Ghana winger Wakaso Mubarak, on loan from Rubin Kazan, has reflected on Celtic's 2-2 draw with Red Bull Salzburg last night, Thursday.

Celtic twice took the lead against Salzburg in the Red Bull Arena, Austria, on Thursday evening but were unable to hold on to their lead as the Austrian Bundesliga champions escaped with a salvaged point during their first round of fixtures in the group stage of the Europa League.

Celtic's goals came from Wakaso Mubarak, who netted on his debut having signed for the Scottish Premier League giants on a season-long loan deal from parent club Rubin Kazan three weeks ago.

Despite the goal-scoring heroics of Wakaso and Brown away from home, it was really the goal-saving theatrics from Craig Gordon that kept the Bhoys in the game as, in truth, a late surge from Salzburg could have won the home team the match - Gordon's one-handed stop of Andre Ramalho's header will likely be swiftly added to his personal highlight-reel and he produced a number of other, crucial, saves.

Reflecting on the draw, Wakaso took to social media and said that it was Celtic, not Salzburg, who were "unlucky" not to get all three points. He said: "It is great to have finally made my debut.

"We were unlucky not to get the three points but I am happy to get a goal!"

Celtic are currently second in Group D of the Europa League and take on Dinamo Zagreb at Parkhead on October 2, three weeks ahead of their clash with Astra Giurgiu, also in Glasgow.
