VIDEO: Andy Murray And His Davis Cup Team Take On Celtic in a Crossbar Challenge

Andy Murray recovered from his US Open heartache in slightly unfamiliar territory – Celtic Park.

The tennis world no.3 and his Davis Cup team mates are in Glasgow for the competition’s semi-final against Australia in the East End’s impressive Emirates Arena.

And the Brits decided to take in Parkhead and take on some of Celtic’s stars in a game of The Crossbar Challenge.

Representing the Scottish Premiership champions was Stuart Armstrong, Gary Mackay-Steven, Callum McGregor, new signing Jozo Simunovic, John Kennedy and Ronny Deila. And they squared up against the cream of British tennis with Andy Murray, Jamie Murray, James Ward, Kyle Edmund, Leon Smith and Dominic Inglot.

There were even a bit of mind games before hand, but surely the pressure was all on the footballers in this one?

Andy Murray’s known to be a keen footballer….

Speaking after narrowly missing his attempt, Andy told Celtic TV:

We’ve been practising for a while before we came over! But it’s great to be here.

This is obviously one of the most famous football grounds in Scotland and it’s great to get the opportunity to get on the pitch and meet a few of the players. And it’s good for our whole team to come over and have a bit of fun.

We played at the Emirates back in March and it was packed. We had unbelievable support and it was a great atmosphere and hopefully it will be the same again in a few days.
