Rodgers hails Celtics ‘calmness and confidence’ after Rosenborg victory

Brendan Rodgers has praised the ‘level of performance’ of his Celtic side following their 1-0 win over Rosenborg in the Europa League.

The Norwegian outfit have been the whipping boys of Group B in the Europa League, failing to pick up a single point in their five games so far.

However, it wasn’t an easy game for Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic side, who had only picked up six points from their opening four games.

Speaking after the game, the former Liverpool and Swansea City boss was delighted with the calmness and confidence that his side displayed.

“To play to that level technically was a good insight for me, to see the calmness and confidence and how they all connected with the pressing,” Rodgers said.

“Even in the last couple of years, and going into that first League Cup final [against Aberdeen in 2016], I would say this is the best level of performance, probably because we have been together a bit longer and the players have gained confidence from winning trophies.

“We will prepare for a tough game of course but our aim is to win.”

The Hoops face RB Salzburg in their final group game, knowing they only need a point to progress to the knockout stages.
