Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers says all the players in his squad are under consideration for Wednesday as the Hoops look to advance to the next Champions League qualifying stage, Herald Scotland report.

The Scottish Premiership champions suffered an embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Gibraltan side Lincoln Red Imps in the away leg, with a number of players underperforming in hot conditions.

The Hoops still remain big favourites to advance to the next round, yet they can’t afford to put in another lacklustre display at Celtic Park this coming Wednesday evening.

Those that featured in Gibraltar let themselves down, and now Rodgers hasn’t ruled out making a number of changes for the second leg as he says players who impress in training will get a chance regardless of age.

“Every player is under consideration for Wednesday. If I see enough in training and in the game, irrespective of age, they will get a chance,” the Northern Irishman told Herald Scotland.

Celtic have a big squad of players and in particular Rodgers has an abundance of midfielders at his disposal.

Finding the right balance will be key for the Glasgow side, and in terms of performance the manager will no doubt be expecting quicker movement and sharper passing when in possession.

Celtic warmed up for this game with an impressive 2-1 friendly win over Bundesliga side Wolfsburg at the weekend.
