  • Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers needs to secure a result to keep his side's Europa League qualification hopes on track

Brendan Rodgers has urged his Celtic players not to be frightened to make mistakes against RB Leipzig tonight.

"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.

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

"They have been working hard in training".

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers believes Hearts will not have an on-field advantage when they play in the Scottish League Cup semi-final at Murrayfield on Sunday.

Lustig, who is poised to wear the captain's armband on Sunday due to the absence of Scott Brown, went on to claim that Hearts play simple but effective football and insisted that Celtic are expecting a tough game in the capital city of Scotland.

Craig Levein's side previously played four home games at Murrayfield when their stadium, Tynecastle, was being upgraded last season.

He said: "I can't tell you if Celtic have played badly in Europa League or Champions League qualification, so I can't talk about their away record".

"We're playing against one of the top teams in Germany but we still have to show our way of playing and when we do that we know we can cause problems. So it's a great thing for the players to know that people are putting their hands in their pocket to come and watch them".

Rodgers gave full details of who is in with a chance of playing and who is definitely out when he addressed the media ahead of the match.

Winning silverware as soon as November can be a catalyst for teams to go on to more success as seen with Celtic during the 2017-18 season when they won an unprecedented double treble.

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