James Forrest: Backing Celtic to bounce back from Arbroath display

Neil Lennon's side must better Benfica's result in Barcelona on the same night to secure their place in the knockout stages of the competition.

Their 1-1 home draw with Scottish Second Division side Arbroath may not appear to be the best preparation for a crucial European tie but Forrest, who misses the Spartak game with a hamstring injury, believes they will be fired up to perform against the Russians.

"It's good if you've got two games per week. If you get a bad result it means you can rectify it two or three days later by getting a good result in another game," he said.

"The boys are over the weekend game now and hopefully we can take care of Arbroath when the replay comes around next week.

"The boys are full of confidence for Wednesday night and that's the main thing. We've got the squad to play in all the competitions and we know we can cope in them all.

"All the boys have got faith that they can get through to the last 16 and get a good result on Wednesday.

"We've not been in the Champions League for the last few years so it would be a massive achievement."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
