The Transfer Tavern is full of punters clad in green and white as Celtic make their long-awaited return to the Champions League tonight. 

And what a return it is.

Celtic Park has played host to its fair share of big European nights over the years and, tonight, ‘Paradise’ welcomes the world’s most expensive player, Neymar.

As if that wasn’t enough, Paris Saint-Germain are also likely to hand the soon-to-be second most expensive player of all time a Champions League debut in their colours, a certain Kylian Mbappe.

While that would scare many supporters who prop up our bar, our resident Hoops are welcoming the challenge.

So, recent reports suggesting Brendan Rodgers is set to hand a Celtic youngster his very own Champions League debut has been met with applause tonight. According to the Scottish Sun, Anthony Ralston is to start against the French giants this evening.

The 18-year-old has started just four competitive games for the club and may face the rather unenviable task of marking Neymar, though has been backed by those online to make an impression.

With that in mind, here’s a look at how Celtic fans reacted to the news that Ralston may start.
