Patrick Twumasi eyes Celtic revenge in Champions League clash

Patrick Twumasi eyes Celtic revenge in Champions League clash

Patrick Twumasi has came out and said he wanted to leave the club for Turkish side Bursapor. If it was a big gamble I wouldn't do it.

'If you think too much of the effect you may not sleep, ' he said.

"But you also have to think of the level of the game".

To do that they will probably need to build a comfortable lead in the first-leg, as the 7,000 mile round trip, and the fact that Astana are mid-way through their season will both play into the Kazaks' favour this time around.

"Okay, it might not be ideal playing Nir there but he has got a good idea of what he is doing". Players love football but they don't necessarily love the club. I don't see it as a risk.

They are midway through their domestic campaign and are on course to make it nine league wins in succession. I would never just sit down and say let's play him in there because he is tall.

Rodgers could pick young Norwegian kid Kristoffer Ajer at centre-half.

Another concern for the Parkhead faithful is that Rodgers did not state outright that he would reject an offer if one was tabled, and with the 44-year-old seemingly anticipating that moment rather than speaking hypothetically, Celtic could well have to face the time when Tierney does depart the club.

So it's not like he doesn't have other options.

"But it's certainly a team we will go and be aggressive with to get a good result".

"I'm not anxious, but I wouldn't be surprised", Rodgers told the Sunday Express.

"We've played seven competitive games and conceded one goal - and we've hardly given away any opportunities".

"We know what it's like out there - hotel, astroturf pitch, same manager and virtually the same players". Those talks will continue in effort to get the player back to Glasgow. "And a lot of the players over this early part of the season - James Forrest, Tom Rogic and Bitton - are guys who've been enormous for us because they've filled in and done jobs out of position".

"I didn't expect to get it".

Celtic are missing some of their key players in defence due to injuries and are looking to sign a cover defender that has worldwide experience. It's always going to be tough, whoever you play.

Celtic met FC Astana in Champions League third qualifying round last season, beating the Kazakh side 3-2 on aggregate.

What have they actually changed from last season?

"It's how you cope with it". I thought Rosenborg were a very good team, one who make you work and have some unsafe players.

"Yeah if Moussa was fit it would be a massive help to us but with the quality we have got in the dressing room we're more than capable of getting through the two ties". It's a different animal to a year ago.

"But the European games we had a year ago helped us gain a resilience". They are a better counter-attacking team with Mohamed Salah, but the issue for Liverpool is not about attacking, it's about defending just like Arsenal.

They were decent at the back and Jordan Pickford was very good on his debut, making some excellent saves, but Everton have not got many goals in them.

He said: "We are happy with it".

"We'll take that into the game with the energy of the crowd and, if we have to be patient as we might have to, we have to be compact and take our chances".
