Rodgers hopeful that Rogic will be fit enough to feature against Hearts

Rodgers hopeful that Rogic will be fit enough to feature against Hearts

"We'll have a look at Tom Rogic to see where Tom is at".

"You want your best players available". It's a low-grade calf strain. 'We'll have players that will come back and it's something well within our capabilities. It's just about how he reacts to what his issue was with his knee. We're managing Filip Benkovic so we'll see how he is over the next 24 hours. So we look forward to seeing them.

"We had quite good success against Celtic last season here (Tynecastle) because our game was all about running and energy".

'We have to look to the next game at home and look to win that - if we don't it becomes really hard.

Celtic slowly grew in confidence but were made to pay the price for poor defending with half an hour played.

"We have stabilised the team in recent weeks, we have been performing well and this gives them a chance to show how well they have been training". "That's what we're looking to do, perform well and then look at getting a result from that".

Tom Rogic could be about to hand Celtic a major fitness boost ahead of their Betfred Cup meeting with Hearts. We've got three points on the board but we always knew our home games would be vital for us and try to pick something up away.

The English left-winger still has excellent pace and trickery, but is struggling for game-time right now. "This is what these players have been waiting for, the opportunity to play and really experience what it's like to be a Celtic player".

Celtic are now third in their Europa League group, three points behind leaders Red Bull Salzburg.

'I felt there was a lot of positives from the game.

"It looks like this and Celtic Park will be decisive to finish second and qualify from the group". I thought we started the game very well.

Red Bull Leipzig has been on a six-match unbeaten run since losing their opening Europa League fixture to Red Bull Salzburg. "So whoever they bring in will all be good players".

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

"We don't think it will be an easy encounter".
