Despite Bayern Munich defeat, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers to stick to game plan

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers will not resort to pragmatism despite suffering a 3-0 defeat by Bayern Munich in their Champions League clash at the Allianz Arena. Thomas Muller opened the scoring for the Bundesliga side in the 17th minute before right-back Joshua Kimmich headed in a second in the 29th minute.
Mats Hummels headed in a third six minutes after the break and although the Scottish Premiership champions threatened more in the second-half, it was a comfortable win for the home side.

Rodgers said “We decide how we play. There is nothing about being pragmatic for the goals we conceded. We didn't defend our box well enough when the ball came in. We could do better with those but I would rather lose a game playing the way we want to play and how we want to work as opposed to sat in and defending for 90 minutes and still lose, if that is the case. Myself and my staff and the players had a plan going into the game and there were lots of positives for us in the game and something to look forward to for the second game against them at Celtic Park.”
