Jim Craig on the 'luxury' that Inter Milan have and Celtic don’t

Celtic legend Jim Craig is looking forward to the Europa League tie against Inter Milan.

The Scottish Premiership champions have been drawn against the Italian outfit in the round-of-32 in the European competition.

The two teams contested the final of the 1967 European Championship, but this time things are different.

Both Celtic and Inter failed to qualify for this season’s Champions League, with the latter struggling in Serie A at the moment.

Nevertheless, Craig, who won the European Cup with Celtic in 1967, is looking forward to the tie and speaks of the “luxury” that Inter have.

“Inter aren’t having the best of seasons domestically but they are used to playing against the top sides in Serie A and that is a luxury that Celtic don’t have, but we should have two great games,” the 71-year-old told Celtic’s official website.

“I’m looking forward to the game. It's sure to be a sell-out crowd at Celtic Park and it could be one of those great European nights.”

The first leg of the tie will be played at Celtic Park in Glasgow on Thursday February 19, with San Siro in Milan to host the second leg the following week.
