  1. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Celtic 5-0 KR Reykjavik

    The visitors have a goal for their efforts… No, an offside flag is up, denying Palmi Palmason a scrapbook moment.

    It was a nice, deft header in front of goal but he was clearly off.

  2. Post update

    Celtic 5-0 KR Reykjavik

    A nice step over to create room for the shot but Olivier Ntcham’s shot from the edge of the penalty area flies high over the top.

  3. Post update

    Celtic 5-0 KR Reykjavik

    Strikers Albian Ajeti and Patryk Klimala will be desperate to get in the thick of it against bedraggled opposition but the pace had dropped again.

  4. Ajeti & Klimala on for Celtic

    Celtic 5-0 KR Reykjavik

    With a big grin on his face after scoring, Odsonne Edouard is withdrawn, along with Ryan Christie.

    Albian Ajeti is on for his Celtic debut, along with Patryk Klimala.

    Fantastic footwork from Odsonne Edouard as he dances his way past three bewildered defenders before rolling a composed finish beyond the sprawling keeper.

  6. CLOSE!

    Celtic 4-0 KR Reykjavik

    A wee shimmy in the box from Odsonne Edouard and the Celtic striker’s shot is deflected into the side-netting.

  7. Post update

    Celtic 4-0 KR Reykjavik

    The tempo has taken a distinct dip, with a a few errant passes creeping into Celtic’s game.

    Right on cue, Neil Lennon leaves his dugout to bark out a few instructions. The Celtic boss wants a few more goals.

  8. Ntcham takes over from Brown

    Celtic 4-0 KR Reykjavik

    Celtic captain Scott Brown gets a breather as Olivier Ntcham gets a taste of the action.

  9. Post update

    Celtic 4-0 KR Reykjavik

    That was just asking to be tucked away… Callum McGregor slides a wonderful low delivery in from the left but it zips along the wet turf without any Celtic team-mate getting a touch.

  10. ‘A penny for Leigh Griffiths’ thoughts’

    Celtic 4-0 KR Reykjavik

    Champions League: Celtic begin qualifying quest against KR Reykjavik

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland’s chief sports writer at Celtic Park

    A penny for Leigh Griffiths’ thoughts right now. He turns
    30 on Thursday and has fallen to fourth in the pecking order of strikers behind
    Edouard, Klimala and Ajeti.

    Celtic very much look like they’re moving on from
    him. When he’s fit he needs to get away and play again, needs to reinvent
    himself and get some games. Hard to see how he’s going to do that at Celtic.

  11. Post update

    Celtic 4-0 KR Reykjavik

    Another save for Vasilis Barkas to make as Oskar Hauksson pings in a volley on the lunge from 18 yards.

    The Celtic keeper might have been in trouble if it had gone either side of him but manages to gather at the second attempt.

  12. Taylor off the mark for Celtic

    Celtic 4-0 KR Reykjavik

    That was Greg Taylor’s first Celtic goal.

    The little left-back managed one in four seasons at Kilmarnock.

  13. KR ‘dazzled’ by Celtic

    Celtic 4-0 KR Reykjavik

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: KR were dazzled by the movement of Celtic. No-one picking up Greg Taylor at the back post

    A simple back-post header from Greg Taylor who hardly needs to jump to meet a dinked cross from fellow full-back Hatem Elhamed.

    All started by a slick pass from Mohamed Elyounoussi to James Forrest, who helped it on to Elhamed.

  15. KICK-OFF

    Celtic 3-0 KR Reykjavik

    No changes for Celtic as the second half gets under way.

    Atli Sigurjonsson is on the for the visitors, who must wish they could get away with playing with 12 – or more.

  16. Post update

    HT: Celtic 3-0 KR Reykjavik

    Will the hosts go for five or six or will the tempo dip now the game is safely in hand?

    The second half is not far away.

  17. ‘Nice nuggets’ from Elyounoussi

    HT: Celtic 3-0 KR Reykjavik

  18. Lennon to ring the changes?

    Kheredine Idessane

    BBC Sport Scotland at Celtic Park

    Well, well. A collector’s item (in the context of this
    match) with which to end the half. A fine save from Celtic’s new
    multi-million pound keeper Vasilis Barkas, solidly parrying a very powerful
    effort from Kristian Finnbogason, which would have annoyed the home side had it
    gone in, given the comfort with which they’d dealt with everything else.

    Three up at the break, Neil Lennon, you can bet, will be
    challenging his players with this question: how many more goals can you
    get? I wonder how long he’ll wait to introduce one of his other new
    signings, striker Albian Ajeti, who’ll fancy his chances of opening his Celtic
    account against the tiring Icelanders.

  19. HALF-TIME Celtic 3-0 KR Reykjavik

    Celtic are cruising into the second qualifying round of the Champions League.

    Mohamed Elyounoussi tucked in an early opener, Odsonne Edouard created pressure for an own goal and Christopher Jullien powered in an unstoppable header.

    It’s been a walk in the park.

  20. GREAT SAVE!

    Celtic 3-0 KR Reykjavik

    A chance for the visitors. A very decent one too.

    Kjartan Finnbogason gets plenty of oomph on his shot and Vasilis Barkas, who has been a virtual spectator, makes a smart stop, low to his right.
