Celtic hoping to edge closer to Champions League spot

Celtic will hope to put one foot in the coveted Champions League group stage this evening.

Brendan Rodger’s team entertain Astana in the first leg of their play off in Glasgow.

The sides are meeting for the second year in a row.

Celtic needed a late penalty to beat the Kazakhstan club in the third qualifying round last season.

Rodgers says his side have progressed a lot since then.

Kick off at Celtic Park is at 7.45
