hoop idols

November 5, 2008

I watched the Champions League match against Celtic and Manchester United a few hours ago on TV, and I have to say whenever the Celtic Park faithfuls sing the “You’ll never walk alone” anthem it sends shiver down my spine. Especially when they cut the music out and the crowd continues singing. Surreal.

With over 60,000 fans singing and lifting their scarves up, it is no surprise that Celtic Park was voted the UK’s favourite sporting ground by BBC Radio Five Live. A fact backed by Sir Alex Ferguson ahead of the clash in his interview with the Sunday Mail.

I was hoping to find a video of the pre-match sing-along against Manchester United, but alas there are none online. However, I did find one against Barcelona, a tribute after the 11th March 2004 bombings in Madrid.
