Celtic squad recap for Liverpool Legends clash at Anfield

A host of fan favourites will take to the field when Celtic travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool Legends this weekend – two clubs which are linked by players, managers, and of course a much-loved shared football anthem in ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.

Stiliyan Petrov will captain the Celts and Mikael Lustig, Joe Ledley, Emilio Izaguirre and Robbie Keane are just some of the other names who will proudly be pulling on the Hoops once again.

Former Celtic captain, Paul Lambert will take charge of the team from the dugout, assisted by another former captain and current Club Ambassador, Tom Boyd. They will also be joined by Foundation supporter, Ellen Flanagan, who was the winning bidder at our recent Annual Sporting Dinner, for the chance to assist Paul and Tom during the match.

The full squad for the match is:

The players will take on their Liverpool counterparts at Anfield on Saturday, March 25, with a 3pm kick off and over 4,000 Celtic supporters will make the trip, packing out the away section of the stadium.
