Celtic assistant manager Chris Davies has revealed that his team are aiming to play against some of the biggest teams in the Champions League.

After reaching the Champions’ League group stages this season, they faced off against the likes of Borussia Monchengladbach, Manchester City and Barcelona, where they drew three matches and lost three and Davies wants more of the same.

“It would be great to play against one of the big teams again next year and measure ourselves in terms of where we are at as a team against them. That’s the aim, we want to be at the highest level, representing Celtic, making our fans proud on the biggest stage and that is what we’re aiming for.” said Davies.

Celtic will need to do well in the Champions League should they wish to improve the reputation of the Scottish League which many regard as being significantly less competitive than the world’s so called elite leagues.

The Bhoys have been in good form this season having already won the Scottish League Cup and Championship, and are set to play against Aberdeen in the final of the Scottish Cup.
