Celtic's Europa League hopes hit by RB Leipzig defeat

Celtic's Europa League hopes hit by RB Leipzig defeat

Though unable to take part in Celtic's Europa League clash against Red Bull Leipzig on Friday, the 19-year-old could be set to be included in the Hoops side to take on Hearts in the Scottish Cup semi-final on Monday. We trust in everybody in our squad and we're looking forward to this game.

"Where we are as a club, these type of games, this level of opponent, you want your best players available", he said.

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.

Celtic slowly grew in confidence but were made to pay the price for poor defending with half an hour played. "We know if we're going to have any aspirations of coming out of the group then it's a game we have to win".

Lustig, who is poised to wear the captain's armband on Sunday due to the absence of Scott Brown, went on to claim that Hearts play simple but effective football and insisted that Celtic are expecting a tough game in the capital city of Scotland.

"This is what these players have been waiting for, the opportunity to play and really experience what it's like to be a Celtic player".

The result lifts second-placed Leipzig three points clear of Celtic in Group B after three matches, while Salzburg are a further three points ahead of the German club following their 3-0 victory over Rosenborg on Thursday.

"We're playing against one of the top teams in Germany but we still have to show our way of playing and when we do that we know we can cause problems".

Rodgers has been quick to downplay Arzani's lack of opportunities to date and most recently said he has been impressed with the teenager's progress. "So it's a great thing for the players to know that people are putting their hands in their pocket to come and watch them".

It must have been a major kick in the teeth for the wide man to be omitted for the European clash when he saw the team-sheet and it's going to take something remarkable to get his season back on track now.

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