Mick McCarthy is obviously still a big Celtic fan – as his raving about Celtic Park last night proved.
The English manager is perhaps better known for his spells in charge of Ipswich Town, Wolves, Sunderland, Millwall and Ireland.
But he’s also a former player who had a two-year spell with Celtic back in 1987.
And the affection he built up for the club during that time obviously hasn’t left him.
McCarthy appeared on Irish TV last night for their coverage of Celtic’s 2-1 Europa League victory over RB Leipzig.
It was his words as the players walked out the tunnel that Hoops fans will love:

McCarthy would have loved the Celtic performance as they beat RB Leipzig to keep their Europa League last 32 hopes alive.
Kieran Tierney scored the opening goal of the game before Jean-Kevin Augustin equalised late on for the Germans.
But Celtic got their winner just seconds later when Odsonne Edouard tapped home Ryan Christie’s brilliant cross.
