Solskjaer set for Airdrie


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is heading for Airdrie with his Manchester United reserve side to take on the 9-in-a-row-chasing Celtic reserves.


Unlike some supporters Celtic fans aren’t short of big matches to enjoy at the moment with the Champions League in full swing alongwith the SPL.

The game at Airdrie’s Shyberry Stadium kicks-off at 3pm on Wednedsay November 5

A reserve team clash between Celtic and Manchester United should be a game to savour with both clubs fielding teams comprising of players brought through their academies from basically worldwide scouting networks.

Solskjaer himself was spotted as a teenager by United to add to the intake that included David Beckham, Paul Scholes, the Nevilles and Ryan Giggs whilst Celtic have brought through Stephen McManus, Shaun Maloney and Aiden McGeady in recent years with Cillian Sheridan, Darren O’Dea and Paul Caddis await the chance to impress.

A fortnight ago Celtic drew 2-2 with Spurs reserves at Lennoxtown with the ‘London’ club fielding a couple of million pound youngsters.

With supporters travelling from far and wide for the big match in the evening a trip to Airdrie wouldn’t really be recommended but there are exceptions.
