    Thanks for your company this evening as the Champions League came back with, if not a bang then a bit of a pop at least. Part one of Operation Get Into The Second Round Of Champions League Qualifying (we need a snappier title for this operation to be honest) done for Celtic. Part two coming up next week.

    So the two teams meet again on Tuesday 22 July at Murrayfield (1945 BST kick-off) and it would be a brave/foolish punter who put much on KR Reykjavik going through.

    There we are, Celtic can take a one-goal lead back to Scotland and some positives from what was always going to be a thankless task of a match.
    Thrash the opposition and it's a waste of time, struggle to open them up and put your tin hat on as the criticism rains down. Celtic did a reasonable job in what was in some ways a pre-season game, and the goal makes all the difference to how that performance will be perceived.

    Three minutes added time in Reykjavik... A naughty foul on Izaguirre as the Celtic man clears down the line earns Jonas Saevarsson a yellow deep in the opposition half.

    Celtic go close again to a second which would virtually kill off the second leg - at Murrayfield incidently as Celtic Park is in demand for the Commonwealth Games - but they run offside.

    KR REYKJAVIK 0-1 CELTIC (84 mins) (McGregor)
    Finally, it's there as Celtic's Callum McGregor, in his first competitive action for the club cuts inside and arrows a shot in at the near post. I don't think I'll be winning any football genius competitions if I say that had been coming.

    Celtic almost left themselves open to the sucker punch there as the ball into the box finds not one but two unmarked Reykjavik players waiting at the back post. The defending was so bad it was good as they get in each other's way to see the ball bounce away harmlessly.

    If the new Celtic boss wants some advice from someone who's never coached so much as an Under-8s five-a-side team, here it is... extra shooting practice in training next week, Ronny.

    Kris Commons fires in a sharp low shot from the edge of the box which the keeper spills into the danger zone. McGregor can't control it but the ball works its way to Pukki who drags the all too wide of the goal and hits the outside of the post with his effort.
