Neil Lennon led the twitter tributes following the emotional charity match for Stiliyan Petrov yesterday.
The Celtic boss put in a useful first 45 minutes but it’s unlikely that Scott Brown or Joed Ledley will be overly worried about their place when they return from international duty.
Lennon was in direct opposition to Petrov in centre midfield although both men did enjoy a few ventures further forward.
Ten of Celtic’s Seville side started the match with the back three of Joos Valgaeren, Johan Mjallby and Bobo Balde as uncompromising as ever- especially Bobo.
After recovering from his exertions Lennon tweeted: ”Incredibly emotional day yesterday..thanks to all the fans there who made it so special..and the players and celebs for giving up their time.”
Despite it being Petrov’s day attention among telly viewers and others seemed focussed on One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson who vomited pitchside after a clash with Gabby Agbonlahor.
That incident overshadowed a hat-trick from Dimitar Berbatov that had more than a few of the fans in the ground wondering how good it would be to see the Bulgarian regularly in a Celtic shirt.
As well as past and present favourites from Celtic and Bulgaria there were a number of other celebrities that enjoyed their day in paradise including popular Sky Sports pundit Kris Camara.
The one-time Stoke City and Leeds defender enjoyed himself so much he had to stay out all night to catch his early morning flight back to London then onto Kiev for Champions League duty.
Kamara tweeted: “ Just gone 5ish still at it with Stan & co aaaarrrrggghhhh my flight to London is at 6.45 – its foggy in the bar pic.twitter.com/TTzww6Sntw.”
Getting into the spirit of the day Nicky Byrne of Westlife tweeted: “Then to play in @StanPetrov19 charity game at parkhead and score booooom ! What a gentleman and beautiful family too.”
Comedian John Bishop put in a Sebo performance, seeing a second half penalty saved by Rab Douglas but that didn’t detract from a special day.
