Celtic controlled most of the game tonight and a moment of madness put the bhoy’s passage to the playoffs at risk in the second half. In the end, a VERY late penalty converted by new recruit Moussa Dembele saw off FC Astana who offered very little.
The focus immediately goes to this Friday’s draw where Celtic will find out who stands in their way of the Champions League group stages. With that in mind, Celtic must now stop with the tedious negotiating, humming and hawing and deliver Brendan Rodgers some quality recruits.
We wrote earlier this week that the game tonight would likely decide if the board will splash out for the new manager, with the bhoys now through the tie the board must take the initiative.
The fans backed the team in their thousands tonight now they must back the team and reward the support.
With Aston Villa stepping up their own recruiting effort there could be very quick movement on the stagnant Scott Sinclair transfer. The interest from other players wanting a crack at the Champions League will also be there.
No time to waste! Back Brendan now!
