Cocky Sion midfielder Goran Obradovic believe that Fraser Forster is the weak link in the Celtic side and claimed that their Europa League opponents are not a great side.
Forster made his first Celtic appearance in three months against the Swiss Cup holders and looked nervy with a couple of punched clearances late in the match.
The Sion camp are very confident of progress next week and weren’t shy about sharing that belief with Swiss newspaper Le Matin.
Goran Obradovic said: “On August 25, Sion should try to take better advantage of hesitation as the goalkeeper Forster for his return, showed a remarkable restlessness.”
Getting into his stride the midfielder added: “Celtic did not impress me, it’s not a great team, I expected more. It is not like the great Celtic team of 10 years ago. I even think to say that Sion is not inferior to him.”
Sion seem unhappy with Celtic’s preparations for next week’s return match after their offer of three hotels was turned down in favour of one chosen by Thomas Cook.
The Swiss club have also gone public that Celtic will be using their own coach for the match rather than the offered by their hosts.
At a meeting of the Swiss Super League clubs in Berne today there was no progress made over the case of the Sion Six. FC Lausanne-Sport are expected to fullfill Sunday’s match with Sion under protest over the fielding of six players that are ineligible according to FIFA.
