Paradise Regained! Celtic v Inter – fan photos and footage

GB display from below with players cut out

It was an incredible night in Paradise when Internazionale of Milan came to visit for the first time four decades.

 

Celtic Park looked very different from the last time Inter arrived on Kerrydale Street

The Italians were met at the front door by this old foe

And this shy, retiring one!

The Green Brigade put on an incredible display commemorating that famous afternoon in Lisbon with a quote from the great man himself:

From the blank telly screen the displayed changed to show famous images from the Lisbon ’67 final

The Inter fans enjoyed listening to ‘You’ll Never Walk On’ alone before the game started:

Many forgot to sing their own songs, taken as they were with the spectacle of Celtic Park in full voice:

The action on the pitch wasn’t too bad either:

The Celtic support just could not get enough:

 

And the management team were enjoying themselves too:

Despite a brave and skilful performance it looked as though the Italians would run out 3-2 winners until John Guidetti decided to . . . after a three month gap . . . put the ball in the netti!

Guidetti strikes!

The joyous scenes as Celtic Park rocked will live long in the memory – the players showed their appreciation of the support too:

 

The team goes to Milan next week in the knowledge they can match Inter and maybe, just maybe, pull off a famous victory.  One that would certainly see them build up their own legends at Celtic Park and beyond.

And to remind the Green Brigade that Police Scotland would be placing special ‘focus’ on their activities on the night:

A truly unforgettable night in Paradise!  Here’s hoping the support will continue to turn out in great numbers as the team aim for 4 in a row against a spirited Aberdeen challenge.  Who would want to miss occasions like this?
