Rodgers pleased to progress

Brendan Rodgers is pleased with how his Celtic team is shaping up but feels there is more to come from his side after their Champions League win over Lincoln Red Imps.

First-half goals from Mikael Lustig, Leigh Griffiths and Patrick Roberts saw Celtic overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg and the Hoops had little trouble in seeing off their part-time opponents to complete a 3-1 aggregate win.

Next up is a long trip to Kazakhstan to face Astana in a Champions League third-round qualifier and Rodgers is hoping to add to his team before next week's game.

"There is no doubt we need one or two more in that I want to bring into the team so let's hope we can do something before that (window) closes tomorrow," Rodgers said.

"That would be the plan, hopefully we could do that and that would be a great boost to the squad."

Reflecting on Wednesday's win, Rodgers added: "I was very pleased with the first 30 minutes. I thought the crowd was incredible and the players felt that support.

"Overall I was pleased to get through, it certainly wasn't perfect, there is a way to go for us in terms of where I want us to be.

"But I am delighted with the attitude with the players, they scored three and their goalkeeper has probably stopped it maybe being double figures.

"But we are through and that is the most important thing.

"We have a game on Saturday (against Leicester) and then we will look forward to the game next week which will be another difficult tie on a plastic pitch but we will be ready for it."
