“Everything is crazy” is what Alex Gorrin of Motherwell has to say about Celtic Park.
La Liga outfit Valencia will travel to Scotland as they face Brendan Rodgers’ side in the first leg of the Europa League last 32 clash on Thursday.
The midfielder gave an interview to Spanish newspaper AS to express his thoughts about the upcoming European fixture between the two sides and was asked to give his opinion on the atmosphere at the Bhoys’ home stadium.
“Celtic Park is impressive. People go crazy. Everything is crazy. It is a religion, they live football a lot,” the 25-year-old told Spanish newspaper AS.
“You can’t even imagine the decibels that exist in that stadium. I insist, it is one of the most beautiful stadiums where a footballer can play.”
There is a myth that home supporters at Celtic Park cheer a corner awarded to Celtic like a ‘half-goal’, something which Gorrin claims is true.
“It’s true that there’s a myth they applaud corners as if it were half a goal, and sometimes they do. I was lucky to see a Champions League match this season and it’s amazing,” he said.
The former Sunderland academy player has picked the duo as the two who stand out on an individual level at Celtic.
“I’ll go with Forrest and Brown. The first is skilful and with a goal, he has nine goals. And Brown is rocky, a wall, a guy hard to beat,” Gorrin added.
