Celtic defeated Rennes 3-1 last night to top Group E and advance to the last 32 in the Europa League last night.

Neil Lennon's side are now unbeaten in five Europa League games and top the group with a game still left to play, meaning Celtic will avoid the Champions League dropouts in the next round.

Ex-St Mirren and Sunderland loanee Lewis Morgan's second Celtic goal and a Ryan Christie strike catapulted the hosts into a commanding half-time lead before Mikey Johnston added to the tally with a superb one-two finish.

Adrien Hunou's glancing header provided a late consolation for the French side but that did nothing to dampen Celtic fans' spirits, with scores of fans taking to Twitter to express their delight at their team.
