CHRISTOPH KRAMER has warned his Borussia Monchengladbach team-mates not to expect a typical Scottish performance against a “special” Celtic team tonight.
The midfielder claims the game in Germany is superior to its counterpart in Scotland, but praised the Hoops for being a stand-out side, despite the quality surrounding them.

Kramer said: “I think the Scottish football isn’t as good as the German football, but Celtic is special because they are a very good team here.ctf_hxbw8aao3on

“We have seen in the game against Manchester City they can play well against every team in Europe, so we are not playing against a typical Scottish team.

“We are playing Celtic, they play in the Champions League and they play there because they are good, not because they are a Scottish team.”

Kramer, who featured in Germany’s run to World Cup glory in 2014, has experience of performing on the big occasion.

He played in three of the games in Brazil and was named as a substitute for the other four fixtures. He also features against Scotland twice in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

The defensive operator added, despite Erik Sviatchenko’s claims teams fear coming to Parkhead, he is not apprehensive of what lies ahead.

He said: “Everyone is looking forward to this, they certainly aren’t scared of the atmosphere at Celtic Park. They have earned their place here.”
