Perhaps the accomplishment of Celtic's run to Seville in 2003, there aren't too many results more famous in the club's history than beating Liverpool at Anfield.

But they didn't account for a Martin O'Neill special, as Celtic scrapped for every ball and out-fought, out-played and out-thought their more esteemed hosts on the big stage.

Having drawn 1-1 at Parkhead, a Steven Gerrard-led Reds side were heavy favourites to reach the UEFA Cup quarter-finals at the Hoops expense.

Goals from Alan Thompson and John Hartson left Merseyside shocked to its core, as a team that would go on to win the Champions League 12 months later was sent packing on home turf.

Then, with only nine minutes left, Hartson ripped the heart from the home side.

Even if they never kick another ball, these Celtic players brought together by Martin O'Neill deserve to be hailed as special.

The tie was over, Celtic were cruising and looking forward to a European semi-final tie for the first time in 29 years.
