With Scotland set to face Germany in Munich this evening, Euros fever seems to have captured the nation.

In the tournament curtain-raiser, a few Celts will likely be involved in Steve Clarke’s team.

Captian Callum McGregor, who turns 31 today, is set for the nod alongside Anthony Ralston at right back. Greg Taylor and James Forrest will look to make impacts off the bench.

Among the squad are also several ex-Bhoys. Stuart Armstrong, Ryan Christie, Lewis Morgan, and Jack Hendry are all in with a shout of playing tonight, as is Kieran Tierney.

The defender is key for the national team and ahead of the Euros kicking off, the SPFL posted a brilliant throwback video to one of Tierney’s best Celtic goals.

In a league cup tie with Kilmarnock back in 2017, the 27-year-old captained his boyhood team at centre-half and unleashed a venomous effort from miles out:

With the summer transfer window now open and Tierney’s future up in the air, suggestions over a return to Celtic have inevitably emerged.

Reportedly available for £10m, it remains to be seen whether Brendan Rodgers will seek to reunite with a player he successfully developed during his first spell in Glasgow.
