Rodgers: Celtic must get better with ball before Astana qualifier
The Scottish champions lost in a penalty shootout to Leicester City on Saturday.
Brendan Rodgers is happy with Celtic's preparations ahead of next week's Champions League qualifier against Astana, but says they must "get better with the ball."
The Scottish champions drew 1-1 with Leicester City in a friendly match on Saturday, losing to last season's Premier League winners in a penalty shootout.
Rodgers praised his players for the performance, particularly young centre-back Eoghan O'Connell, but wants more from his side in Kazakhstan.
"I've watched their games and it looks a much better surface, it looks a fast pitch over there," the Northern Irishman told Celtic's website.
"I understand the difficulty of the game with their results in the Champions League there last year.
"We know it's going to be a tough game but our preparation is going really well. We are improving every day, with our fitness levels and our football ideas, but we need to get better with the ball, that's for sure, but that's improving and I'm happy."
