    Have you ever experienced, heard or read something about Celtic that is so bizarre that it makes you question the nature of reality?

    I'll start with a couple of recent examples:

    The President of Albania is a die-hard Celtic supporter.

    Our support is embroiled in a conflict with Benito Mussolini's granddaughter.

    Winning the European cup with a whole team of lads from the east end is pretty surreal even for football back then.

    Some of our fans actually doubted Neil Lennon and showed a fuckload of disrespect to him in the summer. Bonkers.

    Still think the most bizarre thing about Celtic, or at least being a Celtic fan/player is that we go from playing Europe's best in front of 60,000 on the Tues/Weds/Thurs to playing at Hamilton in front of 10,000 that same week.

    The contrast in quality and surroundings is quite stark.

    Scarlett Johansson drove a Ford Transit van past Celtic Park as supporters were leaving a 0-0 draw with Hibernian. :giggle1:

    Find it bizarre how uefa deem it appropriate to continue this years Europa league when we already know the winners.

    Snoop Dogg asked Celtic to let him be a mascot for a Champions League Round of 16 game against Juventus.

    2011 - final day of the season, scum were 3-0 up and our chance of winning the league was gone...

    Celtic Park was absolutely jumping, we sang our songs and supported our team and manager because we were the real winners. Something Inside So Strong, it wasnt the end, it was only the beginning. And look at us now.

    So proud to be at Paradise that day. Surreal experience that you won't see anywhere else. Ever.

    I * love you Celtic

    Some of the songs we sing around Christmas time, last year I heard shakin Stevens, "merry Christmas, * THE HUNS!"

    and then Last Christmas by Wham, but the lyrics changed, "this year, to save me from tears, I'll give it to Ronny Deila!"

    True .... I watched the movie she was filming for a few days ago ..

    ‘Under the Skin’. A bit tedious. Don’t think any of the CP footage was used.

    Jozo Simunovic, our number 5, scored a trademark Caesar headed winner in the 67th minute the game after our greatest ever number 5 passed away.

    And until the day I die I will never forget it. The script writers would have binned it for being so ludicrous.
