Daniel Arzani earns Celtic promotion after Brendan Rodgers intervention

Celtic without five key players for Red Bull Leipzig clash

The Croatia Under-21 global was stretchered off with an ankle injury during the Bhoys' 2-0 Europa League defeat to RB Leipzig on Thursday evening.

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.

But Hoops boss Rodgers said: "There were a lot of positives from the game".

"I felt we were finding the spaces well and getting in good positions".

Compper left RB Leipzig to join Celtic in January this year, but has only made one appearance for the Bhoys and has not made single matchday squad his season under Brendan Rodgers.

Australian midfielder Daniel Arzani was handed a training session with the Celtic first-team on Tuesday as he gradually starts to work his way into Brendan Rodgers' plans.

"It's key coming into these games that we think about performing well".

CRAIG GORDON insists Celtic will just have to cope with the absence of some of their big stars against RB Leipzig on Thursday.

"The players who have come in have been waiting a long time".

The home side cruised their way through the second half to leave the Scottish champions in third place with three points from nine, with leaders Salzburg on nine and RB Leipzig second with six.

Rangnick said: "It looks like these two teams will be fighting for second spot".

Should Rodgers decide he doesn't want to risk pairing two of his younger players at the back, he does have a couple of alternatives.

Having been part of the the Hoops academy set-up to date, Rodgers chose to give Arzani a chance to impress with the first-team at Murrayfield instead of taking part in a reserves game against Partick Thistle.

Celtic are a good team.

"They like to press and build from the back using their wing backs".
