Ange Postecoglou’s side suffered a shock loss to the Norwegian champions to leave the Hoops European campaign in disarray

Celtic have a mountain to climb as they travel to Norway to face FK Bodo/Glimt in the second leg of their Europa Conference League play-off tie.

The Hoops will have to turn around a two-goal deficit on the artificial surface at the Aspmyra Stadion after suffering a 3-1 defeat at Parkhead last Thursday.

The result ended a 17-match unbeaten run stretching back to November but Celtic bounced back to winning ways after grinding out a 3-2 win over Dundee to remain in pole position in the Scottish Premiership table.

Greek striker Giorgos Giakoumakis celebrated his first hat-trick for the club to ensure the Glasgow giants surpassed a century of goals across all competitions this season.

However, Celtic must score at least three goals if they are to beat the Norwegian champions on aggregate.
