Celtic

The Hoops
Team Story

By beating Israeli side Hapoel Be'er Sheva in their playoff, Celtic are back in the group stage after missing out for two straight years. Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers began to put his stamp on the club by signing former Fulham hot prospect Moussa Dembele, despite interest from various EPL clubs, along with EPL journeyman Scott Sinclair and two time Premier League winning defender, Kolo Toure. Striker Leigh Griffiths will again lead the line after scoring 40 goals in all competitions last season. After having a few comfortable years in the Scottish Premier League without rivals Rangers, proving themselves in the Champions League is necessary to be seen as more than just a big fish in a very small pond.
