The defender was celebrating his side’s second goal of the game, scored by Frederik Gulbrandsen, when he went down clutching his head.

Referee Ruddy Buquet briefly checked on the player and will likely include the incident in his match report.

Brendan Rodgers’ side lost the contest 2-1 but qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League regardless, as a late equaliser from Rosenborg away to RB Leipzig stopped the Germans from overhauling Celtic in the Group B table.
