Celtic fans will look forward to seeing their favouries play Inter Milan again
Celtic will have the chance to beat Inter Milan again as they did back in 1967 when the sides meet in a pre-season as part of their 125th anniversary celebrations. The game to be played at Parkhead on 28 July will bring back memories for many of the European Cup final when Celtic became the first British side to lift the trophy. Many of the 'Lisbon Lions', will be invited back for the game and current manager Neil Lennon hailed the arrangement as 'magnificent' for the club.He said: "History is something to respect and to cherish and we are delighted therefore to be celebrating 125 years of Celtic in such a manner. The match will be a magnificent event where we welcome some top players to Glasgow and, of course, honour those who have played such an important role in Celtic's past. It is magnificent that Celtic is able to bring such a big name to Scottish football and I am sure this will be an occasion which our supporters, across many generations, will wish to experience."
