Will have been disappointed to concede last-gasp goal to Ajax sub Lasse Schone.
LUSTIG (8) Got some joy on the right-hand side as he got forward at times. Couple of decent deliveries into the box and defensively was solid. Has become one of Celtic's most consistent performers at this level.
AMBROSE (7) Relatively solid showing from the defender. Always keen to play the ball out and he was assured and composed for the bulk of the evening.
VAN DIJK (8) Booked for his part in the shenanigans which went on in the build-up to Forrest's penalty. His chance to shine against his fellow countrymen and his display would have been watched with interest by Louis van Gaal.
IZAGUIRRE (6) Quick to help out Forster with one clearance after the keeper had denied Serero. Got forward and defensively coped after a jittery spell in the first half.
FORREST (7) Kept his head when all around were losing theirs. Excellent penalty on the stroke of the interval to give Celtic the lead. Still doesn't quite look back to full strength after recent virus but a vital contributor last night.
KAYAL (8) Deputised for the suspended Scott Brown. Outran Viktor Fischer for one excellent - and timely - intervention to get the ball back to Forster as Ajax broke forward from Celtic set-piece. Icing on the cake was his goal to put Celtic two goals up. Off to standing ovation.
MULGREW (7) Teamed up with Kayal in the middle of the park and worked his socks off as Celtic tried to contain a vibrant three-man Ajax midfield.
SAMARAS (8) Put the usual energy and effort into his shift on the far left. Guilty of trying to do too much but was a hugely influential figure on the flank, both going forward and tracking back.
PUKKI (7) Fluffed super chance when Lustig put an early ball into the box across his path. Out of tune with Stokes at times but couldn't be faulted for effort.
STOKES (7) Was tripped as he tried to shuffle past Stefano Denswil just inside the box to give Celtic a vital penalty. May feel he could have done better with one long ball over the top from Samaras but decent input into the game.
LEDLEY (4) Took over from Kayal as Celtic saw out the victory.
BITON (2) Replaced Lustig and got straight red card after silly studs-up lunge on Serero.
BALDE (3) On for Pukki as Celtic saw out four minutes of added time.
