Sergei Fursenko: "Celtic are a worthy opponent"

The Zenit President reacted to the UEFA Europa League draw.
Сергей Фурсенко: «„Селтик“ — достойный соперник»
We have already played against Scottish clubs, like Glasgow Rangers, and been quite successful. If we set ourselves the highest goals, then we must get passed teams like this. I think this was a good draw for us. 

If it's not a secret, who did you think we'd face? 

Honestly, I thought that this would be our draw. 

Do you agree that this is the tie of the round in the UEFA Europa League?

Oh sure! The football will be very exciting and you are absolutely right. Celtic are a worthy opponent!
