Classy Rodgers Reveals Text to Hearts Boss

Australian midfielder Daniel Arzani was handed a training session with the Celtic first-team on Tuesday as he gradually starts to work his way into Brendan Rodgers' plans.

Tom Rogic is missing with a knee issue, while Felip Benkovic's fitness is being montiored ahead of the game.

The home side cruised their way through the second half to leave the Scottish champions in third place with three points from nine, with leaders Salzburg on nine and RB Leipzig second with six.

"For us to have an opportunity to take a positive result out of the game, it's really about performing to a high level for us".

"We're playing against one of the top teams in Germany but we still have to show our way of playing and when we do that we know we can cause problems". If we are going to have any aspiration of getting through the group, it's a game first and foremost we have to win. I don't feel it's the same this year, I think the players are a little bit more cerebral and understand more about the defensive shape than maybe we did last season.

And the Celtic manager admitted: 'Jozo looks like he'll be struggling. Salzburg have won both their games and I would expect them to win both matches against Rosenborg. These games will be very important.

"But I do know Brendan Rodgers from Celtic and his spell at Liverpool and we know how he likes his teams to play".

You play so many games and at certain times in the season that's going to happen so we'll just have to deal with it.

"The thing that benefits us is the amount of supporters we will have in the stadium because of the change in venue and kick-off time", Levein said.

"They don't play typically kick and rush of Scottish football".

Steven Naismith is the biggest danger to Celtic's hopes of beating Hearts at Murrayfield, says Parkhead winger James Forrest.

"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.

"They like to press and build from the back using their wing-backs".
