Celtic v Cluj – Paradise set for Champions League sell-out

CELTIC TV will broadcast tomorrow’s Champions League match against Cluj live on Celtic TV and the game will be available to ALL subscribers including those in Britain and Ireland.

“We have the worldwide TV rights for tomorrow’s game. Join us as ⁦Celtic aim for the ⁦UEFA Champions League play-offs. (P.S The match WILL be shown to subscribers inside the U.K. & Ireland),” Celtic TV tweeted.

This seems to indicate that the Celtic support have come forward in huge numbers to secure their seats for this vital match and that the tickets are just about if not completely sold out.

Had the uptake been slower Celtic would have held back on allowing the game to be shown on Celtic TV in Britain and Ireland to encourage ticket sales. The game is in the balance after the 1-1 draw in Romania last Wednesday – if you missed Matt Corr’s excellent European Diary from that trip you can catch up HERE.

Matt’s deeply moving Diary from Celtic’s trip to Sarajevo – ‘Something inside, so strong…the spirit of Miss Sarajevo,’ Matt Corr’s Diary, Dedicated to the victims of the Siege of Sarajevo and the massacre at Srebrenica – was perhaps The Celtic Star’s finest article to date, it really does deserve to be read by as many Celtic supporters as possible. If you missed it, you can read it HERE.

Neil Lennon rested several players for the trip Fir Park at the weekend which was a difficult fixture to be sandwiched between the third round of Champions League qualifiers.

This time last year Brendan Rodgers’ side had drawn 1-1 at Celtic Park with AEK Athens before going to Hearts and losing 1-0 and the going out of the Champions league, losing 2-1 in Athens.

Celtic were struggling to score goals then, but not now and Lewis Morgan perhaps has given us the answer to why that’s the case – ‘The manager’s got us playing good attacking football,’ Lewis Morgan...see HERE.

So it promises to be quite a night at Celtic Park tomorrow evening. It probably is too early in the season for the disco lights but the support will generate the Celtic Noise and roar the side on to victory!
