Brendan Rodgers insists he must rotate Celtic squad due to hectic schedule

5:55                                            Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers says winning the Scottish Premiership is tough

The 19-year-old Arzani - who made three substitute appearances for Australia at the World Cup in Russian Federation - is expected to complete his transfer from A-League side Melbourne City to Manchester City before being farmed out to the Parkhead club for an extended loan period.

The deal comes as Tom Rogic opened his account for Celtic after just eight minutes of the new Scottish Premiership season, scoring the first of Celtic's goals in their comprehensive 3-1 victory over newly-promoted Livingston.

Robinson's consolation gave Livingston some cheer as Celtic move on to their Champions League qualifier against AEK Athens on Wednesday night.

"He is, I believe, finalising his deal with Manchester City and in talks with ourselves to come in, as a possibility", Rodgers told reporters. It was really big in Sweden so the first few days were a bit blurry and then I went to Greece with my family for a week to get a rest.

The 68-year-old Celtic great Danny McGrain unfurled the league flag before the game to loud cheers and Celtic looked focused and hungry enough to continue their domestic dominance, nothwithstanding the late blip.

"It's always hard against an honest team like Livingston who are sat in".

"We played the game with good energy and good tempo".

Hafeez angered by demotion in PCBs central contract
On Monday, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had announced new central contracts for the upcoming year 2018-19. Further, pay raises will also be granted in year 2 and 3 of the agreement.

"Our only disappointment was the goal at the end, we failed to adjust to Olivier being injured".

"Leigh Griffiths was excellent when he came on".

Rodgers hailed the performance of his players on the back of a tough midweek game against Rosenborg.

Lustig has conceded that ideally Celtic would be away from home for the opening leg of the tie but has called upon his team-mates to engineer a result that will give the Parkhead side a decent cushion to take with them to Athens.

"It was tough previous year and the teams around us are strengthening so we need to make sure we are at it in every game because we know it is going to be tough".

"It was a real test and we will have learned a lot from today". It's just trying to harness it and build on it.

"I feel good. The extra break helped me and I feel ready now to come in and help the team".
