Rodgers: Our performance was top class


Brendan Rodgers hailed his side’s performance as "top class" following their thrilling 3-3 Champions League draw with Manchester City at Celtic Park.

The home-side took the lead in the third minute when Moussa Dembele slotted in from close-range after James Forrest cut-back a Scott Sinclair free-kick.

Fernandinho equalised for the away side before Raheem Sterling hit into his own net after a well-struck shot from Kieran Tierney took a deflection off the England International.

Sterling rectified his mistake minutes later after David Silva played a wonderful ball to the winger before he slotted past the helpless Craig Gordan.

Dembele hand his side the lead two minutes into the second-half with a spectacular over-head kick before Nolito pounced on a loose ball after Gordan saved from Sergio Aguero.

"I can't criticise the team, but there's always elements we can be better in. We were brilliant, the pressing and the energy. Every time we went forward we looked like we could score.” Rodgers told BT sport.

"Apart from the Barcelona game these players have been operating at a high level this season. Now, to do it against that team, it was a magnificent performance.

"How we defend is what we've been working on. All my teams have played with that intent. We have players that are developing and evolving all the time.

"Tonight, how they played and performed was top class. That will give them confidence going forward."

The Hoops will look for their first win in this season’s Champions League when the face Borussia Mönchengladbach on October 19.
