When Celtic gain any sort of success, whether it be domestically or a good result in Europe, you can be certain, there will be ignorant English fans close by to try and put the club down.
Supporters of clubs who cannot brag about history and tradition but swagger about because how much they can pay for a mediocre player.
Celtic went toe to toe with Manchester City last season – both home and away, and when you consider the tweet below, it’s an astonishing feat.
Celtic won £2.948m for winning their title last season; they'd need 33 (THIRTY-THREE) Scottish titles to win as much prize cash as a single season finishing bottom of the English Premier League.https://t.co/Ihxit99hQX

In a world where money counts for everything and tradition is becoming marginalised this one extreme contrast should be enough for sensible people to applaud Celtic when they make any sort of mark in Europe.
We saw Everton spend over £140million on players this season and get dumped out of the Europa League like they were nothing.
The financial gap between Celtic and clubs like Stoke or Brighton is getting bigger with the grotesque amount of money flowing around down south. Each to their own of course, but maybe the idiots that feel the need to comment on Celtic’s success will take this into account before they bark out about their nans.
So here we go 33 in a row, if we save all our money up, we’ll have precisely what West Brom will be due when they wave goodbye to the Premier League.
Celtic should be applauded for being as competitive and even coming third in their Champions League group this term.
