JOZO SIMUNOVIC claims Celtic need fear no-one as they prepare for Wednesday’s Champions League crunch against Bundesliga giants Borussia Monchengladbach at Parkhead.
The Croatian central defender, who played the full 90 minutes of the 2-0 win over Motherwell at the weekend, is hoping to get the nod to face the Germans while Kolo Toure and Erik Sviatchenko are also in contention.
Simunovic, whose Hoops career has been jinxed by injury since his £3.5million move from Dinamo Zagreb last summer, said: “Will Borussia be scared? I haven’t even thought about them.
“I just think about our team and the Celtic fans.

“What I can say is that we are not afraid of anybody, especially at home. We believe in ourselves and we can’t wait for the start of the match. We are very positive about Wednesday.

“I can’t wait. I don’t know whether I will play or not, but it’s about the team. No matter who the manager picks, I know they will give their all.

“We pressed high against Manchester City and we will try to do that again. We need to believe in how we play. I am very confident about the game against Borussia.

“I don’t know much about them, I have never played against them, but it’s about us. We don’t need to focus on the other team, we need to focus on our own game and give 150 per cent.

“We have good attacking players and that gives us confidence. We need to believe that we can win.

“We are also at home and with the fans behind us, with the amazing atmosphere inside the stadium, we have a good chance.

“This is a big game, but that’s always the case. We need to treat this like the biggest game and be ready to give everything.”
