Rio Hargreaves Champions League memories


Rio visited Celtic’s famous ground on two occasions with the Reds, both in the Champions League group stage – firstly a 1-0 defeat in 2006, before drawing 1-1 in 2008.

The six-time Premier League winner has fond memories of the 2008 game, where he recalls seeing United team-mates Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick’s brilliant reaction to the noise generated inside the stadium moments before kick-off. 

“That was definitely mine, I remember Fletch and Carras when the first whistle went off, just before it went off, the roar”, Rio explained.

“I remember them both looking back and going, ‘oooff!’. It was so loud, I was like, ‘wow’.

“That’s one game I wish I could have played in during my career – an Old Firm, top-of-the-table clash. I don’t care who for.”
