Man City defender Zabaleta: Celtic atmosphere was incredible

Pablo Zabaleta was full of praise for the show Celtic put on at Celtic Park on Wednesday night.

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.
