Steven Gerrard was a popular figure at Celtic Park last night.

During his playing days the former Liverpool skipper enjoyed a matchday or two watching the hoops but last night he was on BT Sport duty.

Before the match he was pictured with Leigh Griffiths while afterwards he seemed as happy as John Hartson with the hoops 5-0 win over Astana.

Great working with the main man tonight.. @stevengerrard ????????

While a trip to Celtic Park is on the bucket list of almost all top players it is also one of the top trips among pundits.

With English football becoming more and more sterile the raw passion of 60,000 Celtic fans roaring their team on is something unique with the aura of the hoops being passed down the generations.

Add in the Brendan Rodgers factor and it’s easy to see why Gerrard enjoyed himself so much with the prospect of at least three more thrilling nights under the lights of the Champions League.
