The former England international told the Evening News: "I asked some of the players who had won there and quite a few put their hands up, so that's good.
"There's nothing we can do about the goals they've scored in the games they have played. They've been asked to beat teams and they've done that particularly well, but it's a really good test for us. That's how we look at it.
"I'm sure Celtic won't get round to thinking about us until later in the week, but we've got a bit more time. It's a game to look forward to, a fantastic stadium and terrific surface."
Celtic will play Barcelona in the Champions League before for the weekend fixture.
