COCKY Lincoln Red Imps skipper Roy Chipolina insists the semi-professional Gibraltar outfit can knock Celtic out of the Champions League tomorrow night.
The minnows created a sensation with their 1-0 win a week ago and he believes they can create an even bigger sensation in the return leg at Parkhead.
The customs official – who was forced to use up annual leave to travel to Scotland – admitted his club can make the transition from pub team to giant-killers in Glasgow.img_1827-3.jpg

Chipolina said: “We are going there with confidence. If we have the game of our lives and Celtic have a poor game, it can happen.

“It happened over there. Why not here? We have our own preparations and our own plan. We are all looking forward to playing at Celtic Park. It’s one of those stadiums everybody wants to play in.

“It’s like going from Sunday league to Celtic Park in three years. It’s what dreams are made of. Last week was historic. Half of Gibraltar is still in shock.

“It’s more special for us coming here with a lead to defend rather than going there after a 4-0 defeat. We’ll enjoy it more.”

Chipolina added: “All the media attention we are getting it is all new to us. The lads are really enjoying it.

“Now we have the win against Celtic under out belts, our name is on everybody’s lips in Europe. It’s great for business.

“We have always been a club that works hard even in the so-called amateur days. The manager that has come in now, Julio, has a great CV. Tactically he has got us a lot better.

“Everyone in Gibraltar has commented on how well we were set up against Celtic.”
