Since this one is over, I am just making a guess for what could happen w the squad and the trajectory. But I need some info as I do not know who might depart and come in.

Hansen - check
Ostbo - check

Hedenstad - check
Reitan - back?
Tore - check
Jorgen - contract ended?
Bjordal - gone?
Rasmussen - check (3rd CB)
Meling - check
Alex - ??

Konradsen - check
Lundemo - check
Jensen - check
Trondsen - check
Morten - check
Stamenstro - ??

Helland - check
Levi - ?? ut lan ??
Jevtovic - gone?
de Lanlay - ??
Samuel - check
Nicklas - check
Matti - check
Helmersen - ??

any rumors on who is in or out? I guess most of starting 11 will be preserved, yet center back and back up players need to be found I guess. or would there be an attempt to strenghten the defense & midfield more for champions league qualification?

deLanlay should be fit for fight for 2018; Levi most likely staying; else it sounds about right from what we currently know. Not unlikely that Reitan will continue to be out on loan.

CELTIC striker Leigh Griffiths is anticipating a tough opener in their quest for Champions League qualification after being drawn against Alashkert.


"The first game is never going to be easy. It's a long flight, with a tough opponent and we don't know much about them.

"It will be hard and then we have a good tie to look forward to if we get through to the next round (against Rosenborg of Norway or Icelandic champions Valur).

Uefa doesn’t make it easy for clubs from the small countries to give themselves they best chance of success in Europe.

It’s almost as if they don’t want the likes of Celtic.


Rodgers’ team travel to Armenia today to take on NSI Alkashert who won’t be great, but as the Celtic players are some way from being up to speed in terms of being back to full fitness, and it is going to be roasting hot, this is far from a gimme.

Celtic deserve better than this. They have made the group stage two years in a row, the last 16 under Neil Lennon and knock-out stage of the Europa League last time out. They don’t deserve to be seeded and put right into the group stage, but then neither do the fourth-best teams in England, Germany, Spain, and Italy and, yet, that’s what happens now.


Should Celtic get past all four qualifying rounds, and it is possibly the dangerous Rosenburg next, it would be up there with almost anything else Rodgers has pulled off in two years at Celtic Park.

"It's clearly going to be more difficult this year,” Rodgers admitted although he appeared calm and confident when talking about his team’s task.

“It's always difficult and Neil Lennon and Ronny Deila will tell you that three ties were difficult.

"If you think that there is this game and after that, touch wood we get through, then we have Rosenborg in the next game which is not easy. And then you have two more ties after that. It's an extremely challenging period early on in the season. If we had these games in October and November it would be completely different. We have to find a way."

Brendan Rodgers believes Valur Reykjavik’s shock win over Rosenborg on Wednesday night has underlined why the new Champions League qualifying format is more hazardous than ever for clubs like Celtic.


“The Valur win just shows you,” said Rodgers.

“Everyone was probably looking at Rosenborg as being the favourites in that tie but this is a really treacherous period to be playing your games in the tournament.

“Rosenborg are midway through their domestic season as well, so we’ll see how that evolves next week in the second leg. Whoever we play, if we get through our own tie, we’ll meet the challenge.


‘To score a couple of goals late on, as we did in Armenia, is always a good sign of a team’s mental and physical fitness. So, yes, it was a very good result for us and performance at this stage of the season. We’ll never be perfect but it gives us a nice advantage coming to play at home in the second leg next Wednesday.”

Celtic could lose out in their chase for John McGinn unless they cough up around £4 million – with a clutch of English clubs from both the Premiership and Championship beginning to circle the Scotland midfielder. Hibs have rejected two bids from Celtic for the former St Mirren player, the second one £1.75 million – just £250,000 more than their initial offer. Both fall well short of the Capital club’s valuation.

Bendtner can't wait to get another crack at the Scottish champions.

He said: "We would rather be playing Celtic, instead of a Europa League trip to Andorra which we would have got had we not scored the third goal.

"It will be interesting. We met them last year. We have to prepare for next week and then see what's going on. We have not looked at them yet.

"I think it will be a different match than last year. To be honest, we know how they play.

Ajer is relishing a second straight summer qualifier against Trondheim-based Rosenborg, especially the prospect of a return to his homeland for the decisive leg on August 1.

But he’s also wary of the game against his countrymen, who are desperate for revenge after the Hoops ended their Champions League dream last season with a 1-0 aggregate triumph.

Ex-IK Start hero Ajer — a vocal, powerful presence at the back — has good knowledge of Rosenborg, especially fellow national team defender Tore Reginiussen.

He said: “You know when you play Champions League qualifiers all games can be really hard.

“To win both games 3-0 against Alashkert was a good performance and we’re happy to go through.

“Rosenborg is a really tough rival with a lot of quality players. It will be a really tough game both home and away.

“When you play Champions League qualifiers you meet quality opponents. I know Rosenborg well and last year they beat Ajax in the last round to go through, so they’re a top side.

“They can really hurt you if you’re not 100-per-cent up for the game.

“But we know that. When they come here next week hopefully we’ll put on a really top performance.

The budding partnership between Dembele and Odsonne Edouard up front for Celtic hinted at an exciting future, as manager Brendan Rodgers again departed from his favoured formation of playing one up front.

Dembele left the pitch late on with a leg injury but it is not thought to be serious and Brown is looking forward to the potential impact the pair could have this season.

He said: “They have got pace, power and pretty much everything you want.

“Defenders will be scared of them and if they keep playing the way they are playing, hopefully we can keep them fit for the rest of the season.”

Twelve months ago Celtic defeated Rosenborg 1-0 on aggregate. The teams drew 0-0 at Celtic Park in the first-leg, with James Forrest netting the decisive goal in Trondheim. Rodgers expects a similar test. He told the BBC:

“They’ve made some changes but the system is very much the same. They play 4-3-3, like to pass the ball. I think they’ll come here, probably similar to last year, be very compact, very tight, try not to concede. They are all challenges at this stage of the season.”

"They will come here and be nice and compact, like they were last year and we will need to be patient in that game and obviously it will be a tough game for us out there.

"But it is a tie we look forward to. At this stage of the season whoever, you get, you have to respect who you play."

The Scottish champions are still missing key defenders Dedryck Boyata and Mikael Lustig who have not yet returned from World Cup duty while German centre-half Marvin Compper is injured and unlikely to be fit for the first leg.

Rodgers said:

"Every pre-season there is always an issue with centre-halves.

"Marvin was injured, it's his abductor, so we'll see how that is, but it's highly unlikely he'll be available.

"I don't know (with Boyata) - I'll need to assess that over the next few days."

Rodgers also hopes Dembele suffered no more than a tight leg after he was replaced by Ryan Christie in the 65th minute.
