BRENDAN Rodgers is looking for Celtic to move on from their Europa League exit when they return to Ladbrokes Premiership action at Aberdeen tomorrow.

Celtic travelled to Russia earlier this week with a 1-0 lead in the last-32 clash against Zenit St Petersburg, but the Scottish champions capitulated in Thursday's second leg as they were beaten 3-0.

Celtic arrived back in Glasgow yesterday to resume their quest to win back-to-back domestic trebles with a top-flight clash against their nearest challengers in recent years, and Rodgers is refocused for the trip to the Granite City.

"Any game after a European game is always difficult," said the Northern Irishman.

"The league in the main is difficult, they are all difficult games. So that's what we will prepare for and we are looking forward to it.

"Within a week we've had an outstanding performance and then a not so good one.

"The best way is to get back on to the pitch again and get playing.

"We will work on certain aspects in our training and look to hopefully get the three points.

"We are now out of that [Europa League], we will learn our lessons from this year and now we can concentrate solely on the domestic front which we are really excited about."

Goalkeeper Dorus de Vries is also looking for Celtic to get back on track at Pittodrie.

The Dutchman said: "Of course there is disappointment on Thursday night but looking at the team we have got, it is really a good team, great talent and hungry players, so we are looking forward to Sunday now.

"If you look at the progression from last year, when it was the Champions League then out of Europe before Christmas.

"This season, it was the Champions League again and qualified to play European football after the winter break.

"We need to improve on that for next year and I am sure we will because the players will keep on improving."

Meanwhile, Derek McInnes wants his Aberdeen players to dare to dream as they look to grab their first win in 10 attempts against Celtic.

His side have not beaten Celtic since Ronny Deila's Celtic were toppled at Pittodrie back in February 2016.

The Ladbrokes Premiership leaders return to the Granite City tomorrow but McInnes wants his men to stride out believing they can become the latest side to upset Brendan Rodgers's men.

Aberdeen were beaten at Hibernian last week but McInnes is confident that 2-0 defeat has been forgotten about.

"It will be a test of character as Celtic test you more than any other team," he said.

"But I think it's important we have a strength, a confidence, an attitude that shows we expect to get something from the game.

"You need to go on the pitch believing that will be the case.

"Last week's second-half performance was a surprise to myself and in complete contrast to what we've been getting of late.

"I think the players we have here are always keen to win, always keen to perform and I think they recognise we let our standards drop a wee bit last week.

"But now we're ready to get back to winning ways, hopefully."

Celtic are also looking to respond after seeing their Europa League ambitions ended by Zenit St Petersburg on Thursday, losing 3-1 on aggregate in the last-32 after a 3-0 defeat in Russia on Thursday.

"Brendan sets his team up perfectly well at Parkhead and gets a brilliant result in the first leg," McInnes added.

"But the manager can't then be responsible for a free header in the box or his goalkeeper not doing better at the second goal.

"The dynamic of the game changed totally with those two goals.

"Zenit are a classic counter-attacking team and they could then be the team they wanted to be because they were gifted two goals.

"So you can over-analyse a performance too much. Celtic had 60-odd per cent of the possession and were totally dominant of the ball.

"They probably just didn't have that cutting edge that they normally have."

Winger Niall McGinn says his old side have dropped a level on last term's Invincibles campaign.

"There have been a few performances this season where they have dropped points," McGinn said.

"They haven't been as consistent as last season.

"But we know they have a squad of very good players and they can rotate when they want to.

"We know if we turn up and give a good account of ourselves, get a bit of luck and Celtic have a bit of an off day, we're definitely capable of winning."
