Celtic player ratings
Craig Gordon (7/10)
Made a couple of brave saves to keep Celtic in the game. He had no chance in stopped Leipzig’s only goal but was otherwise superb.
Mikael Lustig (5/10)
The Swede looked comfortable all night as the German side pressed him hard. He was caught on the ball on way too many occasions.
Dedryck Boyata (7/10)
He was defensively very good as his pace helped cut out a number of dangerous passes and runs.
Filip Benkovic (8/10)
His passing was superb on the night and he was also very dominant in the air, winning a number of vital headers.
Kieran Tierney (9/10)
Scored a magnificent goal to send the Hoops in front. He was also defensively solid on the night and picked up a yellow card in the process.
Callum McGregor (8/10)
His quick thinking helped him score the opener for the Hoops. His work rate was very good on the night as he broke down a number of attacks.
Tom Rogic (7/10)
Leipzig dealt with him mostly but he always looked a threat. He wasted a good chance when the Hoops were 1-0.
Ryan Christie (8/10)
Always hassled the Leipzig midfielders and barely gave them time on the ball. A tireless engine on the night and came up with an assist.
James Forrest (7/10)
Produced a stunning assist for Tierney’s first goal after coming back from injury. He was very direct and that caused all sorts of problems for the Bundesliga side.
Scott Sinclair (7/10)
He worked hard tracking back and helped defensively. Showed some nice touches up front but fluffed his lines when sent clean on goal.
Odsonne Edouard (8/10)
Had a tough job to do against the Leipzig defenders. Took his goal well and caused all sorts of problems with his pace.
Youssouf Mulumbu (3/10)
He came on in place of the injured Forrest. Leipzig almost scored through his mistake.
Kristoffer Ajer (N/A)
Came on too late and didn’t have much to do apart from seeing out the win.
