Man City boss Guardiola excited to experience Celtic Park

Pep Guardiola is eagerly anticipating his first trip to Celtic Park.

The Spaniard takes his Manchester City side to the Glasgow venue to meet Scottish giants Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

While Guardiola has taken in many of Europe's biggest and best stadiums during his playing and coaching career, he has never been to Parkhead and admits his debut visit holds some excitement.

"Everyone talks to me about the atmosphere," he said.

"I'm looking forward to playing here. I know how strong they are here.

"I spoke with my old players, and they have said this is a special environment.

"We've started well and tomorrow we have a big opportunity to step forward. This group is so tough.

"I'm so happy with the performance against Gladbach but it is just one game."

City defeated Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 in their opening Group C match while Celtic were hammered 7-0 by Guardiola's former club Barcelona at Camp Nou.
