Nakamura shoudl'nt just be looked at on deadball's he's also good from edge of the box, he's alot like Pirlo, but better at free kicks + can run, at least a little bit.
Another player if fit that we'd have to watch out for is Maloney, he's about 23 very good player, watched him in Rangers - Celtic derby last year.

celtic are a good side and we must not under rate them. we underrated deportivo a few years ago after we won the first leq 4-1 them lost the second 4-0. to get to the knockout stage in the ecc shows that the side is one of the top sides in europe so we need to be careful. they have a talented side but if we play as well as we can play we should get the better of them. we need to take it one game at a time n get some wins on the trot in the serie a so we can go in the tie with confidence.

Celtic isn't the worst opponent and they are defeatable. Nakamura and Vennegoor are the biggest threats I think, but there is a lot of time til the match so that our boys can get in form and kick the s**t out of Scottish boys

Hail! Hail!

Great tie for Celtic as well lads and we are certainly looking forward to it. A lot depends on what happens at Celtic Park as, as posted, we do not travel well away from home. Strachan will be looking to bring some players in during the transfer window to put a bit of steel into the midfield and a decent c/half Looking forward to the game and will be travelling over for the tie.

Any chance of a couple of tickets off youse?

Slight relief perhaps but there are no easy opponents, especially for us lately. I hope Milan will give a decent showing and score a few goals...but not own goals.

So far Celtic is hopeless at away games at Champions League, but in their ground Celtic Park, they is as hard as nails. The match will be interesting to watch, especially when Rino is playing at Glasgow.

I admit I don't follow Scottish football. Not even Le Guen managed to raise my interest.. LOL. My guess is they play simple kick + rush type football + as simple as it is it could be hard as hell for our old/slow/out-of-form defense + that Fliegenfänger of a goalkeeper to handle a high ball bombardment. Am I totally off here ?

Im glad that so many of you boys reckon this will be an easy tie for AC, Its my opinion that Celtic will win this over the 2 legs 2-0 & 0-0.

by the way MR SPY OR MISS SPY , your team is nothing compared to milan. what has celtic achieved in europe ? dont be so confident your celtic wining us. remember, the more confidence you get, the more disapointed you will be when your team loses.

this is the furthest your team can can go.
hope to see you again next season,MR OR MISS CELTIC FAN!

well i'm surprised if you call this a relief.
man, we always had some problems when we were facing high paced teams back then. i'm not sure celtic will be an easy adversary on this stage, not much to comment about the game i think. i'm not that confident currently, but i still have high hope for us.

so, i searched for some news on celtic's official site, and i got this comment page..you might want to read this.. http://www.celticfc.net/newsroom/new...15_1510JS'

No, if we want to win this thing we need to face the big ones, one way or another.

makes no difference mate. its either we deal with the weak ones first or the stronger first. in this case, we have to deal with the weak first ( celtic ). we give the stronger teams a little more chance to survive in the cl. after celtic, i like to meet chelsea. so please God, let us meet chelsea after we defeated celtic , so we can show them who's boss.
