Andrea Pirlo has claimed that it is an ‘insult’ that Celtic have to enter the qualifiers for the Champions league.

The Juventus star believes that the Scottish champions have already proven themselves and there should not be a need for them to qualify.

“It’s an insult Celtic have to enter the qualifiers this early on.

“It is an insult to the history of the club — and to all they have achieved in Europe recently.

“As champions they should not need to qualify. It is not fitting for a club of their size.”

Meanwhile, the Celtic manager Neil Lennon lauded the Juventus legend with praises as he tweeted: Thunder in Glasgow..who would’ve thought?…and my admiration for Andrea Pirlo grows daily.
