Zabaleta and his Manchester City teammates were held to a 3-3 draw by the Scottish giants in the Champions League on a dramatic night at the famous Glasgow venue.
"We were saying before the game that this is a difficult place to come and get a result," said Zabaleta.
"They are a club with a big history and a different team when they play at home compared to when they play away.
"The atmosphere was incredible and it was a great game to watch for the fans."
City trailed on three occasions throughout the match but were always able to find a way back into the contest to eventually grab a point on the road in Group C.
