Stop Press: Groanin' Jock praises Celtic

It's very rare that I'll praise the forces of darkness over at Celtic, but their performances over the two legs of their Champions League tie with AC Milan were worthy of recognition.
This was a Scottish club going toe-to-toe with one of the best sides in Europe and matching them over 180 minutes of competitive football.
Scottish football is often criticised, and is often deserving of that criticism, but on this instance, Celtic can hold their heads high.
Nonetheless, they are out of Europe, leaving only the famous Glasgow Rangers to fly the Saltire (and the Union Jack) in continental competition.
Hopefully they will get off to a flying start in tonight's first leg of the clash with Osasuna.
