first_imgCoach-loads of Celtic fans from Donegal are currently en-route back to Donegal after another thrilling night of European action at Celtic Park.Hundreds of supporters from Donegal departed early yesterday morning for the Europa League last 32 clash between Celtic and Inter Milan.Some will now be nursing headaches after a sensational six-goal encounter that rekindled memories of old. The fixture between these two sides represents Celtic’s greatest day when in 1967 the Lisbon Lions defeated the Italian giants to become the first British side to win the European Cup.Celtic Park was provoked with nostalgia prior to kick-off when surviving members of that Lisbon Lions side were paraded around the pitch before kick-off.Inter raced into an early two-goal lead, but Celtic stormed back and had the stadium rocking.Inter regained the lead just before half-time, but John Guidetti scored in the 94th minute to send Celtic fans into delirium. Both clubs have suffered a fall from grace recently and don’t always compete in the group stages of the Champions League.However, Celtic’s performance has brought renewed hope and optimism back to their supporters that they can enjoy more nights like this in the future.Life-long Celtic fan Jamie Sweeney from Dungloe posted the following on his Facebook timeline, “And people wonder why I love this football club. What a nite in Paradise!!“Deserved so much more than a draw, but we will go to the San Siro next week and put them out on their home turf!!“God bless Ronny our leader and god bless the Celtic family!! When I see the Celtic!!! Jim McGuinness took his place in the dug-out alongside the rest of the management staff and he will head off to the San Siro with the rest of the squad for the return leg next week.COACH-LOADS RETURN TO DONEGAL AFTER YET ANOTHER FAMOUS EUROPEAN NIGHT AT CELTIC PARK was last modified: February 20th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:celtic fcceltic parkdonegalfansInter MilannewsSportlast_img
