“Celtic have got off to a brilliant start scoring 25 goals and winning all their league games,” she told BoyleSports.
“I definitely think they can score and maybe they are even good enough for a share of the spoils. The Celtic fans could suck the ball into the net sometimes.”
“In the first game you are sounding out the opposition, it can always be a bit cagey and sometimes it will go against what you may expect.
“Real Madrid were comeback kings last season and if they continue their form at the end of the season then they may have enough to see them through. But it’ll be a narrow win if it does come.”
Sawyer also believes Rangers have their work cut out in their opening Group A match away at a free-scoring Ajax side who have won all five of their opening games in the Eredivisie.
“There have been big name exits from Ajax with Antony and Lisandro Martinez going to Manchester United.
“But so far they haven’t been hampered and Steven Bergwijn has scored six in his last four matches. You just feel they have enough to get a first win on the board; Rangers would be absolutely delighted with a point.”
