Celtic fans returned to Celtic Park during the international break this weekend to honour one of their former players, Stiliyan Petrov. The charity game was in honour of the former Celtic and Aston Villa midfielder who has been battling Leukemia and is now thankfully in remission.

It was an emotional day for the Petrov family as well as the Celtic support who were watching on, but a day to raise funds for a worthy cause.

We saw a return of much of the Seville 2003 team, bolstered by former Celts such as Brian McClair, Pierre van Hooijdonk and Jorge Cadete. They were playing a Stiliyan Petrov XI which had the likes of Dmitar Berbatov, Paul Lambert, Martin Petrov, Shay Given and John Terry in their ranks.
