"I take a step back and we are sitting top of the league after 12 games and we have had to deal with a lot of injuries so all credit to the boys and we will get back to our normal selves next week".

RB Leipzig beat Celtic 2-0 in the first ever competitive meeting between these two sides in the last round of matches.

Celtic have won just two of the last 16 Europa League games (D5 L9), both 1-0 home wins against Rosenborg and Zenit St Petersburg.

Chris Sutton has urged the Celtic players to prove their mettle in Europe after constant domestic success over the last few seasons.

"I felt much better in the second-half, I know we lost two goals but at least we were in the game and had opportunities".
