BROWN STRIKE PLEDGE

SCOTT BROWN insists Celtic’s hitmen will shoot down Fenerbahce at Parkhead on Thursday night.
The Hoops bombarded the Hearts goal during the one-sided scoreless stalemate at the weekend.
Amazingly, only five attempts called visiting keeper Neil Alexander into action.
However, the all-action Hoops skipper believes the situation will be rectified against the Turks during the Europa League tie in Glasgow.
He said: “We’re looking forward to the game, especially after the result in Amsterdam when we got a point in the 2-2 draw with Ajax – and it could maybe even have been three.
“It’s going to be a great atmosphere as it always is at Celtic Park and, hopefully, we can do ourselves justice.
“We played really well against Hearts and if we had scored in the first-half, we would have gone on and won 3-0 or 4-0.
“Craig Gordon had nothing to do, but we could have cost ourselves dearly right at the end.

“It was just one of those things – Efe Ambrose made a great team decision because if the Hearts player had got past him and scored a goal it would have been three points lost.

“We need to take positives from the game, though. We kept Hearts pretty much at their 18-yard line for most of the game.

“However, we just need to be a bit more clinical in front of goal.”
Fenerbahce, who were installed as favourites for the group when the draw was made, got off to a dreadful start when they collapsed 3-1 at home to Molde, the Norwegian outsiders, in the first tie.
