New Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers during the press conference

Brendan Rodgers has said at his press conference today that he is expecting a tough test for his Celtic team in their match against Borussia Monchengladbach tomorrow.

Much of the build up to the game has been focussed on the injury crisis that Monchengladbach are suffering from.

The Bundesliga side are without four key players for their trip to Glasgow, but Rodgers insists that his side cannot be complacent.

Celtic go into the match knowing that three points would strengthen their bid for European football in 2017.

Realistically, the Bhoys look likely to be battling it out for third spot in their Champions League group, which would give them entry into the knockout stages of the Europa League.

At the moment Celtic sit in the coveted position, following their 3-3 draw with Manchester City, but Monchengladbach would leapfrog Celtic with a win tomorrow.

However, a Celtic victory would leave The Foals needing to get a point against either Barcelona or Manchester City to stand a chance of catching up with Rodgers’ side in the group.
