Bellingham did score in the enthralling European encounter but it was not enough to avoid a shock upset.
That leaves Dortmund with it all to do if they are to book their place in the last 16 with a comprehensive win in Scotland next week.
Yet despite the magnitude of the task, England international Bellingham, 18, insists he is relishing the prospect of heading to Glasgow.
Speaking after the game, he told BT Sport: “There’s a bit of hope because we have the second leg and there’s not one person in that changing room is going to give up. I won’t let them.
“We’re going to go there and give it everything. We know how hard it’s going to be
“For me personally, can’t wait to play at Ibrox, it’s one of the best stadiums in Europe when it’s packed on a big European night. So bring it on.”
Bellingham remains one of Dortmund’s biggest stars following his performances since arriving from Birmingham City.
He has scored nine goals and assisted a further 15 in 77 appearances for the Bundesliga side.
Bellingham’s existing contract with Borussia Dortmund does not expire until 2025.
But he is still being linked with a big money move back to England as the Premier League‘s biggest clubs are interested in him.
And he replied: “Jude Bellingham & the summer window is fine for me!”
