Rodgers finds positives

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers felt there were still positives on show despite the heavy defeat at Paris St-Germain.

The Hoops crashed 7-1 in the French capital having previously conceded the same number of goals to Barcelona last season, although their leader believes there was no real comparison to that performance this time around.

"In a strange way, I thought there were lots of good moments for us," Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "We came off after Barcelona and it was a tough one for us because we didn't give anything in the game.

"Whereas tonight, we made a great start, which gave us belief," he insisted. "You could see that in how we were playing, defending strongly and had a real good focus and real good quality in the game.

"The lessons for us: we can keep the ball better, defend better at set-pieces but you also have to admire the sheer quality of PSG."
