Ajax take on Celtic on Thursday 17th September, 2015, with kickoff at 18:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BT Sport 2.
Without getting too ‘back in the good old days’ about the whole issue, it is fair to say that previous games between Celtic and Ajax, say pre-Bosman, just for an example, would have been rather more exciting than this one today. The Scots are a feeder team for Southampton right now, while it has been 20 long years since the landmark ruling screwed Ajax out of their last truly great team, but this should still be a lot of fun.
The fans will be as good as anywhere on the continent, creating an atmosphere that should fall somewhere between terrifying and awe-inspiring, and will hopefully lift the players too.
