RIVAL GUNS FOR HOOPS

0

BILLEL OMRANI is looking forward to scoring against Celtic again following his double blast that pushed the Hoops through the Champions League exit in August.

The striker has been an injury doubt, but he has declared himself fit for tomorrow night’s Europa League Group E encounter in Glasgow.

The Frenchman, 26, inspired the Romanian outfit to a 4-3 win over Neil Lennon’s men to dismiss them from the top competition on a 5-4 aggregate.

Last night, after arriving with his team-mates for the intriguing clash, Omrani told the Scottish Sun: “I am fit and ready to play. I had some pain recently, but I am fine now.

“I want to score in every game I play in so of course I want to score here again.

“We will work hard for the victory. We work a lot in training and we play every single game to win. We will see what happens.”

The former Marseille prospect struck twice inside six minutes to send the eight-in-a-row champions tumbling to their only defeat of the campaign.

Reports in Romania linked Celtic with a £3million move for Omrani just before transfer deadline day on September 2, but Lennon dismissed the speculation.

The French ace added: “I don’t want to talk about interest from Celtic I will just focus on doing my job for the club.

“We had the chance to win against Lazio and we did that and we were happy about that. But that’s in the past and we have to focus on this game now.”

Dan Petrescu’s men overcame the Serie A giants 2-1 with Omrani claiming the winner.
