Craig Gordon: This is why we can win in Champions League
By Emma Sanders
Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon believes they can produce a shock result against Borussia Monchengladbach after better preparation for the game in Germany.
Brendan Rodgers’ side were completely outdone by Monchengladbach earlier this month, hard to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
The Scottish League leaders have been written off by most in the Champions League, but Gordon says the preparation they have done with Rodgers since their defeat has taught them new things going into the crunch clash.
“In the debrief after the game we watched bits of it back and the manager has pointed out areas we need to improve upon for this time around and we’ll be looking at that again now,” said Gordon, as reported by the Daily Record.
“What have we learned? We’ll see. I don’t want to say too much. We are certainly going into the game as underdogs but within our group of players we know what we are capable of.

“Hopefully we can learn from that quickly [the defeat] and show we can do better this time around.”
Celtic have been in fantastic form since their European defeat over two weeks ago, recording victories against Rangers, Aberdeen and Ross County.
They currently sit in a commanding position at the top of the Scottish Premiership, with a nine-point lead over rivals, Rangers and have already booked their place in the League Cup final.
Domestically, Celtic are leagues above the rest but are expecting to be faced with a different challenge in Germany on Tuesday evening.
Monchengladbach have won just once since defeating Celtic, losing out to German hotshots Bayern Munich and drawing 0-0 against Eintracht.
