Kazakhstan CL ticket for Celtic


Celtic will play Shakhtyor Karaganda from Kazakhstan in the Champions League play-off round.  Shakhtyor are 22 games into their league season but are 12 points off the pace, so are unlikely to add to their two Kazak titles.

They lost 3-2 away to Skënderbeu Korçë of Albania after a 3-0 home win to reach this stage but eliminated Bate Borisov in the earlier round.

Everyone at Celtic will be delighted to know that St Patrick’s Athletic, from Ireland, eliminated Shakhtyor from the 2011-12 Europa League, overturning a 2-1 deficit to win the home game 2-0.

There is 16 hours of flight time between Celtic and Shakhtyor, not counting refuelling, so the journey will be for the hardy, but as a ticket to Champions League riches, they don’t come much better.

One to keep an eye on, five years ago Shakhtyor were briefly disqualified from league football for match fixing……..

  6. What is the Stars on

    Johnny Murtagh goes to Haydock for 2 rides Educate 2.20 and David Livingston 2.55


    Johnnny is the form of his life now and has also started training horse so the fact that he goes to Haydock today means I would imagine he fancies his chances


    Educate seems to have the best chance as David Livingston is up against Michael Stoutes supposed wonder horse Telescope


    For that reason I will make David Livingston my nap


    Backing both each and and an each way double


    Also been given word for two Hannon horses,Midnite Angel Newmarket 3.35 and Oxlip at Lingfield 5.45

    kiwi bay 3:10 redcar course specialist, hope this is a going day, has come down the handicap a fair bit.



    thanks for the chance fleagle will now try to keep to 1 bet on a Saturday might save some money, even if my nag gets beat.




  11. Hi lads,



    I would have selected Breden (5.20 Newm) as it looks like a definite improver from John Gosden’s yard and William Buick is riding close to his minimum weight…



    However, Che pipped me to the post with that one – so instead I will take a chance on the newcomer from Lady Cecil’s yard :



    Ridgeway Storm (4.45 Newm)




    Good luck to all…
