O’Connell was handed the nod to start in Celtic’s crucial Champions League tie yesterday, and he did not let anybody down.

The centre-back was robust in his approach, and Celtic fans were raving about his performance.

Celtic won against Astana in dramatic fashion, as they required a last minute penalty to progress.

The Bhoys had taken the lead through Leigh Griffiths, but they were pegged back when Astana scored in the second half.

However, with the match seemingly heading into extra-time, Moussa Dembele scored from the penalty spot to put Rodgers’ men into the next round.
