Celtic: Hoops fans reminisce about UEFA Cup semi-final win in 2003 - Celtic

Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to reminisce about their team’s UEFA Cup semi-final win back in 2003.

Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to reminisce about their UEFA Cup semi-final triumph against Boavista back on April 24, 2003.

It was one of the great European nights of Celtic’s recent history.

The Hoops had given themselves everything to do in the second leg after being held to a 1-1 draw by their Portuguese counterparts in the home tie – a game in which Henrik Larsson missed from the spot after initially scoring the equaliser.

But the Swede made amends for that big-time out in Portugal. With Boavista having scored that all-important away goal, Celtic knew they had to score, and for much of the game, didn’t look like doing so.

However, with just twelve minutes remaining on the clock, Larsson stepped up to the occasion, firing home from twelve yards and sending the Hoops into their first European final in 33 years.

And with the moment still fresh in the memory, Celtic fans celebrated the 17th anniversary of that special night by reminiscing about it on Twitter.

Celtic fans, what are your memories of that famous night in Portugal? Let us know in the comments below!
