IT is only 16 days until matchday one of the Champions League for Celtic.
FOR the second time in four days Celtic found themselves frustrated witless by a team clad in tangerine and black, only to discover their inspiration at the crucial moment.
Celtic reached the Champions League group stages for the second successive season after beating Shakhter Karagandy in a dramatic play-off with an injury-time James Forrest goal.
PREPARE the red carpet and open the bank vault: the Champions League's aristocracy and their money are on the way back.
IF Tony Watt achieves nothing else in the remainder of his career, then his Champions League goal against Barcelona last year will surely entitle him to free drinks and pats on the back from Celtic fans for the rest of his days.
