Kris Commons could not resist a jibe at Rangers’ expense after learning Juventus would training at the facilities of Celtic’s fierce rivals.
Rangers have invited Antonio Conte’s men to train at Murray Park in the build-up their Champions League round-of-16 clash with Celtic at Parkhead on Tuesday.
“They can train in my back garden, it would make no difference. If they want to train at a Division Three training ground let them get on with it,” Commons told the Scottish Express.
The Nottingham-born midfielder said Neil Lennon’s men are full of confidence going into the fixture against the Serie A champions.
“Of course we fancy ourselves over the two legs. We’re quietly confident,” he said.
“We don’t have a swagger about it because we’ll go into both games as underdogs but we know we are more than capable of winning if we all play well.
“We’ve always been underdogs so for us to start taking the approach that we’ve made it would be the wrong attitude.
“We’ve gone into these games as underdogs, as people who are hungry for the game and want to prove our point and show the critics are wrong.
“I still see us as underdogs but we are a dangerous team to play against, especially at Parkhead. If all our top players are on song and the subs are making a good contribution too, then I think Juventus are in for a tough night.”
