Life is really rather good amongst the Celtic fans here in the Transfer Tavern.
Indeed, the Bhoys in our bar have watched their side beat Rangers and Anderlecht in a week, while fighting back to rescue a point from Neil Lennon’s Hibernian to round off a busy seven days for the Scottish champions.
So, it’s fair to say that the collective mood amongst our resident Hoops is pretty good.
In fact, it’s been made even better following confirmation from ESPN that Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery would likely be ruled out of the imminent Champions League doubleheader between the two clubs.
The Frenchman is understood to have suffered a cruciate ligament tear in his left knee during Die Rotten’s 2-2 draw with Hertha Berlin, which would likely rule him out for a while.
While it’s never nice to see a great player pick up an injury, the Hoops need all the help they can get against Bayern, despite their relative slump of late. Few would doubt their quality, so losing one of their key men obviously helps Brendan Rodgers’ chances of progressing through a very difficult Champions League group.
