Already leading 3-0 from the first-leg in Northern Ireland, Celtic wrapped up the tie with a 2-0 victory at Celtic Park on Tuesday.

In other matches, Sheriff hammered Sutjeska 5-0 to progress despite being held to a home 1-1 draw in the first-leg, while Skenderbeu needed extra-time to seal a 1-0 win over Neftci.
