Classy Rodgers Reveals Text to Hearts Boss

According to Celtic boss Rodgers, beating RB Leipzig at home is "within Celtic's capabilities", and is a virtually must-win game if they are to progress through their Europa League group. So we look forward to seeing them.

"Where we are as a club, these type of games, this level of opponent, you want your best players available", he said.

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

"It's about going and performing and taking that confidence of going to play and not being frightened to make mistakes".

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

Celtic defender Mikael Lustig says that Hearts play simple but effective football under Craig Levein and insists that the Bhoys are expecting a tough game at Murrayfield on Sunday.

You play so many games and at certain times in the season that's going to happen so we'll just have to deal with it.

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.

Having been part of the the Hoops academy set-up to date, Rodgers made a decision to give Arzani a chance to impress with the first-team at Murrayfield instead of taking part in a reserves game against Partick Thistle.

"The team is slightly different to what it was last season", the former Scotland manager said.

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

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