Brendan Rodgers says Celtic supporters helped drive team to Europa League win

Rodgers hopes it will be another famous European night at Celtic Park Rodgers hopes it will be another famous European night at Celtic Park

The Bundesliga side, who had beaten Celtic 2-0 at the Red Bull Arena last month, levelled in the 78th minute through striker Jean-Kevin Augustin but only a minute later the Hoops' French forward Odsonne Edouard restored their lead to take the Scottish champions on to six points in Group B and level with Ralf Rangnick's side, who have a better goal difference and head-to-head.

"As soon as I took the touch I could see Odsonne out of the corner of my eye running in but my first thought was "just shoot", said Christie, who put in arguably his best performance in a Celtic shirt.

"If we're to progress or have any opportunity to progress out of the group, it's a game we really have to win".

Bhoys supporters will be hoping their side can continue to ride that wave of positive energy, on what is a huge night under the lights at Celtic Park.

A defeat for Celtic on Thursday night would have spelled the end of the Europa League road.

Speaking ahead of the clash Rodgers said: "We're certainly in a better place than we were a number of weeks ago so the team's really confident and playing well, scoring goals, defensively strong". We were looking at each other and thinking that we had it in us to dig our heels in and get the result.

"We showed no fear, had plenty of aggression and brought our identity to the game". "We'll be ready to go again and everyone will have taken a massive lift from the result and the performance last night".

'Tonight was a proper win against a top-class side. We've seen the team returning to that in the last seven or eight games and it's nice to see we can do it not just domestically but against one of the best teams in Europe.

"It was a fantastic victory and one that I'm very proud of", said Rodgers.

"Tonight was a very emotional game, our players fed off that and the supporters helped us to the victory". We did that and I think we deserved it too. "There are two games to go and we have put ourselves back in the mix".
