Didn't get to see the game, but by looking at the stats I'm guessing it was one of those games where Barca gets frustrated and stunned.

Stunned yes but not really frustrated since they rarely have any real chance

This is the same side that nearly beat Barca in the Nou Camp a few weeks ago, so they should have no excuse to be 'stunned' by this result.

And if they are, then they have no one else but themselves to blame for underestimating the Hoops, on a wet November night in Glasgow, in front of 60,000 riled up Celtic fans!

I see, then that's pretty disappointing, they've been horrible since Celta Vigo, hell since before then. They've had some bad luck with injuries, but also a little good luck considering they've gotten good last minute results in the league. Pretty strange start to CL league, Malaga doing great, Borussia, Bayern's loss to Bate.

Considering Alex Song cost more than the entire Celtic team, this was a phenomenal result. Celtic completely deserved it too, they really did try to push forward and play when they had the ball and not get pushed too far back into defence. This is, of course, easier said than done against a team as relentless as Barcelona, but they managed it.

What a performance by Celtic. I thought Watt took his goal brilliantly. Barcelona's first defeat in the group stage in three years. Celtic were immense and I am sure the asking price of a few of their players and manager have gone up a notch. Forster looks like a world class keeper, I'm not sure why Newcastle ever loaned him.
