Celtic lacked bravery in Europa League defeat - Brendan Rodgers

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has said that the Hoops lacked bravery as they ousted by Zenit St Petersburg in the Europa League round of 32. The Hoops had an invaluable 1-0 lead from the first-leg of the encounter, but they could not make most of their possession at the Krestovsky Stadium.

Speaking after the game, Rodgers was disappointed by Celtic's showing on the road, and indicated that familiar defensive failings were due to their lack of aggression from the back which saw Branislav Ivanovic, DalerKuzyaev, and AleksandrKokorin find the scoresheet.


Celtic are set to take the fight to Bayern Munich at their home – the Allianz Arena. The game is slated for Wednesday October 18, and it would be the first time Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes oversees a UEFA Champions League game since lifting the title in 2013 with the German club.

Heynckes ended his Bayern coaching career on an excellent note years back when he did the treble. He won the Champions League for Bayern and helped form a stable side that Pep Guardiola inherited. The Spaniard would go on to spend three successful years before exiting. Guardiola did not have as much success as his previous club Barcelona, however, the Catalan manager won the league the three years and helped the club to the Champions League semifinals three straight times.


Current Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was given three full seasons to lead Premier League giants Liverpool to a status befitting of a club that has won 19 First Division titles.

Since the glorious six years of Rafa Benitez and the subsequent washing down of quality players out of Anfield, Liverpool have been involved in a circus of disappointments often meeting new lows in recent times.

For the first time in 3 years, Celtic qualified to the Champions League

After claiming an aggregate victory of 5-4 against HapoelBe’erSheva, Celtic FC just barely managed to secure a spot in the group stages of the Champions League which is something that they had not been able to do for the past few seasons.

Celtic was pitted in group C of the current season of the Champions League and this group consists of: Barcelona, Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach. These are all of the opponents that Brendan Rodgers and his squad will be facing off as they fight for a top spot that would allow them to advance into the knockout phase of the European competition.

Celtic are still in contention to qualify for the group stages

Celtic are still in contention to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League and manager Ronny Deila says that they will complete the task when they take on Stjarnan.

The Icelandic club are one of the opponents standing in front of Celtic. The Scottish club managed a 2-0 victory in the first leg. As a result, even a draw will see them into the next round. However, there are concerns that the opposition will gain an advantage on home turf since they are used to playing on the plastic pitch used here. Deila, though, is unconcerned about the artificial pitch.

Celtic FC sealed their 23rd league victory of the season

Celtic Appoints Deila As New Manager

Despite almost having no experience of Scottish football in his career, Celtic appointed 38-year-old Ronny Deila as their new manager. After taking over from Neil Lennon, the Norwegian has big boots to fill. However, he is confident that he will be able to live up to the high expectations at Celtic. In his first press conference, Deila revealed that he will now be looking to get the club to more success in the future. However, he does not plan to do so by spending money on new players. Instead, he wants to fine-tune the mentality of the existing players so as to take them to the next level.
