    Brendan Rodgers is confident Celtic can cope with the pressure of the Champions League play-off against Hapoel Beer Sheva and reach the group stage.

    The Scottish champions host the Israeli side in Wednesday's first leg.

    Celtic have lost at the play-off stage in the last two seasons, consigning them to the Europa League group stage.

    "We're very calm but we understand that there'll be moments when we have to cope with the pressure, I see no reason why the players can't," said Rodgers.

  12. Balotelli to Wolves?

    Latest transfer gossip

    Mario Balotelli could move to... Wolves? It's not as totally mad as it sounds. Sort of. I'm confident you can accept the idea as a distant possibility without digging too deeply into the Italian's reputation for bizarre misadventure.

    Various people are drawing this conclusion because of Balotelli's recent reported conversations with Jose Mourinho - who is said to have given his former Inter Milan protege some career advice. 

    The key connection here is Jorge Mendes. Mourinho's agent is a well connected guy and has links to Wolves' new owners.

    They've got Walter Zenga as manager now, have signed a Benfica midfielder, an Iceland striker, Congo's captain... So.... Balotelli next?

    I'm not having him going to Port Vale though.

    "In the first half against Watford I didn't like this half because we didn't play our game. But in the second half you could see good football."
