Rod Stewart Cried After Celtic’s Champions League Victory Over Barcelona (Videos)
When Celtic visited the Camp Nou to take on Barcelona in a Champions League Group G match a few weeks ago, they played the Spanish giants tough, but their efforts were foiled four minutes into second-half injury time, as a Jordi Alba marker gave Barca the 2-1 victory.
Celtic fans knew that their team had thrown away a brilliant opportunity to make their mark on the world stage. After all, many of them were almost certain that it would be a while before they get another opportunity to steal a point from one of the world’s best club teams, if not the best.
Well, Celtic had their rematch against Barcelona last night at Celtic Park, and as you probably guessed, they weren’t able to come away with one point…
…Nope. Rather, they came away with three!!!
Yeah, that’s right. Celtic did the unthinkable and beat Barcelona by a score of 2-1, thanks in large part to goals from Victor Wanyama and Tony Watt, and some brilliant goalkeeping from Fraser Forster.
So, how big was this victory? Well, for starters, it gives Celtic seven points in four games, which is good enough for sole possession of second place in Group G at the moment.
And then there’s the historical significance of the victory, as it will undoubtedly go down as one of Celtic’s finest victories in European club competition, and perhaps one of the most significant wins in the club’s history.
Just how significant was it, you ask?
Significant enough to make Rod Stewart shed a few tears. Check it out:
Amazing, isn’t it.
In case you can’t tell from all the tears, “Rod the Mod” is a huge Celtic supporter, which he even mentions in his hit song, “You’re In My Heart.”
And Stewart’s tears of joy weren’t the only instance of awesomeness to come from this unforgettable match. There was also this moment before the game when the Celtic fans sang “You’ll Never Walk Alone” together.
