Today is decision day for Celtic - does Sacha Kljestan don green or not?

Sacha Kljestan, the lanky Chivas USA midfielder and occasional US Men's National team starter, has wrapped up his trial with Glasgow Celtic and is back in the US Men's National team training camp...and we'll find out soon enough if his play this week impressed Gordon Strachan enough to earn a spot on the SPL's leaders' roster.

I think the move would be great experience for Sacha. He's always demonstrated excellent vision and skill, the piece of his game that is lacking in my mind, is his speed of decision making.

While the general talent level of the SPL may not be dramatically different than the MLS, certainly the match day pressures of playing at Celtic park alongside former Champions League contenders, should hone his game quite nicely.
