Let’s face it, the only chance we may be getting to watch Celtic in the coming weeks may be on video games or DVDs.
Neil Lennon’s men won’t be playing live games for the foreseeable future, after Friday’s suspension of Scottish football, but the club seem to have that covered in a crazily coincidental social media post.
They took to Twitter on Friday morning, prior to the big SFA/SPFL announcement, to post footage from official partners PES and their ‘Iconic Moments Series’.
The football game, seen as a traditional rival to EA Sport’s FIFA, have created a game version of former Celtic hero Shunsuke Nakamura’s iconic goal against Manchester United in 2006.
The footage sees Naka bend a terrific free-kick over the Red Devils wall and into the top corner, just as he did during our 1-0 Champions League win all those years ago.
The detail in the clip is brilliant, with Naka even wearing the exact kit he did that night.
You can watch the video below.

What other iconic moments would look great on PES?
Well any brilliant Celtic moment would translate well to a games console.
Naka’s strike is one of the most iconic Celtic goals of this century but there are numerous others that would go down a treat.
Chris Sutton’s volley against Juventus, Tony Watt against Barcelona or even Olivier Ntcham’s winner in Rome earlier this season.
Now you’ve given us some of this content, we want to see more PES.
It’s not as if we’ve got a great deal to do over the next few weeks anyway.
