  2. Dembele, 13, named in Scotland squad

    Celtic's 13-year-old sensation Karamoko Dembele has been named in the Scotland under-16 squad for the Victory Shield matches with Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

    Videos of Dembele went viral after he made his debut for Celtic under-20s at the beginning of the month.

    Both England and the Ivory Coast have been showing interest in calling him up, but the Scottish FA have moved quickly to tie him to their colours.

  3. Former Hibs boss Alan Stubbs sacked by Rotherham United

    Stubbs has been let go less than five months in charge with the English Championship side bottom of the table with only one in and six points from 13 league matches.

    Former Celtic defender Stubbs, 45, guided Hibernian to the Scottish Cup last season and left to take charge of Rotherham in June.

    Rotherham, beaten 4-2 at Birmingham on Tuesday, have lost all seven away league games this season.

    club statement read: "Following a board meeting on Wednesday morning, it was felt that a change of first-team management was needed to give the club the best possible opportunity to preserve our Championship status."

  4. 'Borussia will be dangerous on the counter-attack'

    "Borussia can still provide a surprise here in Glasgow with players who are not so well known. Andre Hahn has a great fighting spirit. The captain Lars Strindl is very much the same. 

    "I think they will be dangerous on the counter attack - they have quick players and Celtic will need to watch for that. 

    "Gladbach are still hoping for third place in this group and if they get a point here they will be happy - if they don't then their European campaign is over, I think."

  6. Munster v Glasgow Warriors goes ahead

    Just to break away from the world of moment briefly, we have some rugby news to bring you.

    Munster have confirmed their European Champions Cup match against Glasgow Warriors will go ahead as planned on Saturday. 

    The match had been in doubt following the sudden death of Munster head coach Anthony Foley at the weekend. 

    Foley, 42, was found dead in his Paris hotel room on Sunday ahead of Munster's scheduled Champions Cup match against Racing 92.

  7. Does the Scotland squad have enough talent to succeed?

    Tweet @BBCSportScot

    Former Scotland striker Paul Dickov believes the supposed dearth of talent in the national team is overplayed, and we have enough quality players to succeed.

    Do you agree?

  8. Celtic v Borussia Monchengladbach

    Now my German isn't as good as it should be, but I reckon looking at these tweets Borussia Monchengladbach are looking forward to their Champions League clash with Celtic tonight.

  9. 'Scotland have the players to succeed'

    Former Scotland striker Paul Dickov has this morning been speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, and says he has been surprised by the struggles of the Scotland team in World Cup qualifying.

    “I’m slightly surprised," Dickov said. "I thought it was disappointing the European campaign. Looking at the (World Cup qualifying) group, having a great result in Malta, albeit Malta not being the best, I really expected them to kick on a little bit more. 

    "I know people say they’ve not got the talent there - I do believe they have. They’ve got players like Robert Snodgrass, Shaun Maloney, people like Charlie Adam who can’t even get in the squad, who are all playing in the Premier League. They’ve got a lot of talented players in there. 

    "Just look at Northern Ireland and what Michael O’Neill has done there. They’re getting some success. Hopefully we can sort it out.”

  10. Borussia's danger men

    Celtic v Borussia Monchengladbach (KO 19:45)

    Liam McLeod

    BBC Sport Scotland

    Borussia Monchengladbach arrive in Scotland out of form for their Champions League match against Celtic and with an injury list that has taken a sledgehammer to their squad.

    Without this season's star-man so far, Thorgan Hazard, and striker Raffael, the potency of The Foals has suffered a blow.

    News broke on Monday that Danish international defender Andreas Christensen - on loan from Chelsea - has picked up a gluteal muscle injury and will also miss the trip to Celtic Park.

    Then on Tuesday, USA international Fabian Johnson withdrew due to illness.

    On the long-term injury list are Switzerland international Josip Drmic, who has been out since March and former Atletico Madrid defender Alvaro Dominguez.

    It is hardly ideal preparation for head coach Andre Schubert as his team try to stem a tide that has seen them go without a win in three matches.

    As a club, they also haven't won away from home in a Champions Cup tie since getting the better of Red Star Belgrade in 1977. The current team has continued that trend with just three wins from their last 18 matches away from Borussia-Park.

    So who will likely be charged with the task of overcoming a boisterous Parkhead and an in-form Celtic?

  11. Get Involved

    @BBCSportScot #bbcsportscot

    Brendan Rodgers says Celtic proved they belong at Champions League level with their performance in the 3-3 draw with Manchester City, but now wants them to "back that up" with victory over Borussia Monchengladbach.

    So can Celtic overcome the Bundesliga outfit this evening? Will the Germans, as Erik Sviatchenko suggested, be "frightened" of playing at Celtic Park?

    Get in touch with your thoughts about the game and anything else going on in Scottish football.

  12. Celtic are favourites - McDonald

    Celtic v Borussia Monchengladbach (KO 19:45)

    Phil Goodlad

    BBC Scotland

    The former Celtic striker Scott McDonald believes his old side are in the "unusual" position of being favourites for a Champions League match tonight.  

    Borussia Monchengladbach arrived in Glasgow match missing a number of their leading players through injury, including star player Thorgan Hazard. 

    "Celtic are very comfortable with the team they select at the moment, it picks itself," McDonald told BBC Radio Scotland's Good Morning Scotland show.

    "In terms of how they've been performing you'd like to think that it will continue tonight. But it's always a danger being favourites and the expectations of the fans. They're going to have to live up to that tonight.

    "They have massive confidence (from the 3-3 draw with Manchester City in their last Champions League game) but I think they already had that going into the game.  I think that showed the rest of Europe the potential the club and players have."
