Astana in Kazakhstan Again ….

Well the draw wasent to kind to us again as a trip to Astana in Kazakhstan is the outcome of yesterday’s draw for the qualifying round of this seasons champions league having played the same team last season and winning 3-2 on aggregate were heading on another epic journey to make the group stages yet again …

European draws haven’t been kind to celtic in the last few years whether it’s in Qualifiers or the group stages themselves ,I’d lay odds on celtic drawing Barcelona or Real Madrid in their group if they qualify …

Brendan Rodgers knows this tie will be on a knife edge but the bhoys can prevail and get to the group stages and swell the parkhead coffers by 25-30 million in revenue , our neighbours across the city are squirming with envy right now..

No matter the outcome celtic will have European group stage football till Christmas at least with the parachute of the europa league should they fail in Kazakhstan…

I’m confident this squad can do well in the tie and progress the 2 legs should be very interesting indeed 1-1 was the result in Kazakhstan last season with a 2-1 win in Glasgow for celtic both games were very tight …

Celtic can be very happy with the way they disposed of Rosenberg on Wednesday night a professional display from a team showing glimmers of what it takes to play European football away from home..

The manager had to play the game with no recognised striker and to come through the tie the way they did says a lot about how the players are playing for the boss ..

Their were a few standout performances on Wednesday Simunovic  was outstanding and I thought Scott Brown and Keiran Teirney were excellent …

One more hurdle to get over then we can settle down to the new season, last year was fantastic and not much could have topped it perhaps maybe a better champions league showing but I’m glad to see the team involved baby steps,we just need the luck of the draw now ….
