Sport podcast: Celtic impress in Moscow as Levein recalls both Fletchers
We heap praise on Neil Lennon after Celtic’s first ever away win in the Champions League, while there is plenty to discuss after Craig Levein’s latest Scotland squad announcement.
Nick Mitchell is joined by Stuart Bathgate and Andrew Smith to chew over an interesting week in Scottish football.
On Tuesday evening Celtic showed true character in their 3-2 victory against Spartak Moscow in the Luzhniki Stadium, a result that bolsters their hopes of reaching the knockout stages. Is this a sign of Neil Lennon and his young squad growing in stature, and how will they cope with the looming proposition of Barcelona?
Not one but two Fletchers made their return to the Scotland squad this week, but it was the inclusion of Steven which took us all by surprise. Is this simply a case of common sense prevailing, or could it be a ploy by Craig Levein to shift mounting pressure on someone else ahead of the crucial World Cup qualifiers against Wales and Belgium?
We also read out some of your comments, and argue over the subtle differences between a 4-3-3 and a 4-3-2-1 formation, before Andrew has to race off for the League Cup draw.
