Image for Celtic tweet puts Messi and Xavi in the picture

Ahead of their Champions League clash with Barcelona Celtic have been playing on incredible atmosphere awaiting their guests.

A visit to Glasgow’s east end tends to leave a big impression of footballers across Europe with Paolo Maldini, Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic among those to have highlighted playing at Celtic Park among their favourite footballing memories.

Earlier today Celtic tweeted a picture showing Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta holding a Celtic shirt alongside their compliments about playing at the home of the Scottish champions.

The night after that picture was taken Celtic celebrated their 125th anniversary by beating the acclaimed trio with goals from Victor Wanyama and Tony Watt.

Southampton keeper Fraser Forster was one of the stars of the show pulling off save after save with a performance that earned him a place in the England squad.

Tomorrow night Celtic are up against the odds again hoping to gain revenge for a 7-0 hammering on matchday one in the Nou Camp.

Under Brendan Rodgers the hoops have returned to the Champions League after a two year absence but with two points from four matches it’s unlikely that their European adventure will continue beyond Christmas.
