Former Celtic winger Simon Donnelly has told his old side's fans on Twitter that the atmosphere on Tuesday night at Parkhead against Anderlecht gave him "goosebumps".

Brendan Rodgers' side went into the game needing to avoid a defeat of less than three goals if they were to qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League after Christmas against the Belgian champions.

Jozo Simunovic's own goal in the second half succumbed the Hoops to a 1-0 loss in what was a disappointing display from Rodgers' men, but it was still enough to send the Hoops into the last 32 of the Europa League.

Responding to a video of Celtic's version of "You'll never walk alone" on Twitter, former Hoops ace Donnelly replied with one word; "goosebumps" as the Hoops become renowned once again in Europe for their overwhelming support.

Celtic suffered five losses in six games in Group B of the Champions League as they came up against Anderlecht, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich. However, their 3-0 win over Anderlecht in Belgium was enough to see them qualify.
