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

Oh Bhoys: A dejected Brendan Rodgers is all alone with his thoughts as he leaves the pitch at the Red Bull Arena after Celtic's defeat by Leipzig.

"We have a few other players". We trust in everybody in our squad and we're looking forward to this game. After the last time in Salzburg, okay we lost the game but I want to see a better performance.

Former Celtic striker John Hartson reckons Brendan Rodgers will spurn the advances of Premier League clubs if they offer him the chance to work South of the border again.

"It's about going and performing and taking that confidence of going to play and not being frightened to make mistakes". 'We'll have players that will come back and it's something well within our capabilities.

"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".

"The players who have come in have been waiting a long time".

CRAIG GORDON insists Celtic will just have to cope with the absence of some of their big stars against RB Leipzig on Thursday.

Celtic sit third in Group B, and trail RB Leipzig by three points, and also trail group leaders RB Salzburg by six. "So it's a great thing for the players to know that people are putting their hands in their pocket to come and watch them".

As the pilot slams on the breaks the Celtic fans then produce a sensational racket with most of the plane piling into a celebratory mood and as arms fly around from the seats the excitement for their Europa League clash with RB Leipzig reaches a crescendo.

"My experience up here of being in the semi-finals have been brilliant, the atmosphere and we have been able to make the final which has been great".

Rangnick said: "It looks like these two teams will be fighting for second spot".

Winning silverware as soon as November can be a catalyst for teams to go on to more success as seen with Celtic during the 2017-18 season when they won an unprecedented double treble.

"The way they play, you know it's quite simple football but it's worked really well for them".

Rangers winger Daniel Candeias believes they are destined to win a trophy this season.
