Inside Sport podcast: Scottish clubs restore some pride in Europe
In this episode: Celtic are in the group stage of the Champions League, and Hearts only lost out to Liverpool with two minutes to spare, so is Scottish football now back from the doldrums?
This week Graham Bean and Graham Lindsay consider Celtic’s chances against Barcelona, Benfica and Spartak Moscow, and consider the effect of Neil Lennon’s success on the ravaged reputation of Scottish football.
Hearts also put in a determined performance against Liverpool but were punished in the dying minutes by Luis Suarez’s swift response to David Templeton’s goal. What can they, and fellow Europa League contenders Motherwell, take away from their short campaigns?
The chaos of transfer deadline day is in full swing, but will more SPL players end up at Third Division Rangers?
In rugby, the RaboDirect PRO12 makes its return this weekend with Edinburgh and Glasgow back in action. David Ferguson looks ahead to the new season and introduces the all-new Scotsman Rugby Show.
