CELTIC are at the mercy of the international break right now but when they return to action the games come thick and fast for the Hoops.
Neil Lennon has had an impressive start to the season and that’s been highlighted by the fact Celtic have qualified for the knockout round of the Europa League with two games to spare.
Their Euro rivals Rennes had big hopes for this campaign but they haven’t got going since Celtic took a point off them in France. Heading out of the competition prematurely, the Rennes boss Julien Stephan has made the admission he’s ready to play his young stars against Celtic at Parkhead after the international break.
With Celtic chasing the number one spot in the group they’re likely to field a strong team at home against the French club giving them a boost in their pursuit for a number one finish.
Rennes have nothing but pride to play for but Celtic should be wary of a team trying to prove a point with players looking to make an impact. The result won’t be a foregone conclusion and it’ll be up to the bhoys on the night to make the right impact.
Speaking to SunSport, the Rennes boss confirmed his intentions.
