Luka Modric’s private Celtic message

It wasn’t just the stadium, fans and atmosphere that impressed Luka Modric during his midweek trip to Glasgow.

The serial Champions League winner has experienced just about everything in his career from being a teenager in Croatia through to playing at the very highest level deep into his thirties.

In comparison Josip Juranovic is a bit of a later developer, just over two years ago he left Hadjuk Split for Legia Warsaw but on Tuesday night he was sharing the stage with his international skipper.

Discussing Modric’s reaction to facing Celtic, Juranovic told The Sun:

I spoke with him after the game and he was telling me the crowd was amazing and that we played well, especially in the first half, and that we need to continue like that.

What can I say? He’s captain of my national team, a really good person and you saw that he’s a really good player, too.

Celtic fans are used to being complimented on big European nights but it is good to hear one of the genuine greats compliment the players and how they actually play the game.

The task now for Juranovic and his team-mates is to play to the same standard against Shakhtar Donetsk to take their first point or points in Group F.

    Tbf….. we’re ahead of the level he wants us at…..

    big Ange is here just over a year and we’re giving the champions of Europe a real game…..

    It’s still early in his journey.

    If we play the way we did against Madrid we can easily beat our other 2 opponents as long as we take chances. I’m hoping with not playing at the weekend we are match ready for Wednesday.
    We know Ange will be training the bhoys hard ready for the game.
