boerrigter bBoerrigter swapped Amsterdam for Glasgow this summer, but is set for a quick reunion as Celtic, and Ajax were drawn together in a Champions League group of death, with giants Barcelona, and AC Milan.

The Dutch winger, left Ajax after losing his regular first team spot, and is now hoping to help his new coach Neil Lennon form a plan to bring down his old side.

The 26 year old said,  “I can definitely help the manager prepare for the Ajax game. I played there for two years and I know all about the team and all of the players.”

“I know how they play and who takes the free-kicks, everything. So I will speak to the manager and give him all the info he needs before we play them. Of course, we want to win that game – so I will tell him everything about Ajax.”

Celtic will host Ajax at Parkhead, on the 22nd of October, before the two meet in Amsterdam on the 6th of November.
