Tierney: Celtic’s win over Leipzig a big boost for Europa League hopes

Celtic defender Kieran Tierney believes they now have a realistic chance of reaching the Europa League knock-out phrase

The Scottish champions secured a vital 2-1 win over RB Leipzig at Celtic Park on Thursday following goals from Tierney and Odsonne Edouard.

The result leaves Celtic tied with second-place Leipzig on six points with two games left, albeit behind on goal difference.

“We have given ourselves a fighting chance going into the last couple of games,” Tierney told Sky Sports.
