THE BIG STORY: Incredibly enough, there's no major transfer rumours to report this morning, so instead let's hear from former Celtic goalie Fraser Forster, who ahead of Scotland-England this weekend was looking back on his four years at Celtic which included a record eleven league clean sheets in a row and the legendary 2-1 win against Barcelona, stating that he 'loved' his time at Celtic, he also pinpointed his old teammate Leigh Griffiths as the player England should fear at Hampden on Saturday. Sticking with Scotland, the legendary Danny McGrain has backed Kieran Tierney to have a fine game against England even though he'll be playing in the unfamiliar role of right-back, and Terry Butcher has said that Scott Brown is good enough to play in England. Cheers for that, Tel.

SITE NEWS: Yesterday we reported on Celtic's trip to Austria at the end of the month, you can read it here.

ON THIS DAY: In 1967, newly crowned Champions of Europe Celtic defeated Real Madrid 1-0 in Alfredo Di Stefano testimonial. This was the legendary Di Stefano's last ever game, and he requested for the game. Real were forced to play in blue shorts after Celtic refused, with Bobby Lennox scoring the game's only goal, with Jimmy Johnstone the man of the match. Highlights of the game are below.
