We continue our Stars of the Past series with Slovakian genius Lubomir Moravcik.
Moravcik is a player of which there is practically no awareness of outside of the leagues he played in, but those that did see him play still remember his talent with great fondness.

On Wednesday 7th of November, a night was etched in Celtic history. Another famous scalp to go with the countless others of the past. Celtic stood tall and went toe-to-toe with Barcelona and came out as victors, propelled by the strong Wall of Noise that greets all opposing teams when they enter Celtic Park. The birth of this current Celtic squad can be drawn back to the summer of 2010 when Celtic’s most valuable asset was sold and with that money the current Celtic squad was built. A squad that has now squared up to the best the world can offer and has come out with absolutely no fear in their eyes.

1) James is destined for greatness
I have already profiled this boy as a player to watch in this season’s tournament before matchday 1 but his performance and goal last night put to bed any lingering doubt that he is a truly special player. He possesses so many qualities that are often so rare in such a young player – his eye for a pass, ability to draw opposing players in to him, finding space in congested areas, knowing exactly when to dribble or when to move on possession, composure under intense pressure – these are to name just a few of his qualities. In my opinion the only other player of a similar age group who can match him is Neymar of Santos. Of all the players aged 21 and below currently playing in Europe, none of them are playing at the capacity James is.

Some of these players are already quite well-known, others not so much:
Fraser Forster – Celtic
The young English goalkeeper played a big role in making Celtic’s journey through the qualifying rounds appear on paper much more comfortable than it actually was. Standing at 6ft 7, he pulled off numerous crucial saves against both HJK Helsinki and Helsingborgs and the same will be required again if Celtic are to stand any chance of progressing beyond a group consisting of Barcelona, Benfica and Spartak Moscow.
Toby Alderweireld – Ajax

It is no secret that Rangers are in deep financial trouble. Thanks largely to the disastrous tenure of owner Craig Whyte, who oversaw a devastating combination of financial mismanagement and mortgaging the clubs future earnings, Rangers went into administration in February owing millions of pounds in unpaid taxes, and there were real fears that they may have gone out of existence as they couldn’t guarantee at the time they had the money to fulfil their fixtures.
