Stjarnan captain Michael Praest promises special goal celebration against Celtic

Celtic U-20s

Celtic will face Stjarnan in the second qualifying round of the Champions League.

Stjarnan captain Michael Praest has told The Scottish Sun that he and his teammates will prepare a special goal celebration for the games against Celtic.

Icelandic champions Stjarnan are famous for their exuberant goal celebrations, and defender Praest has said that he and his teammates will have something special for the Champions League second-round qualifier against Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

“We haven’t done the celebrations for a while,” the 28-year-old told The Scottish Sun. “We have been trying to take things more seriously in the last year.

“But I’m sure we will have a special one in the back pocket for if we score at Celtic Park. All I know is that we’d all go ****ing crazy if we get a goal in Glasgow.

“We’ll definitely practise the celebrations a little bit before we go to Celtic Park just in case that happens.”

Tricky tie

The Urvalsdeild champions will head into the tie as the underdogs, but Scottish giants Celtic cannot become complacent, especially as the first leg is at Celtic Park.

Ronny Deila’s side will need to win that game by a good margin, or else they could face a tricky trip to Iceland a week later.

The Bhoys failed to progress to the group stage of the Champions League last season, and they will certainly not want to repeat the same failure this term.

Stjarnan came close to qualifying for the Europa League group stage last season, and they will give it a go this time around as well.
