Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was delighted with his team’s 3-0 win over Lincoln Red Imps in their Champions League second leg qualifier.

The Scottish champions will now face FC Astana of Kazakhstan in the next round having progressed 3-1 on aggregate against the minnows from Gibraltar.

Rodgers praised the team for their application but admitted his still needs to improve for the next stage of the competition.

“Overall, 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 delighted with the attitude of the players.”

“How they took the game right from the very kick-off and, as I said, they scored three and their goalkeeper probably stopped it being double figures, but we are through and that is the most important thing.”

Rodgers also revealed he is hoping to add two new signings before Thursday’s midnight Champions League signing deadline for the next qualifying round.
