half for Celtic, being called up the tunnel while the rest of the substitutes continue to warm up.
