The Danish Cops had this message for the Celtic Supporters after a trouble free trip.

“We want to thank the fans of Celtic FC – it’s been great having you guys
in town – no registered problems during the night. We wish you a safe journey
back to Scotland,” they tweeted.

This prompted former Manchester Utd legend Peter Schmeichel to have his say on the travelling Celtic Support. “Thanks to the magnificent Celtic fans and really great that the police in Copenhagen appreciates and applauds real football fan behaviour,” the Great Dane tweeted.

And rather than hitting Celtic with fines for flares, UEFA were last night instead applauding both the Celtic and Copenhagen fans for their ‘artwork’ ahead of kick-off in a match that finished honours even at 1-1.

And Copenhagen FC also had a nice message for Celtic after the match. “It was a pleasure to host you tonight. We look forward to visiting you for another exiting match. Have a safe trip home,” they tweeted.

And it was a case of old Friends Re-United when former Celt Thomas Gravesen was serenaded by the travelling Celtic Support at the Parken Stadium and responded by gesturing that he’s kept Celtic in his heart.

Ahead of last night’s game Tommy had this to say about the second leg next Thursday at Celtic Park.

“When you get to Celtic Park, Celtic know how to use it and how much pressure to put on. If the fans feel only one goal is needed the sound level rises and you have to be ready to experience an inferno.”
