Rennes boss Julien Stephan has shown off how knowledgeable he is about Celtic by listing four of our key players.
The Frenchman was speaking to press prior to tomorrow’s Europa League opener at Roazhon Park. Stephan gave Celtic the big billing by insisting that they could rival Lazio for top spot in Group E, while he also stated that the vocal Rennes home support could have a big role to play in Thursday night’s game.
“They can play in the air and they are very technical, with Callum McGregor, Ryan Christie, James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard just to mention a few.
“I do believe that Celtic is also one of the favourites. As far as experience goes, for instance, they should be able to perform well, maybe just behind Lazio
“This is a well-balanced team. We know it’s going to be difficult but we are very lucky to be playing at home and the supporters are going to have a big role in a possible win.”
