Even though Celtic hasn’t won in two Champions League games, according to Kenny Dalglish, the Scottish champions are set to kick in the winning door and secure the victory they so much want.

It is well known that it has been ten years since Celtic last experienced victory in a Champions League group stage encounter at Parkhead.

The elite club championship in Europe has produced zero results in its first two Group E games. Although Dalglish believes Celtic had some fortunate situations in both contests.

Dalglish thinks that Celtic’s reduction to nine men following a 2-0 loss to Feyenoord in Rotterdam on Matchday one was definitely the result of poor refereeing against Feyenoord. Gustaf Lagerbielke and Odin Thiago Holm were sent off.

Then, on matchday two against Lazio, the Serie A runners-up from the previous season, Rodgers’ team suffered terrible bad luck when they allowed a 96th-minute goal to give the Italians the victory in Glasgow. This was just moments after Honduran winger Luis Palma thought he had won the game with a beautiful low drive but it was overturned by VAR.

“I thought the referee in Feyenoord was out of order,” claimed Dalglish. It wasn’t one of his finer performances, in my opinion.

Celtic struggled to field a team for the opening match against Feyenoord, but the official made an odd choice by giving Lagerbielke a second yellow.

“They had a small amount of bad luck against Lazio, but that’s the level you play at. It was disappointing to lose one in the very last second. In addition, Celtic had a goal disallowed because of a little offside.

It was simply touched by Daizen Maeda. If he misses it, it will still go to the same spot and be inserted by Luis Palma.

“At the Champions League level, that is the main focus. Consider the recent Celtic Rangers game at Ibrox, where a foul was called that led to Kemar Roofe scoring.

“That decision could just as easily have gone the other way.”

Dalglish, though, is adamant that with Rodgers in charge of Celtic, it is only a matter of time before the tide swings in the favor of his former teams and that the razor-thin margins that have caused them to fail far too frequently at this level would soon be translated into marginal gains.

Celtic have received zero points from their first two games, according to the three-time European Cup champion with Liverpool in 1978, 1981, and 1984. “It’s fine margins everywhere,” he added. Celtic must find a way to at least qualify for the Europa League.

“They hit the post in the first half of the Champions League matchup against Real Madrid last year. The team was performing brilliantly.

“By the time the hour arrived, they had nothing left, and Real Madrid triumphed over them. RB Leipzig was faced with the similar situation in Germany.

Brendan will undoubtedly produce results. We’ll have to wait and see if they’re good ones or not!

Dalglish is also aware that Celtic’s preparations were severely hampered by an injury jinx that struck several of their central defenders just before the start of the Champions League tournament.

He acknowledges that he admires Liverpool goalkeeper Nat Phillips, who is on loan, and that he will need to adjust to playing for a team that completely controls the ball.
