Nevertheless, Celtic are looking forward to playing at the Bernabeu.

“It’s one of the iconic stadiums in the world and hopefully we give our fans something to be proud of,” Postecoglou said. “The fans have been outstanding this whole campaign and they have supported us home and away.

“Everyone talks about the home nights at Celtic Park on European nights but our away support is something we’re really proud of.”

Postecoglou also spoke about the rich history between the two clubs.

“There’s history between these clubs with Alfredo Di Stefano’s testimonial but to be here again at the Bernabeu,” the Greek-Australian manager said. “Hopefully it’s a game that’s memorable for everyone including our supporters.”
