Celtic created history as they overturned a first leg deficit away from home for the first time in Europe and progressed 2-1 on aggregate against Dinamo Moscow. Goals at the end of each half proved enough to send the Hoops into the final qualifying round for the Champions League were, if they are successful, they will take their place in the lucrative group phase.

Celtic levelled the tie just before the break when Scott McDonald headed home at the far post.

Then, with the game seeming destined for extra time, substitute Georgios Samaras jinked his way into the penalty area before scoring a sensational winner in the 90th minute.
