SCOTLAND striker Steven Fletcher is getting ready to run John O'Shea ragged when the two Sunderland club mates collide at Celtic Park, writes Paul Hyland.

"I am looking forward to it, to be fair. I have been running rings around him in training, so if I could do it in the game, it would be fine," said Fletcher with a grin.

Fletcher has been eyeing this game since the draw was made and is pleased that the two Celtic nations are putting it up to Poland and Germany in Group D.

"It was a nightmare when I looked at the group to start with and they picked the first two and it was Germany and Poland," said Fletcher.

"But we have shown, and so have Ireland, that we are more than capable of getting through as well. The Ireland game is important for us."
