I'm sure there'll be a warm reception for Souness at Celtic... and I can see him relishing the whole thing, home and away.

I can see a lot of Liverpool fans wanting old friends Celtic to win this one... but plenty of my sympathies lie with Blackburn, David Thompson / English team I guess.
Football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple - Bill Shankly.
