‘Lincoln Red Imps stars will struggle to get time off for second Celtic game!’

first_imgThe chairman of Gibraltarian club Lincoln Red Imps has revealed to talkSPORT that some of his players could struggle to get time off for the second leg of their Champions League qualifier against Celtic.The semi-professional minnows recorded a shock 1-0 home victory over the Hoops on Tuesday to consign Brendan Rodgers to defeat in his first game in charge of the Scottish champions.Many are calling the result one of the worst in Celtic’s history, though they are expected to make amends when the Gibraltar champions travel to Parkhead for the return leg next Wednesday.With a total of 30,000 living on the island, you can fit the entire population of Gibraltar into Celtic Park twice over, though Red Imps chairman and president Derek Alman doesn’t expect many residents to make the trip.However, he fears some of his players might also have to stay at home as well.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast following the win over Celtic, Alman said: “We’re still struggling to come to terms with the tie to be honest. It’s very surreal.“I reckon about 40 or 50 people will make the trip over. It’s quite short notice with the flights and other arrangements. I’m not sure if we’ll get 50 or maybe 100 coming over.“If we get an invite from Celtic for all our people, we’ll get them all on a ship over to Scotland!“But of course all the players will have to take time off from their employers, so it’s going to be a struggle for us to get the employers to give them release!”last_img read more
