Celtic assistant manager John Collins concedes he would rather face St Patrick’s Athletic if his club progress into the third round of Champions League qualifying.
|“We would probably prefer to play in Ireland” – John Collins|
The Hoops will either meet the Irish side or Polish outfit Legia Warsaw following a tight 1-1 draw between the pair in their first-leg.
For their part the Scottish champions
must build upon a narrow 1-0 away win at KR Reykjavik in order to get through.
“I think it’s a good draw,” Collins told BBC Scotland. “We would probably prefer to play in Ireland; closer, less travelling. But, first thing’s first, we’ve got to take care of the second leg.
“I would think [Legia Warsaw] should be favourites. I believe they spent a lot of money,” he added. “They’re a big club. St Pat’s must feel they’ve got a good chance of going through. I’m sure they’ll be highly motivated to play Celtic in the next round.”
