YouTube influencer Ninh Ly has rated the Celtic Park Stadium tour as second only to Paris Saint Germain- in a close-run contest.
The Ultimate Bucket List channel has travelled extensively across Europe, digging into club rivalries and taking a look behind the scenes on club tours.
Ly caused a stir last week when he visited Celtic Park and Ibrox stadium wearing the ‘wrong’ club colours but there was a notable contrast in the reception that he was given on opposite ends of the city.
Speaking to The Sun he explained:
Asked if he only had time to do one stadium tour out of Rangers and Celtic which one would it be, he said: “Celtic, and it’s not even close.
“Don’t get me wrong. The Rangers tour was actually very, very good. The tour guide was very, very nice to me and you got to learn a lot about Rangers and it was very educational. As far as the facilities are concerned they have that retro, traditional charm and I quite actually liked that. It screams character and history. I like all of this stuff.
“If you are around the Ibrox area, if you are a neutral or happen to be around Glasgow and you do want to do the tour of Ibrox I highly recommend that you do but if you only have time to do one out of the both of them – go to Celtic.
“This stadium is bigger, it has a more modern-appearance, which might appeal to some and technically there is a lot more stuff to see but the real difference is how you are treated. I was so shocked, literally surprised that they were so nice to me even though I was wearing a Rangers shirt. They welcomed everybody.”
Celtic’s stadium tours attract fans of the club as well as tourists to Glasgow who have looked on at European nights on television.
With players such as Lionel Messi, Paolo Maldini and Zlatan Ibrahimovic singing the praises of the ground there is a regular stream of advertising in praise of the stadium.
Despite having three sides of the stadium completely redeveloped in the 1990s the Board Room and other areas are largely untouched down the years although the dressing rooms have been completely modernised.
