Noel Gallagher was mindblown by the 6-2 gameNoel Gallagher was mindblown by the 6-2 gameAdd your own memory!

The greatest thing I've ever seen was before the 6-2 match [in August 2000, when Celtic beat Rangers].

I was having a drink and this guy came up and said: "You better go and sit in your seat, son, something special is about to happen." As I walked into the stadium 'Roll With It' came out of the PA. They stopped it halfway and the fans stood up and began to sing it.

I'm glad I got the chance to see Henrik Larsson score against Rangers when he looked especially cool with the dreadlocks. He scored with a magnificent chip over the keeper's head. Everyone thought the ball was over, even the ball boys, but he was already celebrating.

My other favourite Celtic player was Kenny Dalglish. He was just a phenomenal footballer. He had the haircut, the big sideboards, the big collared shirts and the number on the shorts. I also liked Charlie Nicholas. Anyone that comes with the prefix Champagne is all right by me.

Not as good as when it was played at Ibrox after we won the League Cup there in 1997. To have the Ibrox PA play it and 3 sides of Fortress Doom singing to it was phenomenal.
