Spartak hope for a 'tough fight' at Celtic

  • Intro:

    Spartak Moscow trained at Celtic Park on Tuesday as they finalised preparations for their final Champions League Group G game against Celtic.


    Spartak Moscow arrived in Glasgow hoping to end a disappointing Champions League campaign with a win against Celtic.The Russian side are guaranteed to finish bottom of Group G, having taken just three points from their five games so far.It'll be a case of deja vu for Spartak's Swedish defender Kim Kallstrom, who has played the final match of a Champions League group stage in Glasgow before.

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Kim Kallstrom, Spartak Moscow midfielder (on his experience playing in Glasgow against Rangers in the Champions League when at Lyon):

    "Last time we had to win with Lyon and we went through so it was a great night. Yeah, I remember it. I remember the atmosphere in Ibrox, that was fantastic. I imagine it'll be even better tomorrow. So for us, even though we can't go through anymore it's a big game, it's a Champions League game. We have a lot to prove to each other and also the fans, so I think we wont take it easy in this game and hopefully will be a tough fight."

    In Group G's other game on Wednesday Barcelona host Benfica, with the visitors hoping to better Celtic's result and join 'Barca' in the last 16.
