"They were better than us tonight but our aim was to get through to Europa League and come third in the group, that would be a massive achievement and we did that". The players could not play quickly enough and needed five or six touches on the ball.

"We will try to play our own game, we've been at our best when we've done that and not sat back and tried to defend leads".

Vanhaezebrouck knows that if his charges are to pull of an upset and qualify, they will need everything to be in their favour against Celtic.

"We're used to being at home, keeping the ball and having a lot of possession but Craig has just told me the passing stats and it's not great".

"Second-half we were better, we were able to stem the flow and be a threat".

"Maybe some of players felt they have a long way to go before they can call themselves players at this level".

"But he did remind us that the bigger picture was to qualify".

Admitting they're still miles away from Europe's elite, however, Rodgers called for realism in the Europa League.

"There are going to be much better teams than us, we have to be clear on that". We were fourth seeds in this and over the Champions Leauge there won't be too many of those who have jumped up to third place and gone through. For that they deserve a huge amount of credit.

"However we've managed to do that we'll be happy once the dust settles".

'Once we have qualified can we have European competition, of course we want the Champions League but we have to be realistic.

The only teams to have beaten Celtic by three goals or more this season are Paris Saint-Germain - who did it twice - and Bayern Munich, indicating the scale of the task facing the Belgians. "It's a great accolade and hopefully he's got many more ahead of him".
