Celtic Defender Identifies Biggest Plus From Win Over RB Leipzig

Rodgers hopes it will be another famous European night at Celtic Park

Brendan Rodgers hailed Celtic's Europa League win over RB Leipzig as the best they have enjoyed at home during his two-year reign as manager.

Odsonne Edouard's dramatic victor, which arrived within a minute of Jean-Kevin Augustin cancelling out Kieran Tierney's opener, moved the Scottish champions level on points with the Germans in Group B of the Europa League.

Asked if it had been the best Celtic Park win since he took over in 2016, Rodgers said: "I couldn't argue against that if you look at the level of the opponent and our performance against that". How else to explain the relentless, frenetic performance Celtic produced to deliver a thrilling win against Bundesliga high-fliers RB Leipzig?

"We were much better and dominant in the second half". At 1-1, they responded straight away, had that belief to get forward and got that winning goal'.

'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.

"After we conceded the first goal, we didn't play very well", said disappointed Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick. This was a pressure game that we needed to win but you seen the positivity in the team.

The good news for Rodgers is that Kristoffer Ajer has returned to the fold in the last couple of weeks, and has regained match fitness ahead of the Livingston game.

"It was a fantastic victory and one that I'm very proud of", said Rodgers.

Having seen his side take their imperious domestic form into the European stage, though, Rodgers felt his players handled the occasion as well as he could have imagined.

"The players were absolutely brilliant and they so deserved to win the game", said Rodgers. But when you equalise when we did, you can not then concede again so quickly like we did.

"It was a very emotional game, our players fed off that and the supporters helped us to the victory".

Rodgers' side face Rosenborg in Trondheim in their next match on 29 November, with Leipzig travelling to face Salzburg.
