Celtic 3-0 Shakhter Karagandy (Agg. 3-2): Forrest leaves it late to secure Champions League progress


Celtic overturned a two-goal first-leg deficit in dramatic fashion to beat Shakhter Karagandy 3-0 at Celtic Park on Wednesday night to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League.

Neil Lennon's side dominated proceedings and, with the match appearing to be heading for extra-time, finally secured its passage in the 92nd minute as James Forrest netted the decisive third goal.

After being frustrated for the majority of the first half by goalkeeper Aleksandr Mokin, Celtic finally found a way through with an outstanding 25-yard effort from Kris Commons.

The Bhoys were level on aggregate just three minutes after the restart when Georgios Samaras coolly finished from 10 yards, before Forrest then delighted the home fans in added time.
