Callum McGregor marked his Celtic FC debut with a late goal as Ronny Deila's new team eventually breached an organised KR Reykjavík defence in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League second qualifying round tie.

In a game of few clear-cut chances, Celtic always looked the likelier scorers in Deila's first competitive fixture since succeeding Neil Lennon, hitting the woodwork three times. The breakthrough arrived with six minutes left when McGregor struck with a deflected shot from inside the penalty area.
