Celtic will welcome Bayern Munich to Parkhead on Tuesday night in their fourth Champions League group match of the campaign, however, they will be without three for the fixture according to a match preview by BBC Sport. He still has bits of improvements to make but his quality, his will, his determination and his focus for a young player is outstanding and he loves playing for Celtic.

The Polish international has scored 10 goals in as many Bundesliga outings so far this season, but suffered a thigh injury during Bayern's 2-0 win against RB Leipzig on Saturday.

MF Thiago, N/R - Brought on in added time to allow Robben an adoring farewell from both sets of fans.

Rodgers' side were unlucky to come away with a defeat after a brave performance against the German champions, despite going 1-0 down in the first half.

French striker Moussa Dembele and Scottish fullback Kieran Tierney were the 2 main players clubs like Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal all came to scout, meaning Celtic risk losing the star duo in January or when the summer transfer window opens at the end of the season.

Sinclair has been a revelation since moving to Glasgow a year ago, scoring 24 goals in 54 games.

"It's too big a competition to say you are learning all the time". Dedryck Boyata was caught ball-watching as Sven Ulreich launched the ball forward, and Kingsley Coman, who had already look a threat, capitalised.

Celtic heads did drop after that, but not for long.

Yet, if searching for reasons that Rodgers' team fell agonisingly short of the draw their courageous efforts deserved then Dembele will probably curse himself that he could do no more than send a stubbed header into the ground after Forrest hung up an inviting cross for him at the back post as Celtic first pushed for an equaliser towards the interval.

Armstrong almost gave Celtic the dream start to the second half but his low, clipped shot was palmed wide by Ulreich.

Celtic kept up the pressure.

After taking a few minutes to get cleaned up, Martinez was praised by his manager Jupp Heynckes after the match.

Uncompromising as he may be, however, the 32-year-old remains one of his team's best passers, able to control the tempo of the play if given the opportunity.
