AC Milan hero makes Celtic Park admission

ZLATAN Ibrahimovic has admitted that he will be disappointed to not play in front of a full Celtic Park on Thursday evening as Scottish fans remain locked out of stadiums.

The Italian Giants will travel to Glasgow for Thursday’s Group H opener and Zlatan believes that he deserves to take in one of the best atmospheres on Europe and that the Celtic support deserve to see the veteran in action.

The 39-year-old told The Daily Record that he wanted to experience the atmosphere again, having done so in 2001 with Ajax.

“Celtic is one of the great atmospheres and great stadiums of Europe. Zlatan deserves to play in front of the Celtic fans and the Celtic fans deserve to be able to see Zlatan play live.

“I have played in a full Celtic stadium before and I wanted to experience it again.

“With the way the world is at the moment that is not going to be possible – but maybe I will get another chance again.”

Zlatan returned from a two-week Coronavirus quarantine at the weekend to score twice in the Milan derby. Despite his age, he still has the ability to really hurt teams and as the second best Swedish footballer ever, he is definitely going to be a threat on Thursday night.

Thursday would have seen a full house as two of Europe’s biggest names compete. However, Coronavirus has meant that supporters need to settle for watching games on TV for now.
