Major boost for Celtic on the night Rangers eliminated from Europa League

Celtic have been handed a major incentive tonight after results went Scotland’s way, despite Rangers’ elimination at the hands of Slavia Prague. Nine men Rangers lost 2-0 at Ibrox but it was results with Ukrainian teams that now mean that the Scottish Champions next season could all but certainly qualify for the group stages of the Champions League.

Shakhtar and Dynamo Kyiv lost as well today; however, the ever-reliable Moravcik_67 on Twitter updated fans, confirming just how important next season is for Celtic.

Celtic will need to strengthen ahead of the new season with a new manager and footballing operations in place. The management team need to be assembled as soon as possible in order to prepare for the new season. With names like Fergal Harkin and Jesse Marsch touted, Celtic fans can begin to look forward to investment into the team ahead of winning the league title. John Kennedy and the players at Lennoxtown should focus on winning at the weekend. The result at Ibrox proved that Rangers are not as unbeatable as they are made out to be in certain quarters of the media.
