  • Ronny Hail, Hails the fantastic Celtic support in Baku

    Ronny Hail, Hails the fantastic Celtic support in Baku

    By: Newsroom Staff on 06 Aug, 2015 12:47

  • CELTIC manager, Ronny Deila was not only delighted at the display of his men on the pitch last night against FK Qarabag, but also with the performance of the Hoops fans in the Tofiq Bahramov Stadium.

    Once more, despite being thousands of miles from Paradise, the Celtic support played their part in securing the 0-0 draw in Azerbaijan that puts the Hoops through to tomorrow’s draw for the UEFA Champions League play offs.

    He said: “I’d like to thank all our fans who supported us so brilliantly at the match last night. I know there were a number of fans living and working in Azerbaijan and it was obviously a rare chance for these fans to see the team in action.

    “I also know that many more made the very long trip to Baku, not an easy journey but our fans were there once again.

    “It is magnificent wherever we go in the world to know we have such tremendous support and I can assure you that this makes a big difference to myself and the players.

    “Knowing that we have our fans in the stadium giving us such passionate support is something which we are so grateful for, it is what makes Celtic such a special club.”

    He added: “The atmosphere was fantastic last night, a credit to both sets of fans supporting their respective clubs.

    “We played a very good team with energy and some great players but over both legs I think we played well and deserved to go through to the play off stages, an achievement which now lets us look ahead to tomorrow’s draw with excitement.  

    “Thank you all again to the fans who were there last night and of course the thousands of others at home too who I know were supporting us.”
