"The players who have come in have been waiting a long time".

'I felt we were finding the spaces well and were getting into good positions moving forward.

Combined with their costly defensive lapses, Celtic offered little going forward, and they nearly fell three behind when Jean-Kevin Augustin had a fierce strike tipped onto the post by Craig Gordon after 65 minutes.

"They have had a really good start and we know Hearts is always going to be a hard team to beat", Lustig was quoted as saying by the Herald.

"I think my point before the last game was to have an opportunity to have been there and train at the stadium", said Rodgers. Salzburg have won both their games and I would expect them to win both matches against Rosenborg.

Kohli also scaled another magnificent record as he becomes the fastest batsman in terms of career-span to reach the 10,000- club. Tendulkar was the first batsman to get to 10,000 runs, making history against Australia on March 31, 2001 in his 259th innings.

Dallas , though, has a slot ace in Cole Beasley; 88.6 percent of his routes run this season have come from that position. The next two leading receivers are running back Ezekiel Elliott (25 catches) and tight end Geoff Swaim (19 catches).

"I think Brendan has his heart set on being the man to deliver the ten".

Celtic have been poor away from home in the group stages and beyond in European competitions in recent years but Rangnick, who will be without Emil Forsberg, Ibrahima Konate and Diego Demme, is expecting a tough tie.

"It's not just about the domestic league, you are working to qualify for European games and coming away to play big opponents".

Rodgers told "BBC Scotland", "We're still in with a great chance". They don't play typically kick and rush type of Scottish football.

"The drop-off in their squad is not a huge gulf from what is recognised to be their strongest starting 11 and the players they bring in", Levein said.

"I don't think he would ever say that publicly and nor do I think that he will really focus too much on anything other than ensuring Celtic get to eight this season, but the bottom line for me is that he is motivated and happy at his work".

Rangers winger Daniel Candeias believes they are destined to win a trophy this season. "We don't necessarily need a high victory but the most important thing is winning".
