Scottish Gossip: Celtic, Zenit, Rangers, Scotland

Former Rangers winger and Russian Federation global Andrei Kanchelskis isn't confident that his countrymen at Zenit St Petersburg will be able to cope with the atmosphere at Parkead in the upcoming Europa League clash against Celtic. "For us as a club and a team, we want to win this cup".

And Rodgers has suggested that that the Australian worldwide could now return to Celtic's first-team sooner rather than later.

Celtic head into their match against Zenit on the back of a victory, having beaten Partick Thistle 3-2 in their last match.

Rangers striker Kenny Miller has revealed he's still not over the 2016 Scottish Cup Final defeat by Hibs.

Zenit Saint Petersburg scored 17 goals in the 2017-18 Europa League group stage; more than any other team in the competition.

Though the Hoops won the domestic treble last season unbeaten, they have been struggling to compete in the Champions League during recent years and though they did manage to qualify for the Europa League last 32 this season after finishing in third position in their Champions League group, they were comprehensively outplayed by Bayern Munich and French giants PSG.

Zenit will pose a tough challenge for the Bhoys, who are determined to progress as far as they can in the Europa League this term.

With Zenit possessing the Russian Premier League's top goalscorer in the form of Aleksandr Kokorin, the Celtic defence, and Simunovic, will need to be much-improved if they are to record a positive result in the first leg at Parkhead.

"I myself played against Celtic - the atmosphere there is insane...60,000 fans who support their team and make an incredible noise" he said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
