Zenit St Petersburgh v Celtc

While others feast on Champions League Celtic finds themselves in the Europa. The first leg at Parkhead was a brilliant team performance. I watched it in the pub and was that twitchy way. I kicked every ball. But as John Urquhart said ‘if you kicked every ball Celtic would be at least four doon’. Fair enough. You can’t argue with that. But look at De Vries. He hasn’t made a save for about seven years, yet there he was making a vital save bang on 15 minutes. Look at Jozo, gifted goals against Hearts and Partick Thistle, but here you’d think he was Robbocop.  Calumn McGregor, never good enough for Celtic, but awright. He was man of the match. Eboue Koussai is best known for coming on as a sub and going off again without anybody noticing he’s been on the park. He was outstanding as was the other midfield trident. James Forest, flatters to deceive. No he didn’t. Brilliant. Dembele, never a thirty-million- pound player. He was here. All over the pitch Celtic were smiles better. Charly Musonda cameo got us that goal. Let’s hope the first leg is repeated in the second.
