  1. Farewell

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    And with that, we will take our leave.

    You can read Tom English's match report here and the Sportsound podcast with all the reaction will be available on these pages shortly.

    Awrabest.

  2. 'We needed to change shape'

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Quote Message: Their wingers were very narrow and were able to break out a bit easier than we would have liked. We made a mistake for the first goal and then we needed to change the shape. When we changed it, the fluency was better and the attacking football was outstanding. Attacking-wise it was really good and after the first 20 minutes our pressing was much better so it was a very, very pleasing result. from Brendan Rodgers Celtic manager

  3. 'It was my fault'

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Quote Message: We have two young inexperienced centre-halves who are learning all the time and will only get better. We feel we can go out there, defend and then score goals. I was honest with the players at half-time. It wasn't working for us so it was a good lesson for us. I said to the players it was my fault but we will go back to a system and a rhythm we know well and we stayed calm. from Brendan Rodgers Celtic manager

  4. 'A good half time for us' - Rodgers

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Quote Message: We started the okay, good rhythm, but at European level the balance when you have the ball is important. We made a mistake for the first goal. Once we changed the shape, we had more fluency. Some of our attacking play tonight was terrific. It shows you were the players are at in terms of that calmness. from Brendan Rodgers Celtic manager

  5. 'We can score in Norway'

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Quote Message: We ended the game in a much better position than we were last year. We played really well and know we can go there and score. It is half-time but it's a good one for us. from Brendan Rodgers Celtic manager

  6. 'Celtic have enough'

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Scott McDonald

    Former Celtic striker on BBC Sportsound

    I think Celtic have got more than enough to go and score as well [in the return leg]. Rosenborg have to come out and score and that will work in Celtic's advantage. Hopefully they can cut them open and make it a comfortable night.

  7. Happy man?

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Is Brendan Rodgers pleased? We'll find out as soon as BBC Scotland's Chic Young collars him in the tunnel...

  8. Dominant display

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Uefa's official stats show just how in charge of the game Celtic were...

  9. 'Celtic deserved more'

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Rosenborg did not do a single thing in an attacking sense after Brendan Rodgers changed things. Celtic caused their own problems early on. They were unlucky though as they deserved more than 3-1 tonight.

  10. 'It's not easy'

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Scott McDonald

    Former Celtic striker on BBC Sportsound

    Odsonne Edouard is running at full pace [for the first goal] and to control it and finish it like that is just the cherry on top. It is not easy to do. Not at all.

  11. 'Edouard's second was Larsson-esque'

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland's chief sports writer

    I know Celtic fans might get upset with me, but it was Larsson-esque. It was the cheek to try it and the brilliance to pull it off in such a big game.

  12. All's well that ends well

    Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    But tonight belongs to Celtic. Ultimately, it was a mature performance from Brendan Rodgers side, burnished by three fine goals, and the manager will take satisfaction from how his side responded to a rotten start.

  13. FULL-TIME

    League Cup group stages

    And in case you were wondering, here's how tonight's domestic games finished...

    Group A - Arbroath 4-1 Ross County

    Group B - Forfar Athletic 3-1 Montrose

    Group D - Brechin City 1-7 Dunfermline, Peterhead 0-2 Dundee

    Arbroath's Michael McKenna celebrates after making it 2-1

  14. Is this the moment that sealed the tie?

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Odsonne Edouard clipped in Celtic's third, but will a two-goal cushion be enough to see them through in Tronheim next Wednesday and set up a third qualifying round tie with AEK Athens?

  15. Post update

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Liam McLeod

    BBC Sport Scotland

    They swatted Rosenborg aside and the only annoyance for Celtic tonight is that they only scored three goals.

  16. FULL-TIME - Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    And that's it. Celtic will be content with three goals, maybe frustrated they didn't score more, and irritated by the early concession. Given how the game started, though, they'll be content enough.

  17. Post update

    Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    But Nicklas Bendtner detonates a shot high over the crossbar.

  18. Post update

    Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    One last chance for Rosenborg to clump a ball into the box...

  19. Post update

    Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Looks like Celtic have closed the shop for the night. They're no longer pushing forward with any real vigour and seem happy to settle for a two-goal advantage.

  20. 'A different team'

    Celtic 3-1 Rosenborg

    Scott McDonald

    Former Celtic striker on BBC Sportsound

    It is a completely different team to the one we saw in the first half. The shape has released them. They are really able to get at this Rosenborg side now.
