Celtic out for re­venge against Barca

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

De­spite suf­fer­ing an em­bar­rass­ing 7-0 de­feat at the Nou Camp in Septem­ber, Celtic feel they can ex­act re­venge when they host Barcelona tonight [11.45 UAE time]. Barca’s have made their worst start to a sea­son in 10 years and were held to a 0-0 draw by Malaga, a re­sult that Celtic are tak­ing some con­fi­dence from. “It’s a mas­sive game for us to prove our­selves,” said Celtic for­ward Scott Sin­clair. “I think we’ve learned a lot from the de­feat and hope­fully now we’re go­ing in with a pos­i­tive mind­set. “Manch­ester City beat Barcelona, so any­thing can hap­pen and it’s very dif­fer­ent when you’re play­ing at home. “Be­ing in front of our own crowd will spur us on be­cause those fans are un­be­liev­able. Barcelona have been beaten here be­fore so, hope­fully, we’ll do it again.” Mean­while, Barca striker Luis Suarez had kind words for Celtic boss Bren­dan Rodgers but made it clear he would not do his for­mer Liver­pool boss any favours. “I have only good things to say about Bren­dan. He has been a very im­por­tant coach in my devel­op­ment,” said Suarez. “But the Cham­pi­ons League is no place for favours. Our ob­jec­tive is to win and that has to start against Celtic.”
