Easy draw for Celtic in the Europa & Hearts preview.

Celtic were indeed, rotten in Denmark, on our last trip there in 2008 but the Copenhagen draw for the next round of the Europa League should be a dawdle, and was one of the easiest teams we could have faced to progress to the last sixteen.

We faced them in the Champions League back in 2006, with Kenny Miller securing a win for us at Celtic Park thanks to a disputable penalty, and we’d already went through to the next stage despite our 3-1 battering there for the last game in the group stage.

Now, they are second in the Danish league, four points off Midtjylland, but before you gasp and go ‘oh they must be decent’, please bear in mind this is the same Midtjylland that Rangers disposed off in the qualifying stage and the Danish league is, let’s be honest, an absolute joke.

Scottish teams are in a far better position than any jobbers from there.

There is zero doubt we’ll batter them at Celtic Park and do the business away from home.

Speaking of jobbers, we face Hearts tomorrow at Tynecastle in what should be another simple three points for us.

Preview for that will be up tomorrow, as well as a shoot prediction.
