Celtic avoided any upsets at home as they eased into the second round of Champions League qualifying rounds with a 2-1 victory over FK Sarajevo.

Goals from Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor in each half sandwiched a consolation from Benjamin Tatar.

The hosts began the game with clear control of the tie and eventually took the lead after a skill run from Odsonne Edouard allowed Christie enough space to poke the ball high into the net.

Minutes later, good work from Lewis Morgan nearly lead to a second but a key touch from the goalkeeper prevented Edouard from tapping home.

As Neil Lennon’s side seemed in total control, a lapse in concentration at the back allowed their opponents in.

A chipped ball into the box was knocked down into the path of Tatar who picked out the far corner with a nice finish to send the small group of visiting fans wild.

The equaliser lead to a slight lull in the action from the home players and the crowd but they were soon buoyed by a winner from Callum McGregor as his low long strike skid along the slick surface and into the net.

Here’s how we rated the players after the win…

Van der Sar hits out at UEFA regarding Celtic and Ajax's European treatment Former Manchester United goalkeeper and current Ajax chief Edwin van der Sar has hit out at UEFA regarding the current Champions League procedure, the Daily Record report. Despite winning the Scottish Premiership, Celtic have to earn their place in the Champions League group stages, similar to Dutch giants Ajax. The Hoops defeated Bosnian side FK Sarajevo 3-1 in the first leg of their first-round qualifier, with the return leg taking place at Celtic Park on Wednesday. Ajax also have to go through a similar procedure to Celtic, even after reaching the last four of the competition last season.

Celtic 2-1 FK Saravejo: Four findings.
Celtic beat FK Sarajevo 2-1 on Wednesday night as they progressed through to the next round of Champions League qualifiers. FK Sarajevo scored in the opening minutes, but it was ruled offside. Celtic then scored a goal that stood from Ryan Christie, who found the ball at his feet and dispatched the ball perfectly into the top corner. The visitors were certainly lucky to end the opening half with all 11 men after two shocking challenges towards the end of the first-half. Celtic then continued their dominance, but were unable to grab a second before halftime.
