The Celtic supporters will be able to watch Stephen Welsh and Adam Montgomery in action with Scotland U21s tomorrow for free.

The Parkhead pair are in action for the young Scots against Denmark. BBC Scotland will be screening the game, which kicks off at 19:05 Celtic Park Time. The match can also be watched on BBC iPlayer or on the BBC Sport Website.

Tomorrow’s game is huge for Welsh, Montgomery, and the rest of Scott Gemmill’s young squad. Denmark look like being Scotland’s main rivals for second spot in their U21 European Championship qualifying group.

Scotland kicked off their campaign with a respectable 1-1 draw away to Turkey last month. So far, they’ve only played one match as Belgium set the pace with two wins from two.

The game is of huge importance to the group even this early. The runners-up with the most points will qualify for the competition directly. The rest will go into a play-off style format to try and earn qualification.

A win against Denmark tomorrow night will give Scotland an early advantage in any potential race for second spot.

Scotland U21 quest continues and Celtic fans can watch it for free

In the opening group stage match last month, Celtic fans had two reasons to watch. Welsh had been given the captaincy whilst Montgomery was making his Scotland U21 debut.

It remains to be seen if Welsh is still the captain heading into this one. It would seem unlikely that Gemmill will make any radical changes in that regard.

As for Montgomery, he also looks a cert to start against the Danes tomorrow. Especially considering he’s recently broken into the Celtic side and made a positive impression.

With all of the senior side’s World Cup qualifiers on Sky Sports, seeing a couple of talented young Celts in action for free is always a boost.

The U21s next match after Denmark will take place at home to Kazakhstan in November. This means Welsh and Montgomery will only have one competitive game to tackle before coming back to Lennoxtown.

Fingers crossed they can keep the spirits high after Sunday’s win in Aberdeen.
