A video showing Celtic fans celebrating touching down in Valencia is going viral on social media.

Around 10,000 Hoops supporters are descending in Spain for tomorrow’s Europa League last 32 clash.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have an uphill battle to qualify, having lost the first leg 0-2 at Parkhead.

However, the fans will try and become the much needed 12th man at the Mestalla.

The video in question shows Hoops fans building up the anticipation for their Ryanair flight landing.

Once the plane lands, the fans break into a relatively new stadium hit by German DJ ‘Ninetoes’ and his 2013 instrumental ‘Finder’.

At Parkhead, the fans build anticipation by sitting down before breaking collectively into the tune.

The tune became popular having featured in a video by ultra group, the Green Brigade.

Fans will be desperate to give it an airing on Thursday night at the Mestalla following a shock victory.

Celtic fans in the news for recent behaviour

Reaction to the popular video, which has over 1,000 likes on Twitter, is mixed.

One person even called it ’embarassing’, which has been the buzzword towards the club recently.

Jubilant Hoops fans invaded the pitch at the weekend following Scott Brown’s late winner against Kilmarnock.

This has prompted a mass media reaction from Killie board members, players and some pundits.

Thursday’s contest is put on high security alert from Spanish cops and there will be a bigger police presence.

Fans will need to adhere to set regulations and words such as ‘ultra’ cannot be used on any banners inside the stadium.

Away fans will not be able to enter the stadium in the home section –  a block put in by Valencia themselves.

However, the club’s representatives did remark on the massive 10,000 following the Glasgow club will have in the city.

Supporters will need to behave themselves until the conclusion – the team needs all the backing it can get without having to worry about external matters.
