Zenit Build Up.

The Russians are indeed, coming.

With Thursday’s Europa League game looming against the Russian CRACKS Zenit, here’s the latest patter in the build up to the game on various sites :

First, onto the guy we can blame if we get beat. The ref for the match has been confirmed as Damir Skomina, and the Slovenian has been in charge of two Zenit games before, which they’ve lost 2-0! Here we go.....three in a row?

Dorus De Vries is romanticising about Celtic ‘doing an Ajax’ and making it to the Europa League final, only to gloriously get beat in valiant fashion.

Zenit defender Miha Mevlja seems to think because he kept Harry Kane quiet on international duty, that somehow he’ll do the same against us. Mate, Chris Martin scored a winner against your country so shut it.

The second leg in Russia is set to be a sell out as well.

AND FINALLY, some idiot at Celtic’s social media department didn’t do their homework on Zenit’s club badge and the St Petersburg outfit weighed in with a dig in hilarious fashion.

Here’s hoping for some amazing reply from Celtic tomorrow, because that’s what really matters, those sweet sweet numbers. Forget the results on the pitch, I want to see us get more followers than them.
