Ferguson salutes Celtic Park atmosphere

Ferguson salutes Celtic Park atmosphere

Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson believes Parkhead has the best atmosphere of any football stadium he has been to - and his opinion is shared by World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash, Ferguson paid tribute to the Celtic fans and their ability to inspire the players. He also highlighted the fact only Barcelona have won at the ground as evidence that the midweek match will not be straightforward, even though his side have recently hit red-hot form.

Ferguson told the Sunday Mail: "Parkhead is THE best I've experienced. The players were just talking about that the other day - Vidic and Ronaldo were saying it's the best atmosphere they had ever played in. Credit to the supporters for that because they don't half raise the roof.

"It's obvious the Celtic players react to it given the results they've had. You are going to have to run that extra yard or you will soon be found out by them. It won't be easy. Only Barcelona have won at Parkhead so that tells you everything."

However, despite hailing the atmosphere, Ferguson thinks Celtic's post-Christmas European campaign will be in the UEFA Cup, not the Champions League - with United and Villarreal reaching the last-16 of the premier tournament.

I have a soft spot for Fergie due to the reason he was kicked out of Ibrox. Quite ironic that Scotland's two greatest managers were both Protestant yet grew to despise everything Rangers Football Club stood for.
