Watch: Tom Rogic Beats Roy Carroll From Distance As Celtic Coast Past Linfield

Watch: Tom Rogic Beats Roy Carroll From Distance As Celtic Coast Past Linfield
By Mikey Traynor Updated

We may have sadly been denied a Dundalk vs Celtic clash in the next round of Champions League qualifiers after the Lilywhites were beaten in extra time by Rosenborg on Wednesday night, but Brendan Rodgers' men will now be making the trip to Norway after successfully navigating past Linfield.

The Belfast side were in Glasgow hoping for a shock result after losing the first leg 2-0 last Friday, but those hopes were soon dashed as Scott Sinclair thumped home from close range after just four minutes.

The pick of the goals came from Big Tam Rogic as the Aussie did what he has a tendency to do; kick the ball from far away into the bottom corner of the goal. Roy Carroll in between the sticks for Linfield had no chance.

Sinclair would then bag his second of the game shortly after, a firm middle finger to the absolute muppets who racially abused him before the trip to Belfast last week. Stuart Armstrong then provided the cherry on top with a strike in stoppage time to make it 4-0.

New boy Olivier Ntcham looked lively throughout, which was no mean feet as Linfield camped 11 men behind the ball for the most part, but Rodgers will be happy with his side's professional performance over two legs.

Judging by what Rosenborg showed against Dundalk, it would be a huge shock if Celtic were not able to get the job done when they meet Nicklas Bendtner and his pals.
