Celtic Say Munich Police Praised Fans For Behaviour in City This Week

Celtic have said the Munich police have praised fans for their behaviour in the city this week.

The Scottish champions were out in the Germany city on Wednesday for their Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.

And despite the tough task of playing against one of Europe’s top teams, shown with the 3-0 defeat Brendan Rodgers’ men suffered, thousands of fans made the trip over to support the team.

Now Celtic have confirmed that Munich police have praised those supporters for their behaviour during the trip and have also said that Bayern Munich congratulated the club on their fans.

In a statement on celticfc.net, the club said: “Celtic supporters have been praised by the Munich police for their behaviour and congratulated by Bayern Munich for their backing of the team.

“Brendan Rodgers’ side faced Bayern on matchday three of this season’s UEFA Champions League, and thousands of Celtic supporters travelled to Germany to back the team.

“The city’s police praised the Celtic fans for their behaviour both before and after the game, while the fans inside Allianz Arena were vocal in their support throughout the 90 minutes despite it being a tough night for the Hoops, who lost the game 3-0.

“Celtic would like to thank our fans for their support of the team, as always, and the club is also looking forward to welcoming Bayern Munich fans to Paradise on October 31.”

That’s a positive report after previous issues involving supporters travelling to watch Celtic and other Scottish teams.

Fans of the Glasgow club will have one more away day to look forward to in the Champions League group stages when they take on Paris Saint-Germain in Paris next month.

The French giants won 5-0 at Celtic Park to kick off both teams’ UCL campaign so it could be a long night on the pitch for the Hoops.

But the short journey should make it an enjoyable away day for the travelling Celtic fans.
