Odsonne Edouard tapped in Celtic's winner just a minute after Leipzig had equalised

Celtic kept their hopes of reaching the Europa League knockout phase alive with a dramatic victory over RB Leipzig at Celtic Park.

Knowing defeat could eliminate them with two games to go, Kieran Tierney put Celtic ahead early on.

Leipzig's Jean-Kevin Augustin equalised with a header late in the second half but within a minute Odsonne Edouard struck to give Celtic the win.

Celtic sit third in Group B, level with Leipzig, but trail on head-to-head.

They travel to Trondheim to face Rosenborg next on November 29, before finishing at home to Salzburg a fortnight later.

In a frenetic finish, Kevin Kampl struck the bar for the visitors and then blazed over when clean through on goal to ensure the Scottish side secured a vital victory.
