Champions League nightmare

In the third round of Champions League qualifiers Celtic are facing Polish team Legia Warsaw.

The Scottish team had a torrid time in Warsaw, losing the first leg 4-1, bringing manager's Ronny Deila his first loss at the club. Callum McGregor got Celtic off to a good start sending a curling effort into the top corner.

However, it all went downhill after that for the Scottish club. Warsaw went on to score twice curtsey of Miroslav Radovic and more misery was piled on when Efe Ambrose was sent off.

The Polish club added another two goals in the second half before the game was done through Michal Zyro and Jakub Kosecki.

The club based in Poland could have scored more but Ivica Vrdoljak missed two penalties.

The Scottish club therefore need a win by 3 goals or more in the home leg to overturn the defect suffered in poland.

Southampton move

Despite his heroics in the first leg in Warsaw, Forster is reported to want to be set to complete a move. If Celtic are not able to overturn the three goal deficit they suffered in poland, Forster is reportedly going to move to the south coast of England to Southampton for £8 million.
