  1. Good night

    That's all from me folks.

    It turned out to be a very good evening for both Celtic and Rangers, although there were a few sticky moments along the way.

    A welcome start to the Europa League campaign, with the promise of lots more drama to come over the next few months.

    We'll be back with all of the Scottish Premiership action over the weekend. Join us then.

  2. 'I know I can rely on Griffiths' - Rodgers

    FT: Celtic 1-0 Rosenborg

    Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers was full of praise for match-winner Leigh Griffiths in his post-match media conference.

    "We know Leigh can score goals so you fancy him in a game like that, that if there’s a chance he can take it. We need that in the team," he said.

    "I love working with him. He's vital to this club here and this squad. He's got that hunger. It's him realising as well at 28 that when you're at the biggest clubs, you have to fight, and he does that.

    "I know that whether he plays or whether I bring him on, we have a chance to score.

    "The modern-day striker is about much more than putting the ball in the net. The game has moved on and you have to participate in it tactically and understand how you're working defensively and what your role is with and without the ball.

    "That's something hopefully he'll tell you he's developed over the last two years.

    "He's got this in-built brain to deal with all this. A lot of players, whatever happens in their world can be a real distraction. He learns to deal with it. I know I can rely on him."

    Quote Message: You heard the crowd. When Leigh Griffiths came on, they were on their feet, they were excited. That's what he brings
  4. 'We found a way to win' - Rodgers

    FT: Celtic 0-0 Rosenborg

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was pleased his team "found a way to win" despite not being "at the top of our game".

    "It was a great win in relation to our spirit, persistence to keep going to the very end," he said.

    "Five clean sheets in a row as well, which is good, didn’t have a shot on target against us.

    "I understand it [the frustration] with the supporters. They’ve been used to the team being a bit more dynamic and faster and better in our attacking moments. At the moment, too many passes going back.

    "But it’ll come and we’ll find the solutions. It’s very important you continue to win and to get a 1-0 in the opening European game, it’s a very important three points for us."

  5. Griffiths 'buzzing' at impact

    FT: Celtic 1-0 Rosenborg

    Leigh Griffiths is delighted to have won the game for Celtic despite starting on the bench.

    "I'm buzzing," the striker tells BBC Scotland. "I wanted to come on and make an impact and the gaffer said, when we make chances, make sure you are in the box because one will fall to you and I managed to put it away.

    "Obviously I'd like to play longer, but it is entirely up to the manager what he wants to do.

    "I am happy to come off the bench, make an impact and get the three points for the team."

    It's back to the bread and butter of the Scottish Premiership for Celtic and Rangers at the weekend. Both are in action on Sunday, with the champions away to Kilmarnock and St Johnstone visiting Ibrox.

  8. Celtic can play a lot better - Rodgers

    FT: Celtic 1-0 Rosenborg

    "We can play a lot better," Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers tells BT Sport.

    "It was a win for our spirit and our persistence. We kept going, we kept fighting.

    "We need to improve considerably in the final third at this level. It's still early in the season and we will keep looking for solutions in training."

  9. Viennese whirl for Rangers

    So, what next for Rangers in this competition? They're also up against Austrian opposition.

    Steven Gerrard's men are at home to Rapid Vienna, who sit top of Group G after beating Spartak Moscow 2-0 in Austria.

  10. Salzburg & Celtic at the top of Group B

    Another late goal settled a victory for RB Salzburg away to RB Leipzig in Germany, with Fredrik Gulbrandsen making it 3-2 to the visitors on 89 minutes.

    Celtic go to Austria next on 4 October.

  11. 'We're good when we go for jugular'

    FT: Villarreal 2-2 Rangers

    Steven Gerrard says he is proud of the way his Rangers players responded to his half-time call to show greater belief before coming from behind to draw 2-2 in Villarreal.

    "We are a good team when we show it, when we believe and when we go for the jugular," the manager told Rangers TV. "We can create chances against anyone.

    "We have unbelievable quality. The big message is watch the second half tonight and start believing you are a very good team.

    "It is a fantastic result. I asked them at half-time to just show a little bit more belief and confidence once we enter the final third."

    Gerrard thought it was up there with his side's best performances since he took charge in the summer considering the strength of the opposition.

    "We told them before the game, we are capable of hurting Villarreal and the other teams in the group," he said.

    "To come here and put a point on the board, I'd have certainly taken it before the game. This, on paper, is probably the toughest test for us in the group."

  12. Post update

    FT: Celtic 1-0 Rosenborg

    That goal from Leigh Griffiths ends a run of 10 home games in European group stage games without a win for Celtic and ends an 11-game unbeaten sequence for Rosenborg.

  13. FULL-TIME Celtic 1-0 Rosenborg

    Celtic start their Europa League group campaign with three points thanks to that late header from Leigh Griffiths.

    There was a lot of huffing and puffing but Brendan Rodgers' side got there in the end.

  14. Three minutes remaining

    Celtic 1-0 Rosenborg

    We'll get three minutes of stoppage time. Rosenborg haven't posed any kind of threat since early in the first half. Can the visitors muster anything late on?

  15. 'Big lift for Celtic'

    Celtic 1-0 Rosenborg

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Three points will be huge for Celtic's confidence. They know they are a good team but they haven't quite being doing it this season.
  16. GOAL Celtic 1-0 Rosenborg

    Leigh Griffiths

    The breakthrough... Scott Brown clips a diagonal ball to the right of the penalty area, where Dedryck Boyata rises to head the ball in for Leigh Griffiths to race on to and nod past the exposed Andre Hansen.

  17. Post update

    Celtic 0-0 Rosenborg

    The rain is teaming down in the east end of Glasgow now as Rosenborg continue to frustrate the hosts with a well-organised display.

  18. Johnston spurns 'huge chance'

    Celtic 0-0 Rosenborg

    Michael Stewart

    Former Scotland midfielder on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: A huge chance. Kieran Tierney gets past the full-back and you're just expecting the left foot of Leigh Griffiths to wrap around it. To be fair to Mikey Johnston, he's made a very good run and filled the penalty-spot area, but sticks it over the crossbar.
  19. CLOSE!

    Celtic 0-0 Rosenborg

    That's the best chance of the night... Callum McGregor does well to win the ball back immediately after giving it away. Celtic make progress with another storming run from Kieran Tierney, who cuts the ball towards the penalty spot for Mikey Johnston but the teenager slams his first-time effort over the top.

  20. Post update

    Celtic 0-0 Rosenborg

    Alexander Soderlund has run his race for the visitors as Jonathan Levi adds some fresh legs to the Rosenborg front line.
