Celtic’s Opponents Gladbach Change Twitter Name To ‘A German Team’ After Hilarious Glasgow Pub Fail

Borussia Monchengladbach.

I know what you’re thinking… that’s easy for me to say?

There’s no getting round it, it’s one of the biggest tongue-twisters in world football.

And today, ahead of Celtic’s Champions League clash with the Bundesliga side, Glasgow has finally admitted defeat in its attempts to get it right.

This hilarious image has emerged on Twitter which shows an advertising board outside a pub in the city.

It shows that after three failed attempts to spell the name correctly, the pub worker decided to label them simply, ‘A German Team’.

What’s even more hilarious is the fact that the image was picked up by the club’s official Twitter account – prompting them to change their name to ‘A German Team’.

Fair play to them for seeing the funny side to the gag.

It even got a reaction from rivals Bayern Munich, who found it rather amusing themselves.

And this isn’t the first funny Twitter interaction since the German side touched down in Glasgow yesterday.

The club’s official account had a little flirt with the Hoops after they quoted Brendan Rodgers praising their players in his pre-match media conference.

A win for Rodgers’ men at Parkhead tonight could really put them in the driving seat in their bid to secure European football after Christmas.


We look back on a big weekend of Premiership football and ask if Kenny Miller is a Rangers legend.
Plus, we back Celtic for a Champions League win and explain why the Hoops are so fancied:
