Celtic defender Kelvin Wilson is relishing his first taste of European action for the club against Sion on Thursday.

The Swiss outfit are the visitors to Parkhead and Wilson has heard how special European nights are for the Bhoys.

Celtic fan Sammy Clingan has told Wilson to expect an 'unbelievable atmosphere' and he cannot wait to take part in the Europa League play-off clash.

Wilson has started all three of the club's SPL fixtures to date and he is hoping to be included by manager Neil Lennon against Sion.


"I've been told European nights at Celtic Park are really special," explained Wilson.

"It's loud and the atmosphere is buzzing so it would be nice to be selected to sample that.

"When I first signed, the gaffer mentioned it to me and I spoke to Alan Thompson and Johan (Mjallby). Supporters have also talked about it as well.

"I've got a good friend, Sammy Clingan, who's at Coventry City just now, and he is a massive, massive Celtic fan.

"He has been up here to see the team up here and knows all about it.

"And he told me when I first signed: 'Kelv, wait til you play in Europe, it's an unbelievable atmosphere'. So I'm really looking forward to it."
