Chris has had a ringside view of it over the last four years.

He watched the embarrassing defeats to AEK Athens, Cluj and and warned about the consequences of failing to prepare.

Those inside chose to do nothing. Faced with what many fans felt was the biggest rebuild in 30 years the Celtic board decided to add Liel Abada to last season’s squad after selling Jeremie Frimpong, and Kris Ajer.
