The Hoops went into tonight’s Europa League group stage tie knowing the needed three points to realistically keep alive their hopes of reaching the competition’s knockout phase, and they didn’t have to wait long for the opening goal.
Kieran Tierney pounced to fire them ahead on 11 minutes, and Odsonne Edouard scored the decisive goal in the 79th minute to secure a 2-1 victory – and leave Rodgers absolutely beaming.
Speaking to the media after the full-time whistle, the Bhoys boss was effusive in his praise of his players, as well as the club’s rapturous supporters:
What do you think of Rodgers’ comments? Is tonight the most impressive European display since he took the reins?
And how far can Celtic go in this year’s competition?
