Dynamo Dresden 1 Celtic 1: Gordon starts for Hoops

Craig Gordon made his first start for Celtic as the Hoops drew 1-1 against Dynamo Dresden in their friendly in Germany.

The former Hearts and Sunderland keeper, new manager Ronny Deila's only signing so far, was one of several changes to the side that started in the first-leg of their Champions League second qualifier against KR Reykjavik in Iceland on Tuesday night where the Scottish champions came away with a 1-0 win.

Captain for the day Kris Commons opened the scoring in the seventh minute against the German side with a drive from inside the box after being set up by striker Teemu Pukki.

However, the attacking midfielder, who scored 32 times last season, was substituted just before the break which may cause some concern ahead of the return game against KR Reykjavik at Murrayfield on Tuesday night.

Deila changed almost his whole side at the interval with the home team drawing level through striker Sylvano Comvalius in the 69th minute.
