Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers proud of Europa League spot despite Anderlecht loss

Celtic 0 Anderlecht 1: Hoops into Europa League as Jozo Simunovic own goal seals fate

CELTIC take on Anderlecht in the final fixture of the Champions League group stages with a place in the Europa League on the line.

'So there is a lot of work for us to do but you also have to give the players great credit because they were playing a better team than us tonight and they stuck with it, they stayed strong and they got the job done.

Celtic captain Scott Brown has said that Anderlecht played his side at their own game in the 1-0 Champions League defeat on Tuesday.

"I can already predict what's going to happen", he told Sky Sports. There are going to be much, much better teams in there than ourselves.

However, as he braces his side for Celtic's fast start, he says he will not be expecting his players to meet fire and fire.

"We didn't need to score early but after 1-0 we didn't really get big chances for the second goal".

And I think we all realised that.

"You can say we're going to try to score in the first five minutes - and then you lose a goal in the first five minutes and it will be doubly hard".

With PSG and Bayern Munich assured of the top two spots in the group heading into matchday six, Celtic had to avoid a three-goal defeat by Anderlecht on Tuesday night.

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.

Goalkeeper Craig Gordon said that the nature of the game, where Celtic knew that anything less than a 3-0 defeat would ensure progress, meant an unusual approach even when a goal down.

"So we need to be better than we were tonight but we have shown we can be better". But that's not our main goal.

The Hoops go into the game as the favourites but they need to get the three points at Celtic Park.

'Once we have qualified can we have European competition, of course we want the Champions League but we have to be realistic.

He said: "It was good to get the win".
