CHRIS SUTTON has retweeted BT Sports stunning footage of the 2001 Celtic vs Juventus game at Celtic Park.
The bhoys won 4-3 in a pulsating encounter which was an outstanding advert for Scottish football and just football in general back when it made headlines.
After Celtic being cheated out of a point in Turin, the bhoys upped their game for the return Champions League group leg.

Chris Sutton bagged two goals that night as Juventus huffed and puffed but Celtic ultimately blew them away.
Rewatching the footage gives us goosebumps.
This is when Celtic could go toe to toe with some of the best in Europe.
The gap between spending power was there but it wasn’t as big as it is now. Celtic always had an ace up their sleeve with Henrik Larsson.
It’s criminal that side never made it to the last 16 of the Champions League.
Celtic went out of that Champions League that year after the 4-3 victory with Porto beating Rosenborg 1-0 in the other tie to see them advance instead of Celtic.
Had Martin O’Neill’s side not been cheated in Turin it could have been a different story.
