Brendan Rodgers believes Celtic at their peak can be a match for anyone in the Europa League. The Hoops are gunning for a spot in the last 16 when they face Zenit St Petersburg in Russia tonight. Rodgers had described his team as underdogs ahead of the crunch ties with the Russians. But an almost flawless first-leg performance has convinced Rodgers his men could go toe to toe with any side left in the competition when at their strongest.
Celtic crashed out of the Europa League after a nightmare loss to Zenit , reports Craig Swan in St Petersburg. Brendan Rodgers and his troops were eliminated after the Russians turned over their 1-0 first-leg deficit to advance to the last 16 of the competition with a comfortable 3-0 win. Poor defending and weak goalkeeping from Dorus De Vries handed Zenit pair Branislav Ivanovic and Daler Kuzyaev goals before the interval and striker Aleksandr Kokorin finished the job on the hour.
Olivier Ntcham has backed Celtic to stick by their attacking principles and go for it in Russia. And the French ace believes in-the-mood Moussa Dembele can be the player to fire the Hoops past Zenit St Petersburg and into the last 16 of the Europa League. Brendan Rodgers and his team jet-out today for the second-leg crunch in a strong position. Callum McGregor’s winning goal last week in the opening clash in Glasgow has given the Scottish champions an advantage to defend in the Baltic port.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
