HUGE BOOST: Incredible player declared fit for Celtic showdown as he trains ahead of Feyenoord clash.

Celtic’s match against Feyenoord in the Champions League was preceded by a workout for Nat Phillips.

On the opening day of the group stage, the Parkhead club faces Arne Slot’s team, and the Liverpool loanee appears to be in the running for the opening goal.

During the weekend’s 3-0 victory over Dundee, he was injured immediately before the break.

He rolled his ankle towards the end of the first half, Brendan Rodgers remarked following the game. He was only being cautious and was still scheduled to play for 60 minutes.

Phillips joined the Scottish champions on a six-month loan at the conclusion of the summer transfer window, and he will remain on their books through January.

Feyenoord manager Slot says that Celtic and Rangers cannot be compared.

Slot said he has a special regard for the Parkhead team because they are the only other league champions in the group when speaking to the media prior to the Champions League group stage match in Rotterdam.

The 45-year-old also believes it is pointless to draw comparisons between the two Glasgow teams given Celtic’s dominance in the domestic scene over the last ten years and the fact that the Ibrox club recently suffered a convincing loss to PSV Eindhoven.

“PSV won easily at home, but they lost away,” he remarked. In the most recent meetings, Celtic has only ever lost to them once.

“Celtic have improved over the past ten years; I believe they should be rated higher than Rangers.

“You will need to win practically all of your home games if you want to advance.

“I’m not going to give any of the three clubs a different rating, I promise. The only champions are Celtic, and for that you must have a lot of respect.
