Celtic can beat Juventus, insists Dalglish

The legendary former Hoops striker believes the Glasgow outfit can replicate their spirit and performance against Barcelona earlier in the season when they meet the Bianconeri

Kenny Dalglish sees no reason why Celtic cannot emerge from their Champions League last 16 clash with Juventus on the winning side.

The Hoops have already claimed a notable scalp in this season's competition, beating Barcelona 2-1 in the group stage in front of a raucous Parkhead crowd, and the former Liverpool boss believes the Bhoys can replicate that against the Serie A holders on Tuesday evening.

Dalglish said: "I think it's fantastic what Celtic have done. Beating Barcelona, you wouldn't have even contemplated predicting that.

"They've been fantastic, they got over the line by beating Spartak Moscow 2-1 in their last game - two fantastic nights at Celtic Park. There'll be another one against Juventus.

"They'll all be looking forward to it, they've tasted the success. They want to taste more of it.

"It's a really difficult tie. I saw them play at Chelsea, Juventus. They were fantastic. So it's a really big game for them. It's a big ask, where there's a will, there's a way.

"Of course you can stop anybody playing, you've just got to be lucky or they've got to have a bad day or whatever.

"It's more about Celtic than Juventus, it's how they play and how they go about their work that's more important."
