Qualifying For The Europa League A Massive Achievement - Brendan Rodgers

Anderlecht finished in last position and are out of Europe.

However a Jozo Simunovic own goal was enough to see the Hoops end their Champions League campaign with a defeat, although they managed to avoid a heavy enough defeat to ensure their spot in the Europa League after Christmas.

Unseeded in Monday's draw the Parkhead side now face possibility of a last 32 clash with Atletico Madrid, CSKA Moscow, Arsenal, AC Milan or Lazio.

"They were better than us tonight but our aim was to get through to Europa League and come third in the group, that would be a massive achievement and we did that".

'They deserve a huge amount of credit for that - but it was a poor performance.

He told the Sunday Post: "We need to go and stamp our authority on this game and not just sit back and defend that 3-0 lead". "They will come to attack and look for a victory but that's also what we want". Not too many. He wasn't over the top.

"Second-half we were better, we were able to stem the flow and be a threat".

Some of our players have a long way to go before they can call themselves players at this level.

"But to overcome the three-goal difference to continue, everything has to be ideal and we also need all the luck in the world", he admitted.

Celtic have now gone eleven games in the Champions and Europa League group stages without a home win.

'We have to have a touch of realism.

"So we are going to have to be ready because the start will be possibly devastating".

'We have done absolutely wonderful.

"We have done unbelievable, we were fourth seeds and not many of them have got into third place".

"The main thing was that we did what we set out at the start of the group to do and we've got to the Europa League".

'What we have to do is try to somehow bridge the gap.

"There have been a few occasions when he's been unhappy with us".

'Once we have qualified can we have European competition, of course we want the Champions League but we have to be realistic. "It's a great accolade and hopefully he's got many more ahead of him".
