Three games and two defeats in and our Champions League group is already a daunting task. More so with the absence of Kieran Tierney, Kolo Toure and Jozo Simunovic, the latter of which casts a long shadow.
My hopes for tonight are limited to putting on a good performance. A result, even a draw, would be of historic proportions, but these are the games we should be facing down with increasing confidence.
Gladbach deserved their win at Celtic Park two weeks ago, but our wounds were self-inflicted on that occasion. If we’d been tighter at the back the game was within our grasp.
On these occasions I’m usually keen for Celtic to play things tight, but with chances of progression so distant, we are as well playing our natural game. Go for it, Celtic.
