Celtic manager Gordon Strachan:
"We're playing against players we've never seen before. I think the players enjoy that. It's exciting to see a new team come to Celtic Park.
"It's exciting for them as well. They'll probably come along and say they're going to enjoy it, which is fine.
"Also, it can be a scary place at times if you're on the receiving end of a good performance. There is the chance to enjoy it but also apprehension as well, I'm sure for the players because we can play some good football at times.
Queen's Park manager Gardner Speirs :
"The main thing from our point of view is that we go there and make it a contest and that's what our players are prepared to do.
"Hopefully we'll be playing in front of a big crowd. I know we've sold all of our ticket allocation so hopefully there'll be a great deal of backing from our support.
"We're also hoping that the Celtic fans come out in numbers to help create a great atmosphere."
