"They were better than us tonight but our aim was to get through to Europa League and come third in the group, that would be a massive achievement and we did that".

'They deserve a huge amount of credit for that - but it was a poor performance. "That showed towards the end of the game where we weren't looking to get back into it but were defending a defeat, which is a odd situation to be in".

"Rodgers really has to have a hard think about how he'll set up with his players in the Europa League".

'The context of the game probably affected our performance, especially in the first half, with Anderlecht having to chase the game to make up the goal difference. We couldn't keep the ball. I was thankful to get in 0-0 at half time and second half we were better.

"We've got to have a touch of realism - there are going to be much better teams in that than ourselves", he said.

"Some of our players have a long way to go before they can call themselves players at this level". But we've shown over the course of this campaign that we can be better'.

Armstrong has been a mainstay of the Celtic senior side under the charge of Rodgers and was one of their best players last term as they won the domestic treble without a single defeat.

Onyekuru who has registered eight goals this season will be looking to add to his tally when they welcome Sporting Charleroi to Constant Vanden Stock Stadium for their next league match on Sunday.

'We have done absolutely fantastic. We have done wonderful, we were fourth seeds and not many of them have got into third place. We have been able to do that.

"Tonight is an example of the long, long way to go and the gap there is between the teams at the very top end of European football and even those in behind that".

"But we have a lot of work to do at this level, but we can look forward to the Europa League in February".
