CELTIC boss Brendan Rodgers has challenged his side to step up in tonight's crucial Europa League clash with RB Leipzig.

Sinclair has been a key figure for the Scottish giants since he joined in 2016 and played a major role in the double-treble success, but it's gone downhill dramatically for him in the past few months.

"I don't care if Newcastle are looking at him and thinking that he might be the man if they part company with Rafa Benitez or if Leicester are thinking that he might be a better option than Claude Puel", Hartson writes in the Evening Times.

Rodgers believes that irrespective of the result against RB Leipzig, his side, who have scored 10 goals in their last two Premiership matches, will still go into Sunday's League Cup semi-final against Hearts at Murrayfield with optimism.

"We have one or two issues but it's okay, we have a number of young players who have been training very hard and working hard to have the opportunity to play".

Combined with their costly defensive lapses, Celtic offered little going forward, and they nearly fell three behind when Jean-Kevin Augustin had a fierce strike tipped onto the post by Craig Gordon after 65 minutes.
