Celtic's Samaras insists: We want make history and break records

Celtic forward Georgios Samaras has urged the team to step up in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Scottish champions face the unenviable task of taking on Juventus in Turin in the Round of 16 return leg, after losing 3-0 in Glasgow three weeks ago, but Samaras is looking to make history with his teammates.

The Greece international has often been the main man for Celtic in European competitions, highlighted by the fact he has scored in every away tie this season, but he insists that all the Hoops players are in it together.

"Football is not a one-man show," he said. "We are a team, we lose as a team, we win as a team.

"Sometimes I score a goal and sometimes someone else scores.

"I don't really look for any (personal) records.

"It is always great to win a game and we want to make history and break records.

"We will be the first (Celtic) team to win in Italy.

"The most wins in Europe for Celtic in a season is eight and we are on seven at the moment."
