Senior player must be axed: Three things learned from Celtic loss against Anderlecht


Celtic’s Champions League campaign ended in disappointment as the Hoops fell to a 1-0 defeat to Anderlecht in Glasgow on Tuesday night.

The Bhoys needed to avoid a four goal loss to qualify for the last 32 of the Europa League and this target was achieved, but the performance in the game was very poor.

The Hoops seem paralysed by fear as Anderlecht passed the ball around with style, you would never know they had no points in the Champions League up to this point.

Brendan Rodgers made two changes at half-time and the performance improved in the second-half, but a Jozo Simunovic own goal was enough to win the match for the Belgian side.

The Hoops will have to up their game dramatically or their Europa League stay after Christmas will be a very short one with some tough names in the draw.
