Lazio boss makes revelation regarding Celtic fans

Simone Inzaghi the manager of SS Lazio looks on prior to the Pre-Season Friendly match between Celta de Vigo and SS Lazio at Estadio Balaidos on August 10, 2019 in Vigo, Spain.

Celtic beat Lazio inside a raucous Parkhead last Thursday night.

Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi knew that Celtic Park would be rocking last week.

The Italian giants travelled to Glasgow for a Europa League clash, but Neil Lennon's side edged out a 2-1 win after a last-minute winner from Christopher Jullien.

The big Celtic defender lifted the roof off Parkhead and although it wasn't in the Champions League, it was a very memorable win nonetheless.

In truth, any home win in a European competition is made memorable by the Bhoys' faithful and Thursday was no different.

 

And Inzaghi has revealed that he brought his oldest child with him to the game, knowing in advance that it would be quite a spectacle.

He told The Scottish Sun: "The Celtic game is a match I will be telling my children about for many years. In fact, I actually brought my oldest child with me because I knew how good it would be."

That win took Celtic top of Group E on seven points after three games, one ahead of Cluj and four clear of Inzaghi's men in third.

There are at least three Europa League games left for Lennon's side this season but, with their advantage, they should definitely progress into the knockout phase of the competition.

The fourth round of group fixtures comes on November 7, with Celtic going to Rome for the reverse game.
