Celtic Gift: ‘Tony Watt Champions League goal against Barcelona’. Limited Edition Framed Football Print of 50.
A day after Celtic officially recognised the 125th anniversary of their foundation, Tony Watt took his place in Celtic folklore.
At just 18 years old and costing a mere £50,00 from Airdrie United, Watt stepped from the bench to smash in Celtic’s crucial second goal.
Bringing on Watt was an inspired piece of tactical brilliance by the manager Neil Lennon.
Having taken the lead through a bullet header by Wanyama in the 21st minute, Celtic FC were in dreamland! Barcelona responded by bringing on Cesc Fabregas and David Villa, but nothing could break down the Celtic guard.
With just seven minutes left of normal time, the Hoops goalkeeper Forster dispatched the ball upfield. Xavi failed to cut it out and suddenly supersub Watt was clear. Showing incredible composure beyond his years, the 18 year old smashed the ball across the keeper into the back of the Barca goal.
At the final whistle, a glassy-eyed Celtic boss Neil Lennon said: “We will go down in the history books as the team that beat the best team in the world.”
And supersub Tony Watt, added: “It’ll take a couple of hours for this result to sink in…I just saw Victor Valdes and put it in the corner. I couldn’t believe it. We’ll look back on this and say ‘Wow, we’ve beaten Barcelona in the Champions League’. It does’nt get better than that”.
Even rock star Rod Stewart cried tears of joy as Neil Lennon’s brave Bhoys KO’d the Catalan masters. The 67-year-old singer is such a huge fan of Celtic, he even mentioned them in his 1977 song “You’re in My Heart.”
What a moment for Celtic. It was the stuff of legends.
