Though it’s not been a vintage start to the season for Celtic after a difficult summer and failing to qualify for the Champions League, the fact Brendan Rodgers’ side went into the international break with a win over Rangers certainly stopped a disaster.
So, it’s just the failings of the Scottish national team for Hoops fans to focus on during the break. All fun and game.
Indeed, the Tartan Army were smashed 0-4 at Hampden Park by Roberto Martinez’s Belgium in a dark moment for the Scottish game ahead of their UEFA Nations League opener with Albania tonight. The Red Devils, who boasted the likes of Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku up front, looked levels above Scotland and remained during the break.

In fact, the World Cup semi-finalists trained at Celtic’s Lennoxtown training base, with Bhoys badboy Dedyrck Boyata included. The Hoops’ official Twitter account posted photos of some of Europe’s biggest stars using the facilities, sending supporters online into a state of delight.
With that said, here’s a look at the reaction.
Not quite the same as Juventus at Murray Park, but still hilarious. Lawwell still trolling Rangers.

If someone could direct Eden Hazard to the locked in and forced to sign a contract room a Mr. B Rodgers will pick him up after the international break.
