Celtic Welcome Connie, Lennon, Sutton and Lambert plus McCoist and McInnes

After being denied access to Ibrox on Matchday 1 of the Group stages of the Europa League Neil Lennon and Chris Sutton will be allowed to go about their business this evening at Celtic Park where Celtic take on Bayer Leverkusen.

Lennon and Sutton will be joined by their former Celtic teammate Paul Lambert and former Motherwell defender Stephen Craigan makes up the line-up for the Celtic game.

Connie McLaughlin is also back at Paradise this time working for BT Sport rather than Celtic TV where she made quite a name for herself last season on the Pass to Paradise. Welcome back Connie! We’d better not talk up her Celtic credentials or she’ll end up like her brother and get banned from Ibrox alongside the former Celtic stars.

Ally McCoist and Derek McInnes are also both working for BT Sport from Celtic Park this evening for the early kick-off as Sparta Prague play theRangers. Both former Rangers players – and McCoist was also the first ever manager of theRangers – will be admitted to Celtic Park and treated respectfully by everyone at the club. McCoist might enjoy a bit of banter with one or two Celtic fans but that will be the extent of it.

Compare and contrast with the freak show down river.
