CELTIC got their first ever Europa League away win this evening as the bhoys took all three points in Norway.

It was an inspired first half from Celtic who dominated the play and it told in the stats.

But the star of the first half and perhaps the game for Celtic was the £12million Fillip Benkovic. Take a look at his passing stats for the first 45.

The Celtic fans have been raving about the defender, wishing the club could do a deal for the Croatian.

Since coming to Celtic, Filip has created a formidable partnership with Dedryck Boyata and there understanding has been growing on a game by game basis.

It could be Celtic’s best centre back pairing in quite a while.

Benkovic did continue his dominance in the second half and made a vital interception to stop Rosenborg from scoring on the night.

This was Celtic’s first ever away win in the Europa League group – another piece of history for the bhoys and a monkey off their back.
