  1. Good night

    That's all for tonight folks. Celtic are safely into the second round of Champions League qualifying.

    Aberdeen, Rangers and Kilmarnock will aim to follow suit in the Europa League tomorrow, so join us for all the action. The Dons gets started in Finland at 17:00 BST.

    Cheers for now.

  2. 'Celtic can qualify'

    Quote Message: There's enough quality in this Celtic team to get through the qualifying rounds, but if they give away more silly goals, it will be too high a mountain to climb. Neil Lennon will be looking at that very carefully
  3. Celtic's attacking threat in numbers

  4. Scottish trio all enjoy leads

    We're back tomorrow with more European action as Rangers, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen aim to make it over the first hurdle in Europa League qualifying.

    Rangers are looking to build on a very healthy 4-0 lead against St Joseph's at Ibrox, while Kilmarnock are also in rude health after a 2-1 win away to Welsh side Connah's Quay.

    Aberdeen really should have beaten RoPS by four or five but might be a bit nervous defending a 2-1 lead up in Lapland after conceding a sloppy late goal at Pittodrie.

    The Dons kick off at 17:00, with the games in Scotland starting at 19:45.

  5. Oan goal for Djorkaeff

    Scottish League Cup

    "There's only wan Oan Djorkaeff" might become a common cry for St Mirren fans this season.

    The son of the French midfield legend scored the winner in his first start to save the top-flight side's blushes at home to League Two's Edinburgh City.

    But it is Dunfermline Athletic who lead Group H by three points after thumping Albion Rovers 6-0, with new signing Kevin Nisbet scoring the season's first hat-trick.

    League One champions Arbroath were also in scoring form to stretch into the lead in Group C with their second win in a row after a 6-1 hammering of Stirling Albion.

    Top-flight Hibernian are four points behind but have a game in hand.

    Clyde hit the woodwork twice early on, but Premiership visitors Hamilton Accies prevailed to move two points behind Partick Thistle in Group F.

    Dundee's bonus-point from their goalless draw with Cove Rangers leaves James McPake's side a point behind Peterhead in Group D.

  6. Griffiths 'gave the crowd a lift'

    FT: Celtic 2-1 Sarajevo (5-2)

    Neil Lennon was also delighted to have Leigh Griffiths back in action for his first competitive outing in 2019.

    "Fantastic for him, and what a reception he got, and that should mean the world to him," he says. "I think the Celtic support showed what he means to them, and he was full of energy and gave them a lift. We're delighted to see him back to full fitness.

    "He's a smart centre-forward, and a sharp finisher. It'll take him a while, he's been out for a long time, But, step by step, we're really pleased with the progress he's making now."

  7. Lennon 'more than satisfied'

    FT: Celtic 2-1 Sarajevo (5-2)

    More from Celtic boss Neil Lennon...

    "It's really early, and don't forget we've got a makeshift back-four with Kris at right-back, and Boli's just in the building and hasn't trained much because he rolled his ankle. Obviously there's a lot of work to be done on players coming in so I'm more than satisfied with the way we negotiated the two ties."

    On Bolingoli's urge to get forward so often...

    "That's something we're going to temper a wee bit," says Lennon. "You can see he can play left-back and left-wing, but obviously we want him playing left-back. We want him to support the strikers but to make sure he's defending, but that'll all come. We know he's a top top player, and you could see that in stages tonight."

  8. McGregor & Brown 'exceptionally good' - Lennon

    FT: Celtic 2-1 Sarajevo (5-2)

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon is a happy man.

    He tells BBC Radio Scotland: "I'm very satisfied with the performance and the result. I thought we were excellent and played with some great attacking intent.

    "They're a very good side. To get a through two legs like that so early against a big, strong, physical team, I think we've negotiated the tie very well.

    "You could see they came out far more on the front foot tonight, and they were a week fitter. I thought we played very, very well in the first half and were dominant. The goal we gave away was a sloppy one from our point of view when we had control of the tie and the game and we lost a little bit of momentum.

    "But then Callum McGregor scores an outstanding goal after an outstanding performance. Him and Scott Brown were exceptionally good, and to say that so early is amazing really."

  9. 'Job done but sharpness to be found'

    FT: Celtic 2-1 Sarajevo (5-2)

    The outcome was never really in doubt and with the contest effectively over after the first leg, this was more an exercise in avoiding catastrophe and getting more game time and confidence into this squad.

    They took a while to click but were more purposeful once Ryan Christie’s opener arrived.

    Of slight concern will be the cheap loss of an equaliser. As in the first leg, it was a sloppy concession which against better sides would likely have graver consequences. That needs some attention.

    However, with a favourable-looking tie against Estonian champions Nomme Kalju the next challenge, Celtic can feel confident about where they are right now.

  10. 'Lennon may speak with Bolingoli'

    FT: Celtic 2-1 Sarajevo (5-2)

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: I had no doubt they'd get through. They might be disappointed that they gave away a silly goal, but Neil Lennon might use it as an opportunity to talk to Bolingoli about the defensive side of the game. It was quite visible that he didn't get forward as much after the goal. You can't afford to give the ball away like that in Europe, but he's an exciting prospect
  11. 'A very good performance' from Celtic

    FT: Celtic 2-1 Sarajevo (5-2)

    John Hughes

    Former Hibernian manager on Sportsound

    Quote Message: It was a very good performance played at a really good tempo. Two good goals, and the job's done. Hopefully there aren't any injuries and now they're into the next round
  12. Dundee earn bonus point on penalties

    League Two newcomers Cove Rangers can be proud of holding Dundee to a 0-0 draw but it's the Championship side who leave with an extra point after prevailing in a shoot-out.

    Paul McGowan fired in the decisive penalty for a 3-2 "win".

  13. Who next for Celtic and when?

    FT: Celtic 2-1 Sarajevo (5-2)

    Having seen off Bosnian opposition with relative ease, Celtic now face an Estonian test.

    Nomme Kalju visit Glasgow next Wednesday before the return in Tallinn on 30 July.

    Remember, the Scottish champions must negotiate four rounds of qualifying to reach the lucrative group stage of the Champions League.

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: He's only got a couple of minutes to show us what he can do, but Ewan Henderson has a very, very bright future. We know Neil Lennon likes him, and Brendan Rodgers definitely liked him to give him an opportunity
