Celtic to meet Inter Milan as part of 125th anniversary

Celtic have organised a pre-season friendly with Italian giants Inter Milan as part of the Glasgow clubs 125th anniversary celebrations.

The Hoops will host the Nerazzurri at Celtic Park on July 28 in a match which will bring back memories of the Scottish outfits European Cup triumph back in 1967.

Celtic, with a team full of Glaswegians, defeated Inter in Lisbon to become the first British club to win the title and Neil Lennon feels this match will give something back to the supporters who witnessed that special occasion.

"History is something to respect and to cherish and we are delighted therefore to be celebrating 125 years of Celtic in such a manner," he told the club's official website.

"The match will be a magnificent event where we welcome some top players to Glasgow and, of course, honour those who have played such an important role in Celtic's past.

"It is magnificent that Celtic is able to bring such a big name to Scottish football and I am sure this will be an occasion which our supporters, across many generations, will wish to experience."
