The Gunners' last line of defence believes that it will be a "tragedy" if the north London club fails to beat the Bhoys in the Champions League play-offs...
"[Beating Celtic] is vital for the club, not only for the prestige, but also for the money," the shot-stopper has been quoted by the Irish Independent as saying.
"It would be a tragedy not to be in the Champions League."
Meanwhile, manager Arsene Wenger’s words are contrasting - he insists that he is not looking at the financial aspect of the star-studded tournament.
"It's not crucial financially, it is crucial in the sporting side - we want to play with the best," 'The Professor' remarked.
Wenger has never failed to deliver Champions League football in his 13-year spell at the forefront of the Gunners' cannonade.
