Raith Rovers boss John McGlynn has stated that his sides visit to Celtic Park is ‘as daunting as ever’ as they prepare to make the trip to Glasgow on Thursday night.
As quoted by Sun Sport, McGlynn is hoping his side can provide a shock result but also admitted they are realistic heading into the game and know the dangers that this Celtic side has caused for other teams at Parkhead this season.
“Going to Celtic Park is as daunting as ever. Yes, we did well in the Aberdeen game, but this is a different kettle of fish. I’ve gone through there with very good Hearts teams, and it’s a difficult place to get a result.
“Hearts found that out this season in the cup after beating Celtic in the Premiership at Tynecastle.
“We have to be at our best, but we know what Celtic did to Dundee and St Mirren at home this season, so we know what they are capable of. We are realistic about the tie, and we don’t get caught up in pie-in-the-sky stuff. But at the same time, we have to be optimistic.”
At home this season, it has pretty much been so far, so good for Ange Postecoglou, with his sides most impressive performances coming at Celtic Park.
Fans have been loving some of the football on display, producing two 6-0 victories over Dundee and St Mirren.
Of course, we would love to see that translated over to the away form, and I am personally optimistic that it will come under Ange eventually.
We now have three fixtures at Paradise, so it is an excellent opportunity to build some momentum once again.
