|Match Pictures | Matches: 2008 - 2009 | 2008-2009 Pictures|
- 2nd string players filled out the teams with Riordan and Graveson (dead buried careers starting).
- Match played likely as a package from the recent Georgios Samaras deal
ReviewA second string Celtic v Manchester at home gave a run for the youngsters and the rejects in the squad (e.g. Gravesen and Riordan). An entertaining game so Manchester with the edge in possession and play, but the score was 1-1 at the end. Some fine performances by Caddis and McGowan, with the former in particular taking plaudits from the fans. League begins in a few days on Sunday v St Mirren at home.
Boruc; Hinkel, Cuthbert, O’Dea, Naylor; Gravesen (Caddis 46), Hartley (Millar 62), Donati, Riordan (McCourt 62); Vennegoor of Hesselink (Samaras 46), McGowan.
