Recommended bet: Half-time/Full-time – Celtic/Celtic @ 5/6 with Coral
Celtic suffered a Scottish Premiership 1-0 defeat at Hearts last weekend, followed by elimination in the qualifying stage of the Champions League at AEK Athens in the week.
In addition, there is a definite issue as to the relative lack of new signings from Rodgers’ perspective and the controversy surrounding Dedryck Boyata’s absence from the Greece trip after having Fulham’s bid for his services rejected by the club.
