Celtic fans reflect on 2003 UEFA Cup heartbreak

Loads of Celtic fans have been reacting to a picture of Henrik Larsson on Twitter, as they reminisce about the 2003 UEFA Cup heartbreak.

Celtic are well on pace to secure a treble for the third year running this season, facing Hearts in the Scottish Cup final and needing just a few more wins to close out their eighth consecutive title.

Yet while domestic dominance has increased in recent years, the Bhoys’ European ventures have gotten worse, epitomised by their shocking exit this season.

Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below…

The Hoops were dumped out of the Champions League by AEK Athens after an insipid performance, and fans are now looking back at a time where they were a serious European force.

The 2003 UEFA Cup final in Seville saw Porto beat the Bhoys 3-2 despite Larsson scoring twice, and Celtic Bible have shared a quote from the legendary Swede that reads: “I would have swapped a lot of what I achieved for Celtic just to win in Seville.”

The image accompanying the quote shows the goalscoring machine walking past the cup in agony, and it’s sent fans on Twitter right back to the heartbreak of that night.

Have a look at the best of the reaction down below…
