Moussa Dembele is fit to lead the line against Anderlecht this evening as Celtic look to book their place in the Europa League.

The Parkhead side will parachute into Europe’s second tier tournament so long as they avoid a defeat of three goals or more – having beating the Belgians by that margin in Brussels back in October.

Demebele was injured as Celtic successful defended the Betfred League Cup but is fit and ready to take his place against Anderlecht.

“Moussa is fit. He has trained and came through it and Nir Bitton is too so we only have Patrick Roberts out which is brilliant for this time of year.”

And Rodgers has also insisted that he wants to round off the Champions League campaign this season with a home win.

The Hoops won against Anderlecht on the road but Rodgers would like to give the Hoops support a home win in the tournament – the first of his regime at Celtic Park in the group stages.

Achieving that would not only take Celtic into the Europa League but would also give them six points from Group B – not a bad yield considering the company they have kept.

“We want to win for the supporters,” said Rodgers. “That is our message going into the game. We have been in two campaigns now and we want to get a home victory.

“We have had good performances against top teams and obviously of course we have learned a lot of lessons and valuable lessons.

“We had a great result out there in Anderlecht. We played very well and won. Now it would be nice to finish off our Champions League campaign with a great night and a great result.

“When you are Celtic and come into this level of competition it is brilliant to be in it and bring that level of player to the supporters. They don’t get the chance to see that level. It also allows them to gauge the level of European football. They look at Borussia Moenchengladbach, see the quality of them.

“But it would also be nice to get three points and a win and celebrate. That is something we would really like to do for them tomorrow. We have got great confidence, we are playing well and we will look to use that home advantage tomorrow.

“For us to get a victory away at Anderlecht previously was important for our confidence. Tactically and technically, the players were excellent in the last home game against Bayern Munich. In the coming years, we have to see some of these games through so we can get a result on the back of a good performance.”

If Celtic do success in consolidating that Europa League spot, Rodgers doesn’t expect it to have any real impact on the availability of his January transfer budget.

“We are very clear in what we want to do,” he said. “We are really happy with the squad of players but you need to strengthen when you are in these moments.

“There is still top quality we want to bring in. If we can afford and it’s available, that’s what we’ll look to do.

“It will help budget-wise, of course, although I haven’t really thought about that. I’m the football man.

“You are getting some extra games which you may not have budgeted for. So I’m sure revenue-wise it will help. If you can go on as far as you can in the tournament, it’s all the better for you.”
