Celtic star Nicolas Kuhn aims Rangers dig over Ibrox celebrations amid 'indescribable' atmosphere

Celtic's Nicolas Kuhn has aimed a dig at Rangers for "celebrating like champions" following the 3-3 derby draw at Ibrox.

Back in April, the Glasgow rivals played out a thoroughly entertaining six-goal thriller, sharing the spoils after the Hoops twice took they lead. They scored two quick fire goals to seemingly take command before Gers managed to fight back in the second half. Then Adam Idah thought he had won it with a stoppage time strike, but Rabbi Matondo went up the other end and curled in a pearler to make it even again.

It kept the Ibrox side within a point of Brendan Rodgers' men with a game in hand and it seemed as they thought they were in the driving seat as they celebrated on the pitch afterwards. But they went on to take just one point from the next two games against Ross County and Dundee, and the team from across the city stayed consistent for the rest of the campaign and won the title.

There has already been plenty of criticisms for the reaction that day at Ibrox and Kuhn is the latest to make a point over it. The Hoops winger has given an interview about the season's end in is homeland of Germany.

He said: "In my first derby against Rangers, I was in the starting eleven. We played away at Ibrox. In the first ten minutes of a game like that, you can hardly breathe. But we quickly took a 2-0 lead. The atmosphere at that moment was indescribable. You had to be there to understand it.

"It ended 3-3 and afterwards they celebrated as if they were already champions. But after that we dominated the league, played great games and got all the points we could. And then there was the derby at Celtic Park.

"Suddenly you're playing with 60,000 fans behind you and not 50,000 against you. We scored two goals, Rangers got a red card and we brought the result over the finish line. That was the big step towards the title.

"The Scottish Cup final win was crazy. You can't really explain what happens in the stadium. When you lift the trophy in front of 50,000 people, those are memories that will last forever.

"When Celtic asked me to move, I did everything I could to make this move happen. It was my chance to win the championship and prove myself at a huge club. I wear the No.10 shirt at the club.

"That is also a statement from me - and of course, there is a lot of pressure on me. Next year I will play in the Champions League for the first time, that was always the goal. Now no one can say that I am lacking something. It may have taken me a little longer, but I have reached the top level."
