YOU'VE GOT NO CLASS CELTS; Hendrie: We've nothing to fear.

Cheeky Alloa boss Tom Hendrie last night told Celtic's superstar squad: You have no class.

Hendrie's bunch of Third Division part-timers square up to the multi- million pound Parkhead giants in the Coca-Cola Cup on Wednesday.

And the prospect doesn't have cool boss Hendrie quaking - because he reckons Celts are nothing special. He rapped: "Quite frankly, Celtic's midfield doesn't have the same quality as before.

"They certainly lack a quality playmaker now that John Collins has gone and Paul McStay is injured.

"I would be much more worried about facing Rangers in that area of the park.

"Up front Celtic are hugely dangerous with guys like Pierre van Hooijdonk, Jorge Cadete and Andreas Thom capable of scoring from anywhere.

"Paolo di Canio also seems to be coming onto a game. But in midfield they are nothing special."

Celts are facing a massive midfield injury crisis for the UEFA Cup tie with Hamburg at Parkhead on September 10.

McStay, and fellow-injury victims Phil O'Donnell and Scotland Under-21star Stuart Gray are all certain to miss it.

Boss Tommy Burns is now praying Tom Boyd, Tosh McKinlay, Jackie McNamara and Jorge Cadete come through tonight's World Cup qualifiers unscathed.

The second leg in Hamburg will be played on Tuesday, September 24 at 6pm so it can be shown live on German TV
