I’ve been pretty chilled about tonight’s game in Trondheim since last week, but the reality is beginning to dawn. You and I have watch so many of these occasions go wrong; the Basel game in 2002, in particular, comes to mind. 3-1 up from the home leg, we were 2-0 down within minutes and heading out of the ‘lucrative’ Champions League. Not that that European season was a disappointment.
On the road, Celtic in Europe is a bit of a lottery. While this has been true from Zagreb to Gibraltar, there are points in our favour. Brendan was new in the job against Lincoln Red Imps. He put men on the field that night who would not get near his team now. We have scored nine for the loss of one in our three games so far and, by any measure, we are ready for the task in Trondheim.
Get the job done, Celtic.
