In a Twitter Q&A, the German was asked which away ground provided the ‘best atmosphere’? In response, the 37-year-old replied with “Celtic Glasgow. This was impressive!!”

The German midfielder was a part of Bayern Munich’s matchday squad for their Champions League clash against the Bhoys back in 2003.
