The former Manchester United man came off the bench after Balazs Megyeri saw red for bringing down Gokdeniz Karadeniz on 73 minutes.

The Northern Irishman made a diving stop to keep out Natcho's spot-kick and Olympiacos held out for a precious away win in a match played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, some 500 miles from Kazan.

Carroll's moment of glory came on 76 minutes, just five minutes after David Fuster struck the game's only goal, firing low through a sea of legs after Rubin failed to clear a corner adequately.
