This year Scotland are represented in the Champions League by Celtic. After Rangers were thrown out of Europe and put to the bottom of the Scottish Leagues , everybody thought that the Scottish game would go in a massive decline. With no Celtic and Rangers matches occurring the revenue for Scotland would take a massive hit. Unless Celtic did well in Europe and they have done exactly that by finishing second in their group to Barcelona in a very successful group stages that seen Celtic defeat Barcelona 2-1 at Parkhead in Glasgow.

Celtics win against Barcelona was one of the greatest moments in the clubs history and one that the fans will never forget. The group was very narrowly decided with four top teams in there. Barcelona and Celtic went through with Benfica getting the Europa League spot. The money that Celtic will get from this will definitely help the economic situation in Glasgow and also it is where a top club like Celtic belong , playing with Europe’s elite clubs. It will be tough for them to get through as they can get teams in the next round like Man United and Borussia Dortmund. But Neil Lennon and his side will relish the chance to play against the best and maybe cause an upset just like they did against Barcelona. They will most definitely have there fans behind them with an electric atmosphere as usual.
