  • Thanks for following every kick from a remarkable night at Celtic Park. Hope you enjoyed the match as much as I did. See you in the knockout phase next year!

  • It's all over in the Nou Camp - and it's all over in Glasgow! Celtic reach the last-16 of the Champions League!!

  • McGeady barges over Samaras to hand Celtic a free-kick around 25 yards out. Nearly there Celtic fans!

  • Samaras and Mulgrew are holding off the Spartak defence as they manage to keep the ball near the corner flag for over a minute.

  • Neil Lennon is chomping hard on his chewing gum as Samaras holds the ball up at the Spartak corner flag. I'm sure he won't be the only one.

  • Samaras thumps forward to Lassad as Celtic try to hold on to the ball for as long as possible.

  • Five minutes of stoppage time will also be played in Glasgow.

  • There's a lengthy stoppage at Celtic Park as goalscorer Commons is taken off the pitch on a stretcher.

  • Barcelona are also down to 10 men as Messi goes off injured with all three subs on. And there's five minutes of stoppage time at the Nou Camp. Nervy final few moments ahead.

  • Kallstrom receives his second yellow card as he catches Commons with a high boot in what looked to be a painful area around the groin.

  • McGeady goes into the book for a rash challenge.

  • Nervous moment for Forster who horribly slices Wilson's backpass, but escapes with only a red face and not a costly error.

  • Skipper Scott Brown goes off to be replaced by Joe Ledley as Celtic look to see things out.

  • I've got to say I think Samaras tumbled rather easily under Suchy's challenge. But the majority of Celtic Park does not care.

  • The pendulum swings back in Celtic's favour after that goal. They are just eight minutes away from progressing to the last-16.

  • GOAL!!! Celtic Park goes absolutely nuts as Commons thumps in the spotkick off the crossbar.

  • Oh. My. Word. Something could be about to give at Celtic Park as Samaras goes down under a challenge from Suchy.

  • Still goalless at the Nou Camp - is something going to give?

  • CHANCE! Lassad earns another Celtic corner, which is firmly met by Mulgrew. And it takes an acrobatic save from Pesiakov to push the ball over the bar. So close.

  • Emineke peels off to the left flank and plays into the feet of Dzyuba inside the home area. But Celtic breathe a sigh of relief as his heavy touch sends the ball onto his hand and Celtic get the free kick.
