Arsene Wenger Expects Special Atmosphere At Celtic Park For Champions League Tie

The Gunners boss believes his players will be able to handle the occasion...

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is looking forward to travelling to Scotland to face Celtic in the Champions League play-off round on Tuesday night.

"You expect a massive support at Celtic," Wenger told Arsenal's official website.

"Scotland is always a very special atmosphere, a special noise in the stands. But we have played everywhere in Europe and we can deal with that. It will be down to us and how well we play."

Wenger admitted he has a lot of respect for his opposition but hopes his young side will get a result at Celtic Park.

"We don’t go into this game with fear. We go with respect for Celtic, but we know it is a very important game for us and we want to come home with a positive result," he explained.

"I always prepare my team first with determination and not with fear. We have played everywhere and have good experience in the Champions League. But every game is different and we know what we will face on Tuesday night – a very determined Celtic team with quality."
