Ex-Celtic star Tony Watt has told of his excitement at watching his former side in Europa League action this evening.

The CSKA Sofia forward shared a throwback snap of himself in Celtic colours.

The Hoops square-off against Rennes this evening in their Group E opener and Watt recalled his own personal glory days when he played for his beloved team.

Posting on social media Watt wrote: “Name something better than a European night with that badge on your chest troops”.

His post racked up more than 1,000 likes and shares.

Fans of the Scottish champions, also desperate to watch their team in action tonight, loved the pic.

One said: “There’s nothing better.”

Another added: “Not a damn thing.”

One commented: “Only the next one.”

A fourth wrote: “Love u”.

Watt famously made his name on the European stage with the winner for Celtic in a 2-1 victory over Barcelona at Parkhead.
