Janko could make Celtic Park return

His new side Young Boys are potential opponents for Celtic later on in Champions qualification. The Swiss champions enter the tournament at the Playoff stage and are likely to be one of four opponents we can face if we make it that far.

It would be quite fitting if Celtic and Janko met again in the Playoff round. The defender had one of the worst solo displays ever seen when we narrowly crept over the line in Be’er Sheva in 2016.

Janko gave away a penalty and was also at fault for one of the Israeli side’s goals in the 2-0 defeat.
