‘I’M HEADING FOR PARADISE,’ KOP STAR

0

JAMES MILNER has admitted he knows what to expect when he takes a Select line-up to Celtic Park on Saturday, September 8.

The Liverpool midfielder will perform in the charity game that will bring together his foundation with that of Stan Petrov and Celtic.

The former England international said: “I have played twice at Celtic Park. Once in a pre-season match when I was at Newcastle and once for England.

“But I feel I know Celtic well as my team-mate Andy Robertson never stops going on about them.

“He never lets up about Celtic. I thought I was bad going on about Leeds United, who are my team, but it’s Celtic, Celtic, Celtic non-stop with him.

“I am well-drilled about Celtic, the club and its history. I try to wind him up, but he just comes back with more.”

Robertson has also told Milner to refer to Celtic Park as “Paradise” while he is there!

The Scotland defender was released by the Hoops at the age of 15, but broke through at Queen’s Park before moving on to Dundee United and Hull City, where his performances convinced Anfield boss Jurgen Klopp to pay £8 million to sign him a year ago.
