Cahill insists Chelsea players won't mind Drogba celebrating goal

Gary Cahill says Chelsea players won't be offended if Didier Drogba celebrates scoring for Galatasaray tonight.

Drogba said he might not celebrate should he score against the club where he was a star for eight years, but Cahill would not be concerned even if the Ivorian chose to do so.

"First of all Didier is someone I admire as a guy, he has a lot of respect at this football club and rightly so.

"Emotionally it is going to be strange for him I would have thought. I am sure he is in two minds about celebrations with the feeling he has for the club and the respect the fans have for him.

"Personally if he celebrates a goal it wouldn't offend me, to score in a Champions League game is a great thing, but hopefully he doesn't score.

"We are focusing not just on one individual player but on them as a team and on trying to get a good result."
