Brendan Rodgers' side took the lead with seven minutes remaining of the first half, courtesy of Leigh Griffiths, but the strike was notable for the build-up before the final finish, tremendous teamwork on display from Celtic on the way to taking the lead.

The match data also paints a portrait of Celtic's superiority.

The Belgian side were in better form this weekend, winning 2-1 against Waasland-Beveren, and Boyata, who was born and raised in Brussels said: "We know we are not going to play against easy teams in our group".

'I thought defensively we were exceptional and I thought in spells with the ball we were very good'.

"It is a huge jump in level into the Champions League, but I think it is pretty clear to see how the players are developing and improving".

It was was a hugely significant result for Celtic as they had failed to register a win in the group stages last season, the first under Rodgers.

The win underscored Celtic's great start in the Scottish league, where it leads the table and is fresh from a victory over its Glasgow rival, Rangers.

Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb played with Trevathan at Kentucky and said he's never known him to be a dirty player. It was good to see Rodgers and Packers pour it on the Bears with another touchdown pass shortly after.

"When Celtic are in the Champions League, everybody expects them to just get beat by whoever they're up against", said Wright.

But for the time being everyone at Celtic Park should take heart from the fact the victory would have had Europe sitting up to take notice.

"We have tried to do our best to analyse and study Anderlecht".

Scott Sinclair scored a breakaway third in added time to confirm Celtic's second away win in the competition - the first was five years ago against Spartak Moscow - and their first clean sheet away from Parkhead.

"To come away and deliver that type of performance, they deserve all the plaudits they get".

"We had worked the ball really well from side to side, and then he made an absolutely sublime pass to get Kieran Tierney in behind. We might get a wee bit of credit somewhere along the line".
