Rodgers: we'll turn it round back home

  • Former Celtic striker Hartson predicts Rodgers will reject Premier League advances

Celtic's Europa League hopes took another bruising in a 2-0 defeat by RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena.

While it is Celtic's first meeting with RB Leipzig (who were only formed in 2009), they have a poor record in Germany, having never won there in 10 attempts.

Rodgers is missing a few first team players with Scott Brown, Tom Rogic, Youssouf Mulumbu and Leigh Griffiths all out injured.

James Forrest is suspended and Leicester loanee Filip Benkovic is a doubt.

Hampered by injuries or suspension to several of his top players, the Northern Irishman brought in Cristian Gamboa, Jozo Simunovic, Eboue Kouassi, Ryan Christie and Lewis Morgan.

"Some of our play was very good but key moments in the game we have to defend better and unfortunately we didn't do that".

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers believes Hearts will not have an on-field advantage when they play in the Scottish League Cup semi-final at Murrayfield on Sunday.


He said: "No matter the result tomorrow we'll go into the game at the weekend with confidence and looking to reach another final".

"I felt we were finding the spaces well and getting in good positions".

Speaking about whether he is just as hungry as he was when he first came through the door at Parkhead in 2016, Rodgers said: "Listen when you work at the top clubs there is only one standard and that's winning and that is what you are judged by".

"So I am looking forward to see the guys who will come in".

"We have one or two issues but it's OK, we have a number of young players who have been training very hard and working hard to have the opportunity to play".

"We have stabilised the team in recent weeks, we have been performing well and this gives them a chance to show how well they have been training".

The home side cruised their way through the second half to leave the Scottish champions in third place with three points from nine, with leaders Salzburg on nine and RB Leipzig second with six.
