Brown expecting tough test

Scott Brown is expecting a tough test when Celtic take on Dinamo Zagreb tonight.

“It will be a tough game tonight," he told Celtic's official site. "Dinamo’s midfield are supposed to be really good. They play 4-3-3 so we’re going to have to break them down and figure out how we’re going to defend and attack against them as well.”

Deila sets points target

Ronny Deila says that Celtic must get to 10 points if they aim to qualify from their group in the Europa League. 

The Bhoys started with a draw and they will looking to get their first win in the competition when they take on Dinamo Zagreb tonight. 

"The target is to get through and to do that we need 10 points," he said to the Belfast Telegraph.

Rangers thinking of appeal

Rangers are considering making an appeal against the bans of Bilel Mohsni and Kris Boyd.

The pair are in danger of picking up two match bans for violent conduct, but the Light Blues are considering appealing the decision.

“We are still contemplating what our next step will be and will inform the SFA of our intentions," a club's spokesperson said to the Daily Record.

Rangers will thrive off the pressure, says McCulloch

Experienced Rangers star Lee McCulloch insists that the Light Blues will thrive under the pressure they are under.

The 'Gers are facing increased scrutiny after struggling over the course of the opening of the season, but McCulloch says the squad will react positive to the pressure. 

"There is loads of pressure on you, loads of expectation on you and you've got to be able to handle it," he said to the Evening Times. "There's no need worrying about it, I think it gives you an edge to your game."
