Some Celtic fans react to bizarre Copenhagen video

Copenhagen have released a rather bizarre promotional video for their clash against Celtic in the Europa League tonight.

The Danes published a video that showed First Minister Nicola Sturgeon stating that Scotland had been taken out of the EU against its will. It also displayed a message towards the end of the video stating “At least Celtic are still in Europe”. You can watch it for yourself below:

It’s clearly meant to be a complimentary gesture towards Celtic. However, it does come across as a tad odd in the build-up to tonight’s Europa League last-32 first-leg match in Denmark.

Regardless, sections of our support appeared to absolutely love it as they reacted to the video on Twitter. Here’s a look at some of their comments:

You can’t deny there’s real respect between the two clubs. Social media has proved to be a useful tool with regards to building relationships with other teams, and Copenhagen appear to be using it too.

You can’t ignore the similarities between the two clubs either. Both are the biggest in their respective countries yet are always fighting against the European superpowers and mega-rich leagues to build their reputation. Granted, they don’t have half the historical success we do.

However, there’s absolutely nothing friendly about a Europa League last-32 clash. This is a chance for these 11-14 Celtic players to put us into a glorious position to make history.

Copenhagen, meanwhile, won’t be looking for a wee kiss and cuddle come kick-off either. They’ve managed to progress to the last-16 of the Europa League once before in the 2016-17 season. However, that’s the only occasion they’ve managed it, and they’ll surely be pumped up for tonight’s match.

The atmosphere inside the Telia Parken will be rocking too. Copenhagen have announced that tonight’s match will be a sell-out. That shows just how much the game means to or rivals this evening.

So fair play to them for coming up with this video. It’s fairly witty and is meant as a respectful gesture towards our club. Come kick-off, however, the niceties will be firmly in the rear-view mirror.
