In such a big game we may have a youngster low on confidence as well as a defender in Benkovic who is not 100% fit. "We have seen enough to know we can win at..."

As the pilot slams on the breaks the Celtic fans then produce a sensational racket with most of the plane piling into a celebratory mood and as arms fly around from the seats the excitement for their Europa League clash with RB Leipzig reaches a crescendo.

Australian midfielder Daniel Arzani was handed a training session with the Celtic first-team on Tuesday as he gradually starts to work his way into Brendan Rodgers' plans.

"I don't care if Newcastle are looking at him and thinking that he might be the man if they part company with Rafa Benitez or if Leicester are thinking that he might be a better option than Claude Puel", Hartson writes in the Evening Times.

"It's key coming into these games that we think about performing well".

"I was open and clear with him that in that time a lot of players had come in and have jumped ahead of him in the queue at centre-half so his game time has been and probably will be very limited".

Red Bull Leipzig has been on a six-match unbeaten run since losing their opening Europa League fixture to Red Bull Salzburg.

"But I do know Brendan Rodgers from Celtic and his spell at Liverpool and we know how he likes his teams to play".

Rodgers said: "Jozo looks like he'll be struggling".

"It's not easy to just snap your fingers and just come into a top team with top players who have done very well, but I have been really pleased with how he is developing and working and adapting to how we want to work".

Dominant in the Scottish top-flight for the last decade or so, Celtic fans would ideally have been wishing to be playing in the Champions League this season, but appears the Europa League isn't dampening their enthusiasm, as the video shows below.
