We look back at the last few days of football, starting with the Uefa Super Cup, which ended with an Adrián save in the penalty shootout and a Rocky Balboa impression from Jürgen Klopp.

The Carabao Cup is back – a few big names have gone out already. Celtic crashed out of the Champions League, but still have an extra Europa League life after losing 4-3 at home to CFR Cluj.

We talk retirement with Marcus Bean, who’s just hung up his boots – regrets, proudest moments, the future – and we speak to Sid Lowe about the upcoming La Liga season and to Archie Rhind-Tutt about the returning Bundesliga.

Back on Monday.

This Celtic supporter can hardly watch.
