Two Australians progress in UEFA Champions League

Tommy Rogic (Celtic) and Tommy Oar (APOEL) are through after their clubs completed aggregate wins this morning in UEFA Champions League qualifiers - but Alex Gersbach's side is out of the competition.


A tense tie between Scottish giants Celtic and Norway's Rosenborg was settled by a James Forrest goal in the 69th minute.

Caltex Socceroo Rogic was introduced from the bench shortly afterwards to help see out the victory.

His Caltex Socceroos team-mate Alex Gersbach watched on as an unused substitute for Rosenborg.


Meantime, Tommy Oar's APOEL FC overturned a 0-1 first leg deficit to beat FC Viitorul 4-0 on the night and 4-1 on aggregate.

The former Brisbane Roar attacker who played for Australia in their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign, was an unused substitute as the Cypriots moved through at the expense of their Romanian opponents.

The scoreline was inflated by three goals in extra-time after the tie was locked at 1-1 on aggregate after 180 minutes.
