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

It gives us a great chance but we know we have some work to do'.

Celtic host the German side next month in the second part of their double-header with a trip to bottom side Rosenborg to come before a game against Salzburg at Parkhead, where Rodgers believes they can claw back their hopes.

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

Lustig, who is poised to wear the captain's armband on Sunday due to the absence of Scott Brown, went on to claim that Hearts play simple but effective football and insisted that Celtic are expecting a tough game in the capital city of Scotland.

Red Bull Leipzig has been on a six-match unbeaten run since losing their opening Europa League fixture to Red Bull Salzburg. 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.

And the Celtic manager admitted: 'Jozo looks like he'll be struggling.

"It looks like this and Celtic Park will be decisive to finish second and qualify from the group".




Earlier this week, Compper said: "I'm fit and I train very well". So for us, the standard here is winning so we are there to win and to do it in a way that entertains our supporters. "So, yes, both teams are fighting for second spot in this group".

Leipzig have their own issues as Emil Forsberg, Ibrahima Konate and Diego Demme are all out.

On the contrary, Brendan Rodgers' double-treble feat has been thrilling to watch and has provided those of us in the media with reams of copy.

"They don't play typically kick and rush of Scottish football".

"The drop-off in their squad is not a huge gulf from what is recognised to be their strongest starting 11 and the players they bring in", Levein said.

Dominant in the Scottish top-flight for the last decade or so, Celtic fans would ideally have been wishing to be playing in the Champions League this season, but appears the Europa League isn't dampening their enthusiasm, as the video shows below.

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