Tom Rogic’s Celtic has booked their spot in the knockout stage of the Europa League despite losing at home to Anderlecht in their final UEFA Champions League clash on Wednesday morning (AEDT).
Rogic came on at half-time at Celtic Park but could do nothing to prevent his side from going down, with Jozo Simunovic’s own goal giving the Belgians a 1-0 win.
While Celtic and Anderlecht both finished on three points in the group standings, the Hoops finished third due to a better head-to-head record.
French giants PSG topped their group ahead of German champions Bayern Munich.
Brendan Rodgers’ side now go into the draw for the last 32 of the Europa League, which will resume in February next year.
The draw for the knockout stage will be held next week.
Rogic and Celtic will look to bounce back to winning ways when they travel to Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League on Sunday night (AEDT).
