Linfield manager riles up Celtic ahead of European meeting

Celtic will be facing Northern Ireland side Linfield in the Champions League next week, and now that that has been confirmed, the manager of the Belfast club has taken the time to speak on the tie.

Ahead of the second qualifying round tie, David Healy- a former Rangers player- had quite a lot to say.

According to the Daily Record, the manager said “we’ll fly the Linfield-Rangers connection but I am under no illusions how difficult it will be.” He then called it “Mount Everest,” but he talked up the fact that they had just earned two clean sheets in the prior round.

This is sure to rile up the Celtic fans, who will not be allowed in unless they have a ticket. No ‘briefs’ have been given to traveling fans, so it will be sparse to see any Hoops fans in the crowd.

Yet still, these words from Healy will definitely spice up this match and give everyone another reason to have interest.
