Celtic supporters have responded to a classy tweet from FC Copenhagen, which stated that they are looking forward to welcoming us back to Denmark in February.
One of the ongoing social media stories in the Celtic fandom these days is our relationship with rival European clubs who reach out and either look to be friendly, or more adversarial.
For the most part it’s all good fun and in this case Copenhagen kicked it all off yesterday, directing a tweet to the Hoops following our Europa League draw.

Celtic of course last visited Copenhagen in 2006, when Gordon Strachan’s fell to a 3-1 defeat, in a match that didn’t impact our ability to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League.
The home match of that double-header was won 1-0, thanks to a Kenny Miller goal.
That sentence alone shows just how much of another era those matches came in and it’ll be very different when the two sides meet on February 20th.
Despite both teams being ambitious and a lot on the line in the Round of 32 tie, proceedings are likely to be amicable and friendly in the build-up.
We’ve had our run-ins with Lazio this season and even Cluj were a bit of a nightmare in the press, so hopefully there’s more a celebratory air to this tie.
It’s nice to be nice after all, even in 2019!
These fans took to Twitter to respond to Copenhagen’s message, with many of them friendly in nature…
Friendly club and a great city to visit always.
