Celtic v Rennes - Europa League, Thursday 28 Nov - all comments here

The Celtic focus has been elsewhere this week with the Board banning the Green Brigade and yesterday comparing us to the Zombies for shouting down fascists last month. Three Celtic fans were stabbed remember but Lawwell focused on us using a sweaty word in a song and an anti-fascist banner. It has never been made clear which banner that UEFA fined Celtic for, the Green Brigade's or perhaps the more 'offensive' Bhoys one. Peter Lawwell when he was on the phone to UEFA about Res 12 yesterday morning could have asked for clarity on that and since he's never seen it could have asked them to send over a copy of the Five Way Agreement which appears to be part of the rule book in Scottish football. If we play the game surely we have a right to read and understand the rules?

Anyway Celtic are looking to win the two remaining games, top the group and achieve the highest ever points total in a European group - 16 points. Here's what Lenny has been saying ahead of tonight's game and his Media Conference video is included at the end.

Greg Taylor is likely to start - with both Bolingoli and Hayes injured and he has also been speaking to the Media, again here's our report and the video is at the bottom of the article.

Here are tonight's opponents and you'll see that they have left their top two stars back in France...

As for the team I expect Celtic to line-up like this.


Bauer, Ajer, Jullien, Taylor

Brown, McGregor

Christie, Ntcham, Forrest


Prediction? Celtic 3 Rennes 1

Until the Last Rebel.
I ain't gonna do a Sandbag (who could) but, if you will, a Weedoc summary.
iMO we started without five first choice players and still a comfortable win against European opposition. Rennes may not be first tier opposition but,IMO, would be good enough to compete in another Europa group, Group G for example.
So summary time
Ajer Julien first choice partnetship.
The WALL still the WALL.
both full backs on but for me not first choice
Ntcham good enough, first choice mmmmmmm maybe aye many s no, a first choice in many many teams.
Corpus, Calmac, Broony, Forrest usual class act.
Morgan, Johnston , Bitton, Griffiths therein lies the squad.
NL tactically astute and put out a team that surprised me but did the job.
8\10 The Wall, Corpus.
7\10 Everbody else.

Looks like the work of Nazio fans. But which is the lesser of 2 evils; Nazio or Cluj? Romania also fought on behalf of the Nazis in WW2 indeed it was the collapse of the Romanian held flank which led to the encirclement of German forces at Stalingrad. Celtic will most likely and for good reason send a mostly fringe player team out against Cluj and much as I despise Cluj I'd prefer to see them go through to next round elimination.
