John Hartson sends Celtic message on Twitter, makes group-stage prediction

The former Celtic striker has taken to social media ahead of the Bhoys' Europa League clash with Molde.

Former Celtic striker John Hartson has taken to Twitter ahead of the Scottish champions' Europa League clash with Molde to wish them luck.

The Bhoys find themselves on two points after three group-stage games, having drawn with both Ajax and Fenerbahce before losing 3-1 to Molde in Norway.

Celtic host Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in the return clash at Parkhead on Thursday night and Hartson has wished Ronny Deila's men luck.

More than that, the Welshman has predicted that three points will be enough to put the Bhoys firmly back in the group.

Will a win against Molde be enough to put Celtic back in a strong position?

Three points would take the Bhoys to five, while Molde sit on seven. If Fenerbahce win in Amsterdam, they will also be on seven. But an Ajax win might be favourable for the Hoops, opening things up by taking the Dutch side to five.

Deila's side will still need two more strong results should they beat Solskjaer's team on Thursday night but it will certainly be a start. Can they deliver, though?
