Celtic FC produced a famous comeback as they overturned a 2-0 first-leg deficit to earn a place in the UEFA Champions League group stage for the eighth time thanks to a 3-0 home victory against FC Shakhter Karagandy.

Neil Lennon's side levelled the aggregate scores with goals either side of half-time from Kris Commons and Giorgos Samaras before, in a dramatic finish, James Forrest hit the decisive third two minutes into added time.
