Former Celtic striker Hartson predicts Rodgers will reject Premier League advances

Brendan Rodgers removes the fear factor from Celtic ahead of Europa League meeting with RB Leipzig

You play so many games and at certain times in the season that's going to happen so we'll just have to deal with it.

"He (Gamboa) felt a tightness so we will just have to look at it and see tomorrow but again, when you come off with that type of injury it can be a major doubt".

Former Celtic striker John Hartson reckons Brendan Rodgers will spurn the advances of Premier League clubs if they offer him the chance to work South of the border again.

Rodgers, whose side have three points from their first two fixtures, challenged those fringe players who will come in to make their mark and, in the first of a double-header against the German side, he is looking for a better performance after their 3-1 defeat to Salzburg in their last European outing. If we are going to have any aspiration of getting through the group, it's a game first and foremost we have to win.

'I've seen enough to know we can win the game at home, ' the Celtic boss insisted. So we look forward to seeing them. It's a great opportunity for them.

"They have had a really good start and we know Hearts is always going to be a hard team to beat", Lustig was quoted as saying by the Herald.

Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick believes the two sides are playing for second place in their Europa League section.

The drawing comes on the heels of a near-record $1.5 billion Mega Millions drawing earlier this week. New York Lottery officials say the winning ticket was sold at West Harlem Deli at 2040 5th Ave.

"But I do know Brendan Rodgers from Celtic and his spell at Liverpool and we know how he likes his teams to play".

"The way they play, you know it's quite simple football but it's worked really well for them".

"I think it's going to be a really good occasion, at a handsome and iconic stadium, playing at Murrayfield, the place will be packed".

"The drop-off in their squad is not a huge gulf from what is recognised to be their strongest starting 11 and the players they bring in", Levein said.

Rangers winger Daniel Candeias believes they are destined to win a trophy this season.

Reports last week suggested the Australian could return to Manchester City by the end of the year should he fail to earn minutes with the first-team, a claim Celtic have strongly denied.

"We don't think it will be an easy encounter".
