Odsonne Edouard rewarded Celtic for a much-improved second-half performance in Sarajevo as his winner secured their place in the Europa League group stage.

Neil Lennon's side were rarely troubled as they progressed past the qualifiers for the third year in succession.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon praised his side for a "dominant" display as they edged past Riga FC to reach the Europa League play-off round.

Lennon's side toiled to create at times against the Latvian champions.

But with two minutes left, Jeremie Frimpong crossed for substitute Mohamed Elyounoussi to steer in his third goal of the season and prevent extra-time.

"I felt the performance thoroughly merited the win," said Lennon, whose side face Sarajevo next Thursday.

Once More, Celtic Miss Out On The Champions League Group Stages...

Former European champions Celtic will miss out on the Champions League group stage for the third successive season after a dispiriting 2-1 home defeat by Hungary's Ferencvaros in the second qualifying round on Wednesday.

Neil Lennon's Scottish champions made a dreadful start at an empty Celtic Park as David Siger's dipping long-range shot gave the visitors a seventh-minute lead.

Celtic carved out a host of chances without any joy but appeared to have turned the tie in their favour in the 53rd minute when Ryan Christie's deflected drive looped in.

Hopefully We Can Negotiate The Tie - It Might Take A Bit Of Patience
AHEAD of tonight’s UEFA Champions League second round qualifier against Ferencvaros at Paradise, Neil Lennon recalled the last time Celtic faced Hungarian opposition back during his playing days.

AHEAD of tonight’s UEFA Champions League second round qualifier against Ferencvaros at Paradise, Neil Lennon recalled the last time Celtic faced Hungarian opposition back during his playing days.

In the play-off round of the 2003/04 Champions League, the Hoops overcame MTK Hungaria 5-0 on aggregate – winning 4-0 away from home, courtesy of goals from Henrik Larsson, Didier Agathe, Stiliyan Petrov and Chris Sutton, and prevailing 1-0 via a solo strike from the latter Englishman in Glasgow.

The manager didn’t play in the return leg, but remembers a tough game despite the scoreline 17 years ago.

Speaking to the Celtic View, he said: “We had a really good win away from home, we won 4-0 over there, but I wasn’t involved the home leg, which we also won 1-0. I remember a sprinkler going off in the middle of the game. That was one of those strange moments that sticks in your head. That tie was 5-0 altogether over the course. We’d take something similar in any game we play this season, that’s for sure.

Video Highlights - Celtic 6 - 0 KR REYKJAVIK
Celtic booked their place in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League with a comfortable 6-0 win over KR Reykjavik at Celtic Park.

Celtic booked their place in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League with a comfortable 6-0 win over KR Reykjavik at Celtic Park.

It took Neil Lennon’s side just five minutes to open the scoring and from the moment Mohamed Elyounoussi latched on to a ball over the top from Christopher Jullien, rounded the goalkeeper and slotted the ball into the net, the outcome of the tie was never in doubt.

Elyounoussi was impressive throughout the match and could have added to his first-half tally, as could have Celtic, such was their dominance in the game, though they did manage three in the opening 45 minutes.

The second goal came in the 16th minute, with Hatem Elhamed surging down the right flank and firing a dangerous ball into the six-yard box which Amor Adalsteinsson deflected into his own net while under pressure from Odsonne Edouard.
