Football Talk: Gerrard's racism fear, 'Tuxedo' Tom Rogic
Your daily round-up of what's happening across Scottish football and beyond.
Steven Gerrard's teamtalk in Moscow will include more than just a warning about Spartak's threat on the pitch.
Last year, the Rangers boss was in charge of Liverpool's Under 19s when Nigerian-born attacker Bobby Adekanye was subjected to racial chants from supporters in a UEFA Youth League tie at Spartak's Academy stadium.
The club were found guilty by UEFA and forced to close part of their stadium.
With that experience behind him, Gerrard says he'll warn his Light Blues squad before Thursday's Europa League encounter to be prepared for what may come their way.
Later in the day, Celtic host RB Leipzig as the Hoops look to get their European campaign back on track.
Tom Rogic will likely prove pivotal if the Scottish champions are to prevail and Brendan Rodgers has heaped praise on the Aussie international in the build-up.
The Celtic boss reckons playmaker Rogic glides across the pitch that smoothly he could take to the field in a tuxedo.
