Celtic got their first Europa League win of the season as they beat Ferencvaros 2-0 at Celtic Park.
Having lost their opening two games in Group G, Celtic needed a victory to keep their qualification hopes alive.
They had to wait until the second half to make the breakthrough, with Kyogo Furuhashi scoring in the 57th minute and David Turnbull adding a late second after Callum McGregor saw a penalty saved.

Celtic took the lead on the counter-attack as Jota played in Kyogo to score. McGregor saw a penalty saved shortly afterwards but Turnbull made sure of the win from close range.
