Watch: All The Goals From A Rocking Parkhead As Celtic Scare The Shite Out Of Man City
By Gavan Casey Updated

Celtic and Manchester City drew 3-3 in their Champions League group game, in a fixture which - if you've missed the action - might best relived by firing up a copy of FIFA 2002 and changing the 'game speed' to 'fast'.

Celtic Man City Goals

If you've not got a spare PS2 lying about, mind, we've got all the goals right here for you.

The Bhoys sensationally hit the front at Parkhead with a goal by future Henrik Larsson, Moussa Dembele, which, well - between us - was blatantly offside. Not that the green half of Glesga minded. What a moment.

Fernandinho responded for City with a slightly-less-scrappy-but-still-shite-enough goal, pouncing on a scuffed effort by Gundogan before slotting past Craig Gordon for 1-1. In fairness, it'd be wrong to say City have looked 'rattled' at any point tonight - Celtic have simply held their own.

Celtic though, it seemed, didn't give a shite about City growing back into the game, recklessly and admirably rampaging forward seconds later, forcing Raheem Sterling to put the ball into his own net after a flowing move.

Almost Barcelona-esque, you might say. Too soon? Not on this evidence.

But City hit back, as Celtic's Scott Brown was stripped of possession in midfield far too easily, and David Silva fed Sterling who displayed the type of composure and skill that he has since Guardiola's arrival in the summer.

Celtic retook the lead again at the very start of the second half, with Moussa Dembele controlling a missed City clearance before sensationally volleying over his own shoulder to find the bottom corner. Yeah, the boy can play a bit, alright.

But soon afterwards, City equalised once more. A wonderful move saw Craig Gordon produce a decent stop from Sergio Aguero, but the ball only reached tap-in specialist Nolito who rolled the ball into the Celtic net to level proceedings for the third time.

In truth, Celtic were probably just a Shunsuke Nakamura short of a historic victory, but Brendan Rodgers' men can take pride in being the first side to stop Man City winning this season. It's now just 10 wins in 11 for the Manchester club. Pathetic.
