CELTIC boss Brendan Rodgers has refused to be riled by Byaern Munich supremo Karl Heinz Rummenigge’s comments about Robert Lewandowski.
The Bavarians’ star striker told the local press he would be fit for the Champions League crunch at Parkhead tomorrow night.
The Polish superstar limped off following a knock after scoring the second goal in the 2-0 win over RB Leipzig at the weekend.
However, this morning Bayern announced he would not be travelling and Rummenigge revealed Lewandowski would have been in the squad if Real Madrid had been the opposition.
