Celtic duo Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths have taken to Twitter to react to the win over FC Astana in the Champions League.

Celtic took on the Kazakhstan side in the second leg of their third round qualifying tie on Wednesday.

Things got off to a good start for them too as a penalty from Griffiths in the first half saw his side leading at half time.

However, a 40-yard goal from Agim Ibraimi saw the sides draw level in the game and crucially on aggregate.

The game was heading into extra time and potentially penalties before Dembele won and converted a late penalty to see his side progress at the death. 

The players were clearly delighted with the result, and showed as much in reacting on Twitter.

It now remains to be seen if Celtic can secure their progression to the group stages with another positive set of results in the next round.

They are likely to face a tougher time than they have had in the last two rounds, but will be dreaming of a return after a two-year absence.

Should they not make it through however, they will be at least have Europa League football to fall back on.
