Celtic’s quest to reach the knockout stages is in their own hands following a 1-0 win over Rosenborg in Trondheim. Scott Sinclair headed the only goal three minutes before the interval for the club’s first ever away victory in the group stages of the competition.

The Hoops moved on to nine points and a draw in their final group fixture against Salzburg, who qualified with a 1-0 win over RB Leipzig, at Parkhead on 13 December would be enough for the Scottish champions to take their place in the draw for the last 32.

“We just wanted to have an opportunity after tonight to have it in our own hands and that’s the way it has worked out,” said Brendan Rodgers, the Celtic manager. “We will go into the last game to win it. It’s very hard to play for a draw and although Salzburg are a very good side, we want to win. We’re going to use the Celtic Park atmosphere – the whole experience – to push us over the line.”

Against a side including the former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner, Celtic scored the goal their first-half dominance deserved after James Forrest picked Sinclair out with a delightful cross to the back post, leaving him to head in from three yards out.

They play Aberdeen in the League Cup final at Hampden on Sunday and are looking to clinch the first part of what they hope will be a treble-treble. On form, it will take a mighty effort by the Dons to stop them. One concern for Rodgers was seeing his right-back Mikael Lustig forced off with a thigh injury, however, although his removal appeared more of a precaution with Sunday in mind. Better news was the captain, Scott Brown, making a return for the final 14 minutes.
