The photo features the 67th minute of the game, showing a Celtic Park tradition where the fans hold up their phones to pay tribute to the Lisbon Lions, the 1967 European Cup final winners.
The noise of the crowd must have inspired Celtic, as the Hoops turned in their best performance of the Group Stages so far.
The likes of James Forrest, Kieran Tierney and Moussa Dembele started the game on fire, but unfortunately for Celtic a defensive mix-up involving Dedryck Boyata and Craig Gordon allowed Kingsley Coman to give Bayern the lead.

Celtic weren’t to be denied though, and great work from Forrest set up Callum McGregor to level the game.
Bayern’s experience told though, and only two minutes late a Javi Martinez header won the game for the German Champions.
Celtic will have taken great heart from the performance, having run Bayern so close.
The Celtic support will be hoping for a similar atmosphere at Parkhead when the Bhoys take on Anderlecht next month.
