Brendan Rodgers is looking for Celtic to forget their Champions League heroics to focus on three points against Dundee today.

Confidence around Parkhead is sky-high after Wednesday's epic 3-3 draw with Manchester City at Parkhead.

However, in the last game before the international break, Rodgers wants his side to cement their place at the top of the Premiership.

"The players are coming off such a high but if you want to have that winning mentality, it doesn't matter where you go, you have to get the job done," said Rodgers. "The (City) game is gone. We put in a great performance, it was a great night, but it is on to the next game now.

"The focus and intensity has to be away at Dundee. Like all teams up here, they are never easy games, they are going to make it very tough.

"We will respect them like we did Manchester City. It is always about us, how we impose our style and intensity into the game and if we do that we always have a chance of winning games."
