Celtic will be boosted by RB Leipzig’s striker absentees

Brendan Rodgers

The Scottish champions realistically needed to win to keep qualification hopes alive and Odsonne Edouard's late goal secured the victory to put Celtic level with RB Leipzig on six points, although the Germans have a better goal difference and head-to-head record.

Celtic travel to Trondheim to play Rosenborg on November 29 before hosting Salzburg, who have maximum points, in their last game, but Rodgers believes the Hoops fans kept them in with a fighting chance of qualifying for the knockout stages. "We'll be ready to go again and everyone will have taken a massive lift from the result and the performance last night". We were looking at each other and thinking that we had it in us to dig our heels in and get the result.

A defeat for Celtic on Thursday night would have spelled the end of the Europa League road.

Domestic football will take precedence now as Celtic head to Livingston on Sunday afternoon, with Christie keen to head off on global duty having helped the Parkhead side return to the top of the league for the first time this season.

'There are a number of times when this group of players, if it has gone against them a little bit, the game has gone away from us.

"I think tonight was a proper win for us against a top-class side sitting high in their domestic league and everybody knows Leipzig's quality". We've seen the team returning to that in the last seven, eight games and it's nice to see we can do it not just domestically but against one of the best teams in Europe.

Rodgers insists his players were inspired by another big European night at Celtic Park. So it's a fantastic victory and one I'm very proud of'. 'The most important thing was to win and win well. We earned the right to play our game after that'. "There are two games to go and we have put ourselves back in the mix".
