FORSTER: Very little to do but cracking save to deny Ciprian Deac in the second period. 7

ELHAMED: Solid display from the fullback. Got up and down the flank in support of Forrest and played his part in a strong performance from Celtic’s back four. 7

JULLIEN: Defensively impressively, particularly in the air. Came close twice in the second period with two headers inside a minute. His first effort was saved by Giedrius Arlauskis, his second ended up on the roof of the net. Came close again in the second period as Celtic looked to cement their lead. 7

AJER: Better from the young Norwegian as he matures into the central defensive role. Building a decent partnership with Jullien. 7

BOLINGOLI: Confident and assured display as he worked his way up and down the left-flank. Turned in the cross for Edouard to net and tried his luck with a long range effort that went just over the bar. 7

FORREST: Usual industrious shift as he worked his socks off on the right side. Movement good and Celtic’s most likely source of a second goal with his incursions into the box. Winger’s run which set up Elyounoussi’s goal. 7

BROWN: Typical Brown performance as he hustled and harried in the middle of the park. One moment towards the end of the opening period when his pirouette on the ball drew the applause of the home support. 8

McGREGOR: Caused a stir when deployed at left-back in August when Cluj put Celtic out of the Champions League. Excellent last night in the central pastures. Huge role in the build-up to first goal of the night when he set up Bolingoli. Booked. 8

CHRISTIE: Breathed a little easier after Mario Rondon was booked for diving in the box as he closed in on him. Screwed one effort wide in the second period but worked his socks off. 7

ELYOUNOUSSI: Picked an ideal time to net his first goal for the Parkhead side. Got himself on the end of Forrest’s pass to steer the ball into the net to give Celtic the chance to breathe a little easier. 7

EDOUARD: Quiet by his own standards but rose to glance Bolingoli’s cross into the net and bag his ninth goal of the season, four of which have come in European competition. 7

HAYES: On for final minutes as Celtic saw the game out. 3

NTCHAM: Last minute sub as Celtic ran down the clock. 3
