Rodgers wants Celtic belief

13 September 2017 06:20:22 EST

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers feels his side need to improve their self-belief if they are to bounce back from their 5-0 hammering at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.

The Scottish Premiership champions were always going to be up against it when meeting the Ligue 1 big spenders and at 3-0 down at half time there was no coming back.

Neymar broke the deadlock before Kylian Mbappe doubled PSG's lead.

Edinson Cavani bagged himself a brace before an own goal from Mikael Lustig wrapped up a torrid night for the Hoops at Celtic Park.

Rodgers pulled no punches after the full-time whistle and feels his side must believe in themselves if they are to improve in the Champions League.

"You have to look after the ball and make it work for you and, first half, we didn't do that - we played like under-12s at times," Rodgers said.

"It is confidence, it's belief. We are obviously missing some decisive players that can help us at this level, but it is always going to be very, very tough. That is the reality."

Celtic now face a tough away trip to Anderlecht on 27th September as they go in search of their first points in the Champions League this season.

The Hoops are 14/1 to secure qualification from their group.
