“Celtic is my Team” Premier League star says


James Milner has admitted he has an idea what to expect when he takes a Select line-up to Parkhead on Saturday, September 8.

The Liverpool midfielder will feature in the charity game that will unite his foundation with that of Stan Petrov and Celtic.

The former England international said: “I have played twice at Celtic Park. Once in a pre-season match when I was at Newcastle and once for England.

“But I feel I know Celtic well as my team-mate Andy Robertson never stops going on about them.

“He never lets up about Celtic. I thought I was bad going on about Leeds United, who are my team, but it’s Celtic, Celtic, Celtic non-stop with him.

“I am well-drilled about Celtic, the club and its history. I try to wind him up, but he just comes back with more.”

Robertson has also told Milner to refer to Celtic Park as “Paradise” while he is there!

The Scotland defender was relieved of his contract at Celtic Park at the age of 15 but made headway at Queen’s Park before moving on to Dundee United and Hull City, where his performances were impressive enough to make Anfield boss Jurgen Klopp spend £8 million to add him to his ranks a year ago.
