Schweinsteiger made his breakthrough in 2002 and it was the following year that the midfielder was in attendance at Celtic Park, taking his place on the bench as Celtic drew 0-0. The Celtic team that night was quite impressive: Larsson, Sutton, Petrov, Thompson, Agathe to mention a few. Although, Martin O’Neill’s side dominated they couldn’t find a breakthrough and Bayern celebrated at full-time as if they had won the game.
Schweinsteiger retired with Chicago Heat in 2019 after an incredible career. He will likely be watching Munich play Barca tonight while Celtic kick-off their Europa League campaign on Thursday against Real Betis.
