FORMER Celtic star Charlie Mulgrew believes Scotland can take inspiration from the Hoops’ win over Barcelona five years ago when they take on England tomorrow.
Gordon Strachan’s side are underdogs for the World Cup qualifier at Hampden after Gareth Southgate’s men hammered them 3-0 at Wembley in November.
The Blackburn ldefender was part of Neil Lennon’s team that defeated the Sapanish giants during an unforgettable Champions League encounter at Parkhead.
Mulgrew said: “Every player goes into every game believing they can get something.
“That night against Barca with Celtic, there must have been a belief among us to get something or else we wouldn’t have achieved it.
“The manager, Neil Lennon, was good at giving us that wee bit of hope and highlighting the areas where we could score goals and be effective.
“The manager here with Scotland is just as good at preparing us for matches and having that bit of belief.
“That night against Barcelona was huge for Celtic. Nobody gave us a chance, but we pulled off a victory.
“I really hope we can do the same tomorrow.”
