Copenhagen have taken pre-match social media content to the next level as they posted a Brexit themed video on the eve of their Europa League clash against Celtic.
Neil Lennon’s men travel to the Danish capital tomorrow night, with further European progress on their mind.
But it seems like still being in Europe is an achievement at this stage – and not for the reasons you may think.
The clever politics tinged message from the Danes, in association with Audi, was posted on Wednesday lunchtime and you can watch it below.
Dear @CelticFC ,

Copenhagen video is a friendly welcome to Celtic
The video begins with a young kid kicking a football around with his father.
It then features a phone video of Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon with the subtitles reading: “Scotland faces the prospect of being taken out of the EU against our will.”
Shortly after, the boy walks onto the playing surface at the Parken Stadium and a title reads: “At least Celtic are still in Europe.”
The video then fires into some action shots of Copenhagen players celebrating before finally displaying the message: “Welcome to Copenhagen.”
Words really fail to do it justice. Just give it a watch.
The video really takes pre-match content to a new level. It is clever, funny and also very welcoming of Celtic.
If the tie is half as sharp as whoever came up with that idea for the video, then we really are in for a treat over the next 180 minutes or so.
