Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has taken a swipe at tonight’s Champions League opponents PSG.

The French side are in a different league financially to their Scottish counterparts and that was shown when the teams met at Celtic Park in September, with PSG cruising to a 5-0 victory.

The Bhoys manager is of the opinion however that there is one aspect of the club which pales in comparison to Celtic – their history.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the Northern Irishman said “You can’t buy history. It is winning trophies and titles. If you think about PSG, I think everyone will agree it is arguably the most exciting front three in world football.

“But, to back that up, you have to win trophies and sustain that success over many games. In terms of big, iconic clubs, they have real history, support and a fanbase – all of that.

“Celtic, of course, has all that but we don’t have anywhere near the finances of a club like PSG.”

The Hoops turned in arguably one of their best performances of the season so far in their last Champions League match against Bayern Munich at Celtic Park but still lost 2-1.

Celtic are currently in third place in their Champions League group, three points ahead of Belgian champions Anderlecht in the race for European football after Christmas.
