Celtic Park has always been a special place for Champions League football. History and lore insinuate it is one of the best, if not the best to play and watch Champions League football.
Just ask the likes of Xavi, Ferdinand, Messi, and Ronaldo among many who played at Celtic Park and were left enchanted by the Celtic atmosphere.
On Wednesday night, as Man City’s perfect run to the season came to an end, many were quick to note the ambience created by the Hoops faithful as having a telling contribution to the result.
It was a match which saw Celtic lead on three occasions. Although the match did end in a draw in the end, the Celtic players overran their more illustrious opponents at most times, pressing relentlessly with the crowd behind them.
Both set of managers praised the home fans for having created such a special atmosphere on the night. Social media was abuzz with fans purring over the fantastic atmosphere created by the home fans at Celtic Park.
Below are some of the best tweets following the game!

That Celtic Park atmosphere is something else, nothing like it in England I'm genuinely jealous of it. Too many corporates at top Prem games
