Moussa Dembele hands Celtic fitness boost ahead of Anderlecht tie

Moussa Dembele hands Celtic fitness boost ahead of Anderlecht tie

And I think we all realised that.

Instead, he is happy for Anderlecht to be more patient and stay in the game for as long as possible.

On the other hand, Anderlecht have only once this season beaten a side as comprehensively, when they put four past KV Kortrijk without reply last Sunday.

"They were better than us tonight but our aim was to get through to Europa League and come third in the group, that would be a massive achievement and we did that".

Vanhaezebrouck knows that if his charges are to pull of an upset and qualify, they will need everything to be in their favour against Celtic.

"We will try to play our own game, we've been at our best when we've done that and not sat back and tried to defend leads". We were poor in our ball possession, we couldn't keep it and needed too many touches.

The Parkhead manager admitted the result was a wake-up call for certain members of his squad as he said: "Some of our players have a long way to go before they can call themselves players at this level". "That showed towards the end of the game where we weren't looking to get back into it but were defending a defeat, which is a unusual situation to be in".

Celtic have now gone eleven games in the Champions and Europa League group stages without a home win.

Mani Shankar Aiyar apologizes for 'neech aadmi' remark against Modi
Let them keep calling me " Neech " we will not respond. "I beg to the people of India, please let them be". He asked whether PM Modi would dare to act similarly. "This person is a " neech aadmi " (low-minded)".

Admitting they're still miles away from Europe's elite, however, Rodgers called for realism in the Europa League.

'We have done absolutely incredible.

"We were fourth seeds coming into this group and we've managed to finish third". We have been able to do that.

"We got the job done but obviously we have a lot of work to do before we can affect that level".

Celtic sealed their qualification to the Europa League in spite of a 1-0 defeat at home to Anderlecht on Tuesday night.

"I only heard them occasionally but we should have scored a second goal to make them panic a little bit more". We have to be realistic.

'We've done that. So next year it doesn't get any easier, if anything it'll become more hard'.
