Celtic Legend Hails Win Over Anderlecht

Dedryck Boyata

Leigh Griffiths gave Celtic a first-half lead in the 38th minute courtesy of a touch of class from Kieran Tierney.

BRENDAN Rodgers had plenty to smile about after Celtic's 3-0 win in Belgium last night, not only in creating his own piece of history, but after seeing his side produce a performance that could guarantee European football in to next year. For a Scottish team to come away, get a 3-0 victory and keep a clean sheet at this level is obviously a big achievement.

"We will try to play the game we play at home when we are away from home", said Rodgers, in hope of a favourable conversion rate in this particular Eurozone. I think, over the past 12 months, you can see the improvement.

"When Celtic are in the Champions League, everybody expects them to just get beat by whoever they're up against", said Wright.

Anderlecht's interim boss Nicolas Frutos stood on the sidelines frustrated as Rodgers' side withstood everything the Belgian champions could throw at them before Sinclair scored a breakaway third in added time.

But for the time being everyone at Celtic Park should take heart from the fact the victory would have had Europe sitting up to take notice. The three goals were absolutely fantastic and the boys deserve a great amount of credit.

"We did very, very well".

Nigerian forward, Henry Onyekuru, and his teammates in Anderlecht will earn £35,000 each if they defeat Scottish Champions, Celtic in Wednesday's UEFA Champions League Group B game in Brussels.

"But when you come away to a club with a great history like Anderlecht, who got to the quarter-final of the Europa League past year, then it's a step up". They are off to the best possible start.

The defender was released in behind by Olivier Ntcham's incisive pass and fed a ideal low cross from the left to the far post, where Griffiths was waiting to tap in the opener.
