    I was thinking that too during the game. One of the reasons we all give KT, Benkovic and Forrest pass marks is that they were brave on the ball and in their movement. Too many players seemed scared and a lot of that is belief.

    KT just back. Simunovic in who isn't comfortable on the ball. Lustig early knock..

    3 of our back 4 no 100% and Simunovic isn't a starter either normally. Add in a keeper who screams uncomfortable, a really strong side pressing up towards almost our own byline, and it's easy to see why we didn't have the belief, we're hesitant and just no on our own game..

    Midfield, Rogic isn't the good defensively and was his worst game in a Celtic jersey, by far, to the point I still think he was injured. Christie our best player going off when we got a foot hold when Broony came on second half and seemed fairly comfortable at that point..

    Obviously they got in and behind and took the lead but too many off it, 2/3 of our big player's missing before and during and up against a good side..

    I think that result in the long run will do us good. Given a bit of a lesson but still managed to get through. January coming up and strengthens Brendan's argument for real quality to come in and give us a boost going on and for the knockouts..

    This is Brendan biggest test come January window. He failed get quality he wanted in summer. The whole 18 million off dembele money should be made available to him to sign 3 quality players and sell boyata to balance the books if he not going sign new contract.
    He looked so frustrated on Thursday night. How easy we made it for Salzburg. We made him look better than what they are.
    We couldn’t keep ball or pass it in first half
    We in front our own fans.

    Brendan Rodgers wants Celtic to sign TWO strikers in January
    By Neil Cameron

    CELTIC manager Brendan Rodgers wants to sign two strikers in January to cope with the absence of Leigh Griffiths.


    The club's top scorer is out of football for an unspecified period as he deals with "multiple personal problems" which leaves Celtic with only Odsonne Edouard as a senior centre-forward.

    Rodgers has been promised significant funds to spend next month and with the previous two transfer windows disappointing for the club, the manager said that can't be allowed to happen again.

    "There’s no doubt that we might need two because we wanted three strikers," he said. "We know we can’t go through the number of games we have and at the intensity at which we play with the same striker. We will definitely look at that. It’s always been a focus but this narrows our focus.

    "It’s about availability. January is a very hard window in which to get players in. But we will definitely have to reinforce."

    Rodgers admitted that he would consider a loan deal but would prefer getting in someone on a permanent basis as he is stilling missing Moussa Dembele who left for Lyon in August.

    "We have to look at whatever is available really," he said. "It’s hard because if a team have four strikers and they play with a front two they probably don’t want to lose any of them in case they get an injury and are down to three so it’s just going to be about availability."

    Rodgers paid tribute to troubled Griffiths who scored the first goal of the Europa League campaign when he came off the bench to grab a late winner against Rosenborg in Glasgow.

    "Leigh has played his part, absolutely. He set us on the road," he said. "All the goals were important. All the victories added to the nine points.

    "Rosenborg showed that they are a good side too going to Leipzig and getting the point there. It was a tough group with two Champions League teams in Leipzig and Salzburg."

    He done this last season and for some reason he’s doing it again.

    He gets a good run going, winning games comfortably and scoring loads of goals.

    Then he decides to change the tactics for basically no reason and it causes us nothing but problems. He’s doing the same thing this season after finally getting us out of our rut.

    Obviously we’ve got injuries but the way we’re set up today is madness needs to sort it or we’re looking likely to lose this game.
