Best team won - Rodgers

Best team won - Rodgers

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers admitted to being beaten by a better team as Anderlecht secured a 1-0 victory at Celtic Park.

However, the Hoops still qualified for the Europa League ahead of their Belgian opponents despite Jozo Simunovic's second-half own-goal.

"The best team won, they were better than us," Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "Our aim at the beginning of this competition was to get through to the Europa League stage, so there's immense pride at doing that.

"It's hard to feel that after you've lost, but we got the job done," he added. "We have a lot of work to do before we can affect that level, but we're through and we can look forward to that in February."
