Premier League club Manchester United would feature their new kit for the first time in today’s match. The new kit featuring collar has been inspired by 1970’s jersey. Manchester United fans are also eagerly waiting to see new signing Chris Smalling for the first time in action.

Though it is a friendly affair, both sides would like to win the match and put on some good performances ahead of the next season. Celtic last season failed to win the Scottish Premier League title and is now determined to retain the title from Rangers next season.

Similarly, Manchester United also lost the English Premier League title last season to Chelsea and is looking to win it back next season. So, both sides would like to have a good preparation ahead of the next season, but at the same time would look to avoid any new injury.

Manchester United has left a number of star players like Wayne Rooney, Michael Owen and Gary Neville at home. Some of them have been granted a rest following their international duties in the World Cup, while some of them are recovering from their injury problems.

However, still Manchester United features the star players like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Dimitar Berbatov, Nani and goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar. Alongside these experienced members, the Red Devils squad also includes some young but talented players like Federico Macheda, Danny Welbeck, Jonny Evans and Corry Evans.

Celtic also has some quality players like Scott Brown, Georgios Samaras, Marc Fortune, Shaun Maloney and some others. Overall, it seems less likely that it would be a one-sided affair. Rather, there is every possibility this could be a highly entertaining match.
