RB Leipzig 2 Celtic 0: Poor defending costs Bhoys

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

"We're playing against one of the top teams in Germany but we still have to show our way of playing and when we do that we know we can cause problems. We know if we're going to have any aspirations of coming out of the group then it's a game we have to win".

Rodgers believes that, irrespective of the result against RB Leipzig, his side, who have scored 10 goals in their last two Ladbrokes Premiership matches, will still go into Sunday's Betfred Cup semi-final against Hearts at Murrayfield with optimism.

"I was open and clear with him that in that time a lot of players had come in and have jumped ahead of him in the queue at centre-half so his game time has been and probably will be very limited".

Celtic sit third in Group B, and trail RB Leipzig by three points, and also trail group leaders RB Salzburg by six. I don't feel it's the same this year, I think the players are a little bit more cerebral and understand more about the defensive shape than maybe we did last season.

RB Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick believes Celtic will provide a tough test for his side.

Rodgers said: "Jozo looks like he'll be struggling".

"I think Brendan has his heart set on being the man to deliver the ten". Salzburg have won both their games and I would expect them to win both matches against Rosenborg.

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".

'We had a big chance through Odsonne Edouard after seven minutes and then had a period of 15 minutes where we did well.

Reports last week suggested the Australian could return to Manchester City by the end of the year should he fail to earn minutes with the first-team, a claim Celtic have strongly denied. They don't play typically kick and rush type of Scottish football. They have technically strong players and they always try to find solutions by playing technical football.

"They like to press and build from the back using their wing backs".

"We don't think it will be an easy encounter".
