Video: WWE Superstars Sheamus & Rusev Tour Celtic’s Lennoxtown Complex and Meet Players

By now you’ve probably seen the picture of WWE superstars Sheamus and Rusev posing in Celtic strips somewhere online.

But now you can see what they got up to as they took a tour of the Parkhead club’s Lennoxton training ground last week.

The colossal athletes were kitted out in some XXL-sized green and white Hoops as they were shown around the place by first-team players and coaches, including Charlie Mulgrew and John Kennedy.


The Celtic stars looked genuinely starstruck by the giant heavyweight wrestlers as they posed for pictures.

Striker Colin Kazim-Richards could also come face-to-face in the ring with the Bulgarian Rusev after the monster grappler aimed a jibe at the forward’s poor scoring form since joining in January.

Thankfully the pair didn’t get into at the training ground.

The pair also met players including Emilio Izaguirre, Ryan Christie and goalkeeper Craig Gordon before the turn of departing manager Ronny Deila.

There was just enough time for them to take some shots at goal on the indoor pitch, with Rusev pulling off an impressive double save between the sticks.

Irishman Sheamus said: “We’ve had a couple of tours and we went to Man City and Inter Milan but I actually requested to come here.

“There’s no greater club than Celtic Football Club, especially with their history.”

You can check out the full tour in the video below.
