Scottish Invasion as 4,000 Celtic Fans Arrive In Manchester For City Clash

Hail hail...


If you're wandering around the city today and spot a sea of green, do not adjust your calendar.

It may seem like St. Patrick's Day but really it's just an invasion of vociferous football fans who have traveled to support Scottish side Celtic in tonight's Champions League clash against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. 

Over 4,000 fans from Glasgow and other Celtic-supporting hotspots such as Dublin and Belfast are expected to have made the trip and it should make for an interesting atmosphere in the city today.

Here's a taster of what to expect...

The Hoops lie bottom of Champions League Group C with no chance of progression to the knockout stage while City are already through which means the match is little more than a formality. 

Just weeks ago, there was major traffic disruption when when fans of Dutch side Feyenoord visited Manchester United so it may be wise to expect similar today.
