When BVB bus driver Christian "Schulle" Schulz set off from the team hotel in Glasgow, an exciting assembly of legends was sitting behind him: Kevin Grosskreutz, Marcel Schmelzer and Roman Weidenfeller - and for the first time: Lukasz Piszczek and Jakub Blaszczykowski. This was the first appearance in the BVB legends team for the two Poles, who were greeted with applause from their teammates.

There was also applause from the Celtic fans as the BVB bus rolled up at Celtic Park. 35,000 spectators turned up to watch the game. The home fans were still buzzing from the previous evening, when they lifted the Scottish Cup and completed a domestic double.

Around 100 BVB fans were there to support the Black & Yellow legends. Many of them are from Scotland. The flags of fan clubs Edinburgh Borussen and Scotland Clan hang on the fence.

Then things got emotional: Murdo MacLeod walks onto the pitch. He won the hearts of fans both as a player in Dortmund and in Glasgow. The stadium rose to its feet, Murdo wiped the tears from his face. His former teammate, Nobby Dickel, gave him a warm embrace as he left the pitch.

There was another Scot in the stadium who played for both clubs: Paul Lambert. He coached the home team in the first half and played for the Black & Yellows after the break. He is "grateful", says Paul after the game. He had a great time at both clubs.

The Celtic legends win the game 4-2, with David Odonkor and Jakub Blaszczykowski (after an assist from Lukasz Piszczek) scoring for BVB. Coach driver Schulle stays on the island with the team bus. In less than a week, he will pick up our first team at a London airport and then drive them to the Champions League final. Hopefully the outcome will go down in legend.
