LEGIA WARSAW manager Henning Berg claimed to be envious of Celtic ahead of their Champions League third qualifying clash in Poland tonight.

Berg, who played for the Parkhead side's traditional rivals Rangers a decade ago, will come up against fellow Norwegian Ronny Deila who is looking to take the Scottish champions into the group stages of the competition.

Berg outlined what he believes to be the differences between the two clubs, while insisting his side have a chance to take a lead to Scotland for next week's return game at Murrayfield.

"Celtic are a little bit further ahead of us as a club," he said. "We would like to be in Celtic's position and that is something we strive to do.

"Be able to compete in Europe every year and sell players for the money they sell players, and buy players for the money they buy players.

"That is our goal.

"We are not there yet and tomorrow will be a big, big test but a good test and I am sure everyone here is looking forward to this game.

"In any game we feel we have a chance and we know at our best we are a good football team."
