Juande Ramos has fond memories of the time thousands of Celtic fans descended on the city of Seville to watch their team as they battled vainly for the UEFA Cup in an epic final against Porto.

Now, four years later, the Sevilla boss has vowed to return the favour by ensuring a night to remember when his own players compete for the same prize against fellow Spanish club Espanyol in Glasgow on Wednesday night.

"I certainly remember it was a beautiful match for Seville," he said. "There were no problems with the Celtic fans who went with the team. Despite the result, they were all happy. I think Sevilla will give back the same care and friendship as Celtic. We must also remember it was a great match and I hope we will see another great match."
