However, Mykhaylo Mudryk’s 29th-minute equalizer saw the two teams split the spoils in Poland.

Mudryk started his professional career with Shakhtar and the 21-year-old winger admitted it would be difficult to turn down an offer from Premier League club Arsenal.

Talk to CBS Sports in August, the Ukrainian said: “I think everyone dreams of the Premier League. It’s hard to say [who his preferred move is] but Arsenal are a very good team, a very good manager, I like the way they play.

When asked if he would move to the Emirates Stadium, he said: “From my side, I can’t say no. [to Arsenal]. But the transfer is not just my decision.

Ange Postecoglou’s men survived further pressure before reasserting their superiority after the break.

However, substitute Giorgos Giakoumakis missed the best of a series of opportunities for Celtic to secure their first European victory of the campaign.
