Could do little about Hooper's first goal and was not tested until he saved Forrest's shot only to see the rebound bounce off Kombarov and end up in the net.
Correctly shown a red card when he clipped Hooper, having been beaten for pace. Struggled to deal with the lively striker all evening.
Didn't make much of an attacking impact and could do little to stop the combined efforts of Mulgrew, Commons and Samaras on the left.
Had a difficult game but he was hung out to dry somewhat given that Celtic had so much space in which to counterattack.
Unlucky to score the own goal that drew Celtic level. Attacked with intent down the left but did not receive much service out wide.
The centre to Spartak's play in midfield, roaming laterally in central midfield to dictate their attacks but also showing an occasional ability to break into the box. Provided a superb pass from which Ari set up Emenike's opening goal.
D. de Zeeuw
Did well to square the ball for Emenike to equalise but was often overrun by the Celtic counterattacks.
Struggled to find space in the hole from which he could influence proceedings.
Kept possession neatly but the Spartak defence was frequently exposed on the counterattack.
His pace caused real problems to the Celtic defence. As early as the opening couple of minutes he had sped away from Ambrose and he got behind Wilson to set up Emenike's equaliser.
Scored two of the easiest goals of his life, tapping into an empty net on two occasions after good work from his team-mates.
Really should have dealt more convincingly with an Ari shot that he parried straight to De Zeeuw, although the deflection on the ball did make it more difficult to claim.
Worked hard in the tackle and also drifted out to the left flank to provide an attacking threat. His cross led to the second goal and capped off a determined all-round display.
Rampaged down the right flank to great effect from full-back, providing the cross from which Hooper gave Celtic the lead. Spartak struggled to pick up his runs from deep.
Slow to react to balls that landed behind him, with the likes of Ari and Emenike able to use their pace to get into the penalty area to overturn Celtic's early lead.
Reliable at left-back and also supported the attack with some timely tackles and passes forwards before supplying an excellent cross for the winning goal.
Caught on his heels when Kallstrom delivered the pass behind him from which Ari set up Emenike's equaliser.
Made some important tackles that not only broke up Spartak's play but also sprung counterattacking opportunities, as evidenced in the build-up to Hooper's opening goal.
Played in a central position and kept things ticking over in possession, playing some good passes to spring counterattacks.
Floated dangerously on the left flank and provided a terrific cross for Hooper to score, but he was offside. Played a part in Celtic's second goal with a smart dummy. Didn't get close to goal himself until they needed it most, heading home Izaguirre's cross to seal the three points.
Showed his predatory instinct to give Celtic the lead with a deft touch to deflect home Lustig's low cross. Was marginally offside when he added another with a well-taken header, which was correctly ruled out, but then forced Insaurralde into a red card challenge and laid the ball off for Forrest to shoot for the second goal.
Replaced Insaurralde at the back after the Argentine had been sent off but could not prevent Celtic from creating more chances against the 10 men.
Replaced the quiet McGeady as Spartak looked to retake the lead but did not see so much of the ball due to Celtic's numerical advantage.
