Celtic qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League midweek with a 2-1 win over Lazio in Rome, which was also their first ever victory on Italian soil.

They completed a good week with a 2-0 victory over Motherwell to keep them top of the table.

French striker Odsonne Edouard netted a 19th-minute opener at Parkhead.

Mohamed Elyounoussi slipped a pass into the box for James Forrest and after Gallagher challenged, the ball fell to Edouard and the 21-year-old guided it into the corner of the net past Gillespie for his 13th goal of the season.

Motherwell defender Richard Tait scored an own goal in the 54th minute to leave the home side ahead of Rangers.

Steven Gerrard’s side kept up pace with their rivals thanks to their own 2-0 victory against Livingston.

The opener came in the 32nd minute when Rangers got their hosts on the back foot when Connor Goldson won the ball in the air from Matija Sarkic’s goal kick.

Scott Arfield broke well and got the ball back from Morelos before sliding a first-time pass into the path of Joe Aribo, who shot high into the net.

Morelos got the second in the 52nd minute after running on to a ball down the left channel from Barisic.

The Colombian, who may have been half a yard offside, out-muscled Hakeem Odoffin and hit a shot through the defender’s legs and just inside the far post.
