Celtic v CFR Cluj - Paradise, Tuesday 13 August - all comments here

CELTIC exited the Champions League at this stage last season against a bang average AEK Athens side after a 1-1 draw in the first leg. But that was at home, Celtic was in disarray behind the scenes and this spilled onto the park and into the media throughout that awful August last year. Things are different now, Celtic are free-scoring and there is a real feel good factor about the players which will be evident tomorrow night. The crowd can play it's part to roar the side on. Neil Lennon enjoys the challenge of playing in the Champions League and unlike Rodgers he's got a pretty decent record.

Expect Jozo and Elhamed to be back in the side along with Mikey Johnston and of course Odsonne Edouard and Ryan Christie.

After being at fault for Motherwell's opener Scott Bain will be sweating as he awaits the team selection - Neil Lennon has said he wants to play the keeper who is best at keeping the ball out of the net and that could mean Craig Gordon gets the nod. If he gets a reprieve Bain must know that he's due a shut out and a decent performance.

Team likely to look like this

Bain (if he's lucky)

Elhamed Ajer Simonuvic Bolingoli

Brown McGregor Christie

Forrest Edouard Johnston

Expect Celtic to win by a few goals. COYBIG

Celtic TV are showing the match live to all subscribers ie around the world and in Britain and Ireland - so that indicates that the tickets are selling out. Going to be a special night, see you there!

That first half was woeful,inept and ineffectual and all because we don't have a left back ffs. Edouard is NOT a lone striker. Let's go 4-4-2 and give this team something to worry about. 3\10 SO far.
The only people on this earth who think that calmac is a left back is Rodgers and Neil Lennon. Tonight is not the night for me to start on Lennon again but FFS, Β£3M for a left back that he signed and he plays our most composed player in a position that he can’t play. You couldn’t make this up🀬
