Celtic take a 1-1 scoreline in at the break against Maribor in their Champions League qualifier.

Celtic have taken a 1-1 draw in at half time against Maribor in the first leg of their Champions League qualifier in Slovenia.

After being handed a second chance to enter the group stages of the competition thanks to Legia Warsaw's expulsion, the Scots seized their opportunity early when Callum McGregor netted.

The Bhoys carved open the home side's defence thanks to Stefan Johansen, and McGregor was on hand to turn the ball home after Jo Inge Berget's effort was saved on six minutes.

However, the Slovenian side were back in it on 14 minutes when Damjan Bohar coolly slotted past Craig Gordon in the Celtic goal.

McGregor thought he had a European brace five minutes later, but his header was cleared off the line, before Gordon made an important stop to deny Maribor on 25 minutes.
