Celtic’s Nadir Ciftci wary of the threat four Fenerbahce players pose

Celtic will face Fenerbahce at Celtic Park in the Europa League this evening.

Celtic forward Nadir Ciftci has highlighted on the club’s official website four Fenerbahce players he and his teammates should be wary of this evening.

Scottish Premiership champions Celtic will take on the Turkish giants at Celtic Park in the Europa League Group A in a few hours’ time.

“They have a lot of very talented players,” Ciftci told Celtic’s official website. “Mehmet Topal, who played for Valencia, is very good. Then there is the Brazllian, Fernandao, who is a big, powerful striker.

“Ozan Tufan plays for the national team and he’s just 20, and Alper Potuk, who is another young player, are both very good too."

Celtic, who failed to qualify for the group stage of the Champions League this season, played out a 2-2 draw with Ajax away from home in the Europa League last month.

Ronny Deila’s side have won all three of their European home games this season, and they will be fancied by many to pick up all three points in Glasgow this evening.

However, Fenerbahce have a very good team and have won all six of their Europa League group stage away fixtures - five of them 1-0.

The Turkish giants are at the foot of Group A, while Celtic are second with one point from one game.
