Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers praises 'absolutely outstanding' performance following Anderlecht rout

The Belgians have been in a bit of turmoil recently and have recently sacked their manager, however the Bhoys' less than stellar away record on their travels in Europe meant that a positive result was by no means a foregone conclusion.

Olivier Ntcham thread a delightful through ball to left-back Kieran Tierney, who found the Scottish striker from inside the six yard box in the 38th minute.

We are just concentrating for now on a great performance and a brilliant result against Anderlecht.

Three goals, from Leigh Griffiths, Patrick Roberts (albeit channelled into the net by the Anderlecht defender, Serigne Mbodji) and Scott Sinclair, were ample reward for activity at one end of the field while, at the other end, Craig Gordon and his defenders achieved the Hoops' first clean sheet at this level since September 2012.

Celtic's two games against Anderlecht could prove crucial in their bid to extend their European season past the group stages of the Champions League.

"We can be better than we were tonight but the players deserve a huge amount of credit, on the back of the game at the weekend (the 2-0 win over Rangers), which was a high intensity game".

"It takes experience and time and it takes belief".

"Defensively we were exceptional in terms of our pressing and trying to get the ball back", Rodgers continued.

"I think people recognise this is a good side that is developing well".

"Now we are playing Anderlecht, it is not like we are playing against the likes of Neymar but I come from Belgium, I know how big Anderlecht is".

They will need to when they face Bayern Munich in a few weeks time.

"As a team then we were very, very good defensively".

Anderlecht and Celtic were defeated in their opening games by the Group favorites, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint Germain respectively and are expected to fight it out for the third spot and a place in the UEFA Europa League.
