Hoops book Champions League place

Published Add your comment

Goals from Gary Hooper and Victor Wanyama saw Celtic ease past Helsingborg 4-0 on aggregate and into the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since the 2008/09 season.

Neil Lennon's men took a 2-0 lead into the second leg of their play-off against the Swedish side and Hooper's close-range strike on the half-hour mark, albeit from what looked like an offside position, effectively ended the contest.

Two minutes from time Wanyama headed in a Kris Commons cross to put gloss on a fine victory and confirm the Hoops' place in tomorrow's draw in Monaco.
