Celtic’s heroes wanted home and fit 8 days from Champions League


Delighted as we all are for the success of the Scotland team, flush with six Celtic players in Friday’s starting line-up, Brendan Rodgers will primarily be hoping they, and our many other players on international duty, come through the remaining World Cup qualifiers unscathed.

On Friday we are at Hamilton, but one week tomorrow we face PSG at Celtic Park, against a team who have scored 14 goals in four league games last month – then signed striker, Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.

The one player who could have done with some international game time is Jozo Simunovic, but he managed only the bench as Bosnia easy past Gibraltar. Hamilton’s artificial surface is not the place Brendan would want to give his central defender a run out, after being rested for visit to similar surfaces at Kilmarnock at Astana.  Jozo is fit, so could go straight into the team for Tuesday, but I’m sure the manager would prefer him to have an outing first.

Not that I’m nervous about Tuesday, of course.

  1. Provan asking for keeper to come for that, laughable, ball was miles out of his reach, so much curve and dip.

  2. EBT Mcleish gives a sarcastic reply when asked by the interviewer of the turn around in Scotland’s results being down to the improvement under BR of the Celtic players, pay your tax bill ya dud.

    Macjay…. you mean they don’t want to watch the hoops?






    Thats about the size of it .



  5. The huns and mssm are terrified at the thought of a successful Scottish team full of Celts.


    Their superiority complex will be severely dented and all the bravado in the world can’t deny the truth.


    Also it will raise our players value and profile as well leaving them even further behind.


    Expect the mssm to start the glamour for a token hun to be included in the national side.


    Don’t expect Mexico or Portugal to fall for the bullshit.

  6. The crowd are quiet… this game should have been played at Pittodrie or Easter Road and have the stadium filled

    DD / Bateen Bhoy – thanks for replying and the advice.



    Tout sites up to £280 per ticket minimum already.



    Would be extremely disappointing to be in Munich and not get to the game, so fingers and toes crossed for official tickets via the club – hope they get them released asap so Tims can at least plan properly






  8. It’s England or N Ireland games on instates.


    Watching England who just do not look like a team.Some good individuals but no real shape or movement.


    Weiss playing like a hun for Slovakia flopping and screaming at ref who just ignores his diving and then does not give him foul when it was and should have seen Walker get red card.


    The little hun who cried wolf.
