Celtic march on to Leicester for the next pre-season fixture against City at the Walkers Stadium. After Saturday's disappointing 0-0 draw at Fulham, The Bhoys will be looking to come home with a bit more to be happy about later tonight.

Gordon Strachan has spoken ahead of the match, claiming more of the young players will get a chance in tonight's game. We could see the likes of Shaun Maloney, Craig Beattie and Alan Cuthbert getting a run out from the start, but these games are reasonably important for the new players, who need games together.

Hopefully, we will give the young players a chance in the second half, as I would like to see the likes of Maciej Zurawski and Jeremie Aliadiere linking up-front.

Saturday's game was a disappointing result, but there were many plus points to be taken from it. The team look confident and appear to have a stronger will to win under the new boss. Hopefully they can get their first win together tonight.

Tonight's game is another chance for Celtic to show teams in England how well we can perform, on and off the park. Here's to a victory for Strachan and the Bhoys.
