Celtic 0 United 0: Reserves held to a goalless draw in Glasgow
Posted by nickogs20 on November 6, 2008
United and Celtic’s reserve sides played out a goalless draw at the Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie yesterday afternoon as the two clubs’ second strings staged a Battle of Britain warm-up ahead of the big Champions League clash at Parkhead.
You can get a decent sense of how the match went from the Celtic site’s report, and they also list the United lineup, although – unless we started with just ten men – they seem to have omitted someone, presumably whoever played at left-back. Good to see Danny Welbeck back from injury, just in time for United’s Carling Cup tie against QPR next week.
We’ll continue to update this if/when we get more details, and MUTV will be showing highlights at various time throughout Sunday and Monday.
