    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.

    Figo played against Celtic in 1993 in Europe, same time Cadete played for Sporting too. Celtic won 1-0.

    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.

    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.

    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.
