It’s one thing when an opposing manager or player says good things about your stadium before a match but it’s a whole new proposition when one of the game’s greatest legends declares his love for a club’s ground over and over again.
Barcelona legend Xavi has never been shy about expressing his love for Celtic, and once even called the Hoops “too big” to have to go through qualifying rounds to progress to the group stages of the Champions League.
The 39-year-old has also spoken about his admiration for the atmosphere at Celtic Park on occasions in the past and still seems to hold the ground in high regard.
According to a couple of Hoops supporters, the legendary midfielder named Celtic Park as the best atmosphere he has played in when they met the Spaniard recently.
Having played in a number of stadiums all across the globe, the glowing recommendation from Xavi will surely be cherished by Hoops fans for some time to come.
