'One of the toughest', 'Sick' - Celtic fans worry over potential blockbuster CL qualifier
Celtic fans on social media are concerned at the prospect of possibly facing Norwegian champions Rosenborg for the second season in a row in the Champions League qualifiers.
If both sides manage to get past their first round ties, they will meet in the second round, in a potential tie that was revealed on the official Champions League Twitter account.

The Bhoys triumphed 1-0 on aggregate after the matches between the sides last season, a James Forrest goal sending the Hoops through, in a tie which the Norwegian side could well have put to bed at Celtic Park, but missed a host of chances.
Hoops fans seem a bit concerned about the tie, with one fan claiming it was ‘one of the toughest’ draws that the Bhoys could have drawn, and called for help from former Hoops boss Ronny Deila.
Meanwhile, another supporter was more confident, placing faith in Hoops talisman Scott Brown to get the Hoops through what looks to be a very tricky tie.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to the potential tie against Rosenborg:

One of the toughest ones we could have had. Not easy. Assuming Rosenberg, they’ll be half way through their season again. Currently sitting 3rd after 13 games (7 points behind the leaders Brann). Time for agent Deila to help out.

The Hoops face Armenian champions Alashkert in the first qualifying round, with Rosenborg facing Icelandic champions Valur Reykjavik.
Should the Bhoys manage to overcome both Alashkert and Rosenborg, they would still have another two rounds to navigate before reaching the lucrative group stages of the Champions League.
