Discuss Great players that never played against Celtic in the Celtic Chat area at TalkCeltic.net.
I could be wrong, but i think Cafu played against us with AC Milan. I was going to put him in my starting X1 but had a sneaky feeling he played against us.
Think he did looking back. My mistake.
They did and they got sent home with their tails between their legs :bbpd:
Figo played against Celtic in 1993 in Europe, same time Cadete played for Sporting too. Celtic won 1-0.
I'm sure lahm played against us when we had them in the group stage, years ago?
Maradona, be loads to add..
Surely Puskas would have been in the team for Di Stefano's testimonial?
Edit: He wasn't. Great shout. One of my fav old players.
Cannavaro (May have for Napoli in pre-season 1993, cant find team, probably did)
Some players mentioned have played us Beckenbauer, Matthaus, Makelele, Vieira, Totti, Drogba. All in friendlies. Beckenbauer in 1966 and 1981 and Matthaus in 1997 and 2000 both at Celtic Park.
Redondo and Hierro played against us in 1995 in a friendly V Real Madrid, Emilio Butragueno and Canizarez also played in that game.
Bergkamp played us twice, 1989 for Ajax - Danny Blind also played in that game, was Tommy Burns last game and in 2002 for Arsenal.
Cantona did in 1997.
Puskas, Gento and Di Stefano did in 1962 at Celtic Park, Puskas scored they beat us 3-1.
Ruud Gullit played against us in 1982, Feyenoord won 4-3, he scored the opening goal.
Think thats about all.
I thought i had you with van basten when Charlie nick scored and we won 2-1 out there i think? But no, your right he was injured..
Aye, Van Basten, Ronaldo, Crespo, Schweinsteiger, Raul, Thiago and Diego Costa are ones we've played their teams but they never played. Costa was on loan, Schweinsteiger was on the bench, the others were injured/not in their squads.
Crespo we could have played 3 times, 1997 with Parma and 2004 and 2006 with Chelsea but he never played any the games.
Remember Hartson playing for Arsenal at Parkhead in a pre season friendly. Put himself about and had a handbags with Stubbs???? (l think)
Crespo did actually play against us 2004 for Milan, came on as a sub for the last 30 minutes in a 0-0.
1996, 2-1 to Celtic O'Donnell and Donnelly, Dixon scored for them. Paul Merson also played in the game. McStay, Thom, Cadete, Di Canio and Van Hooijdonk for Celtic.
Sutton may have played against Celtic at Celtic Park in August 1994 too, he signed for Blackburn in July that year for £5million. Cant find the teams but I imagine he played.
So Hartson, Sutton, Larsson, Di Canio, Cadete, Robbie Keane, Bellamy and Van Hooijdonk all played against us. Larsson, Di Canio, Keane, Bellamy and Van Hooijdonk all scored against us lol Brozek also played against us for Wisla in 2006.
I can use google too :bbpd:
Parma friendly at home, did cannavaro not play for them then?
