Celtic friendly announced

Mark Hughes' men will complete their build-up for the Barclays Premier League campaign with a prestigious friendly against Celtic at the City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday, August 8 (kick-off 3pm).

The visit of Glasgow's former European champions means that City will warm up for the season with an intriguing Old Firm double header, with the Celtic match preceded by a midweek clash with neighbours Rangers at Ibrox Stadium.

Watched this the Blues since 66, we have never played either of the Glasgow team's at home since then.
Wonder Why ?
It will be trouble trouble and more trouble.
Who ever dreamed up this wheeze need's a good talking to.
It is not even an attractive fixture to us against a bunch best suited to the Championship.
Hordes of Jock's on the pop in a civilised part of the country.
Its a nothing match to us and the interest will be reflected in pitifull ticket sales to boot.
Samaras a prize draw... do me a favour.

Haw haw haw. Celtic not prestigious enough for you? Newsflash: You follow a team that hasn't won a trophy of any description since 19 canteen, perennial underachievers and mid table makeweights who get bought by Sheik Instevens and now all of a sudden you're a massive club. Dont waste my time. Just because you've got money it doesnt make you a big club. Win something then brag about prestige. For all I'm no fan of your neighbours across the city they have some achievements to back up their boasts. You've got a big chequebook and bugger all else.
Big clubs win trophies, not financial pissing contests.
