Lithuanian outfit FK Suduva have been studying videos of UEFA Cup opponents Celtic because they cannot afford to send a spy to Glasgow. The club were expected to run the rule over the Scottish champions against Hibernian on Saturday. But Suduva official Petras Alisauskas has revealed those plans were pulled because the club did not have the money needed.
"We are not a rich club so we don't have the money to send a scout to Scotland," Alisauskas said. "We have financial difficulties which prevent us preparing the way bigger clubs can. We've had to make do with watching film clips but we have the money to go to Scotland for the match and we are hoping our poverty is just a temporary problem."
