RB Leipzig 2 Celtic 0: Poor defending costs Bhoys

"We have seen enough tonight to know that we can beat them at home", said Rodgers. We started very, very well, imposed our style on the game.

The Daily Record reports that Brendan Rodgers is hopeful that the player can feature against Hearts. But hopefully he has a big chance of playing.

Germany global Marvin Compper - who the Bhoys signed from Leipzig - has played just once since his arrival after struggling with fitness issues and is unlikely to be considered for a starting place.

"I don't care if Newcastle are looking at him and thinking that he might be the man if they part company with Rafa Benitez or if Leicester are thinking that he might be a better option than Claude Puel", Hartson writes in the Evening Times.

Rodgers, always keen to quash any possible distractions before games, rowed back from that sentiment yesterday when asked if there was any issue with the staging of the game in terms of an advantage for Hearts.

Celtic slowly grew in confidence but were made to pay the price for poor defending with half an hour played.

"We have stabilised the team in recent weeks, we have been performing well and this gives them a chance to show how well they have been training".

Around 20 injured in Rome escalator incident
Italian media have reported that more than 20 people were injured when the escalator leading down to the metro station collapsed. Contrary to initial reports, the Russian fans were not jumping and celebrating on the escalator when the collapse happened.

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.

"From tonight's performance, I believe it's something that's well within our capabilities". Silverware is the currency Rodgers says his club can take to the bank in the face of any debits sustained on the European front and during their patchy league form this season.

"He (Gamboa) felt a tightness so we will just have to look at it and see tomorrow but again, when you come off with that type of injury it can be a major doubt".

I think Jozo will struggle.' Rodgers does not have his problems to seek ahead of Sunday's encounter, with a number of key players unavailable.

He said: "Celtic are a good team".

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