Coming off their impressive 3-3 draw against Manchester City, Celtic FC fans were confident a repeat could happen against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Unfortunately, André Hahn and Lars Stindl stole the show for the Germans, combining for both goals as the Bundesliga side ran away 2-0 winners at Celtic Park.
The defeat at the hands of André Schubert’s side left Brendan Rodgers and his players rock bottom of Group C with only one point after three games.
Result aside, there was only one topic the away players wanted to talk about, and that was the atmosphere at Celtic Park.
Speaking to the German press after the win, André Hahn, who scored Gladbach’s second goal of the game, tried to put in words what he had just experienced.
He said, relayed by Spiegel: “The volume was immense. As far as the atmosphere is concerned, it has surpassed everything I have experienced so far.”
Sadly for Celtic, their fans’ singing wasn’t enough to disrupt the Bundesliga side, and the Germans showed very little sign of weakness.
With three games left, Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to somehow gain a point when Barcelona come to visit in November, their last home game of the group stage.
