GALLERY: Celtic crush Imps to progress in Champions League qualifiers
They ran out 3-0 winners at Celtic Park21:50 Wednesday 20 July 2016, 21:50 20 Jul 2016
Celtic put their humiliating defeat to part-timers Lincoln Red Imps behind them this evening with a comfortable 3-0 victory over the Gibraltan side.
Brendan Rodgers was in charge of his first competitive game during that 1-0 defeat last week, but early first half goals from Mikael Lustig, Leigh Griffiths and Patrick Roberts sent them on their way to victory.
The result will come as a relief to Rodgers, who was forced to tell media last week that there was "no embarrassment" in his team of full-time professionals losing to opposition a team which features two policemen and a shipping agent.
