Celtic defender Stephen McManus believes the Scots can defy their horrendous away record in the UEFA Champions League to gain a positive result at Manchester United when they meet at Old Trafford next week.
Celtic have lost 17 of their 18 away games in the group stages of the competition but McManus says they will have no inferiority complex when they visit the European champions for the first game of a Group E double-header.
He said: "United are one of the best teams in the world. But we are going to be really up for it.
"We'll treat them with a lot of respect, but we'll go into the match in a positive frame of mind.
"Two years ago we beat them at Celtic Park and won the overall head-to-head over the two games. We need to take confidence from that.
"To get a good result in Manchester would put us in a decent position and we'll go there with the intention of getting that," the Scotland international told Celtic View.
