Neil Lennon Quote on Celtic’s Win over Barcelona

The players are heroes, they are heroes to me. I can’t speak highly enough of their performance tonight and they will go down in the history books of the club as the team who beat probably the best team in the¬†world.

~ Neil Lennon, 8 November 2012

Celtic 2 – 1 Barcelona

Granted it was just the group stages, but it was still as big as Lennon says if Celtic make it to the knock-out round.

 

Xavi Quote on Celtic’s Anti-Football Style

Xavi, Iniesta, and Messi prepare for a trip to the Anti-Football Paradise of Glasgow

Celtic pulled out a historic victory of Barcelona, reminding everyone that an organized defense is a good idea. I really like that later in the same interview Xavi attempted to throw Celtic a compliment by saying, “And we know what the atmosphere will be like because Glasgow is a paradise for football but we are all experienced players and it will not worry us.” You mean, a paradise for anti-football, right?
