It’s a feat Rodgers couldn’t achieve in his first spell as Celtic manager and he’s admitted it’s a “huge challenge” ahead to try and make it happen.

The Hoops are in Group E alongside Atletico Madrid, Lazio and Feyenoord.

A clash with Arne Slot’s Eredivisie champions kicks things off in Rotterdam.

Remarkably, it’s only the second time the sides have ever met.
