Real Betis who gave us 2 great games of football in the Europa League this season have extended a hand of friendship to Celtic before the Glasgow Derby on twitter and Celts are loving it.

The Spaniards won just their 3rd Copa Del Rey last weekend on penalties after the match vs Valencia finished 1-1.

The links between the clubs go way back to the early 1900’s when one of their players Manuel Ramos Asensio was sent to Dumfries to learn English, he used to go and watch Celtic often and when he returned to Spain ordered the green and white strips for Betis and they changed their colours from blue accordingly.

This tweet is just another example of the friendship between the teams.

Celts added their own replies, here are a few, jump on this thread and add your own.
