Celtic easily beats Anderlecht 3-0 in Champions League

01 October 2017

But of course, you come into the Champions League; I think people recognise this is a good side that is developing well but you come away to a club with a great history like Anderlecht, who got to the quarter-finals of the Europa League previous year, and to come and play to that level, to be as convincing as that, I think of course people recognise that as: "'Actually, they are a very good team'".

The Belgians have been in a bit of turmoil recently and have recently sacked their manager, however the Bhoys' less than stellar away record on their travels in Europe meant that a positive result was by no means a foregone conclusion.

Leigh Griffiths gave Celtic a first-half lead in the 38th minute courtesy of a touch of class from Kieran Tierney.

However, Rodgers played down the suggestion Celtic were now favourites to finish third in the group and secure European football in the New Year.

Five minutes into the second half, Celtic scored again when a cross by Patrick Roberts came off Anderlecht defender Kara Mbodji into the net, before Scott Sinclair made it 3-0 with a thumping shot in the final seconds.

Brendan Rodgers believes the roots of Celtic's long-awaited away win in the Champions League were planted previous year.

Despite Celtic being strong domestically, their Champions League form has been poor and they were defeated 5-0 by PSG two weeks ago.

While Brendan Rodgers' side are ruling the roost at home, they haven't always had the best of luck on the continent.

"You can see we are growing at this level, the three goals were fantastic and the boys deserve a huge amount of credit because it was a great performance, especially on the back of a tough game at the weekend".

"Naturally it takes experience, it takes time, and, takes that belief".

"We can be better".

'I thought defensively we were exceptional and I thought in spells with the ball we were very good'. "There is no easy opponent in the Champions League".
