TL;DR news on Celtic at August 26, 2023

After 2,000 fans attended the friendly against Preston at the weekend, 9,000 came through the Celtic Park gates on Tuesday night for the first leg of the Champions League qualifier against Midtjylland. The crowd was given as 10,000, clearly many Celtic fans having decided to spare themselves the agonies of Ibrox. He also played on the day that Eyemouth of the East of Scotland League paid an unprecedented visit to Celtic Park on Scottish Cup business. About five minutes later Jimmy Johnstone hit another goal after some fine work from John Hughes, and Celtic finished the game well on top. His experience of playing for some of the biggest clubs in Europe could come in handy for Celtic, as well as the fact that he is also capable of playing as a right winger and a right midfielder.

Talk of Forster should be shelved, only to be revisited if the player is free and willing to return to Celtic.
