Addison: Celtic could do to Kilmarnock what Barcelona did to them

first_imgMiles Addison admits he’s worried Celtic could inflict a similar scoreline on Kilmarnock in two weeks’ time after the Scottish champions’ mauling against Barcelona, writes Craig Turnbull.Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar put on a devastating display of attacking football as Celtic opened up their Champions League campaign with a 7-0 loss to the Catalan giants.In contrast, the Hoops have swept all aside in their path on the domestic front, with Rangers the latest to feel the full force of their attacking power after a 5-1 defeat at Celtic Park.And Addison admits they could be on the wrong end of a similar scoreline the Hoops suffered at the hands of Barcelona, at Celtic Park on September 24. “Last night showed that Celtic were way off that standard,” Addison said.“But in saying that we’re at Parkhead in a couple of weeks and some of the boys were saying the scoreline could be similar when we play them.“The standard is different but it is progress for Scottish football that they are in the competition.”He added: “We’re slightly worried because I’m sure they will still be angry from the result.” Tenth-placed Killie have had a testing start to the season after a huge overhaul of players in the summer, and Addison believes some of the youngsters that have arrived at Rugby Park have had their eyes opened to the harsh reality of Premiership football.“It feels like an English changing room now at the minute, there’s not as many Scottish boys,” he said.“If you look at the players that have come up they are all young. It was a difficult pre-season and I think a few of the boys’ eyes are open now.“From last season there is a different vibe in the changing room and I’m not sure if that’s because there has been a big change.“The squad has been improved and I think that sends positive vibes through the club.”last_img
