Celtic's stunning 2-1 victory over Barcelona in Glasgow will rank among the greatest ever nights for the Scottish giants. Here we take a look at some of the other famous European results in the club's history.

<b>CHELSEA...</b><br/>
<p><b>PETR CECH</b></p>
<p>Powerless to stop the goals and made excellent save just before Hernandez's winner. Good distribution. 6/10</p>
<br/>
<p><b>BRANISLAV IVANOVIC</b></p>
<p>Reliable performance at right-back, before a red card which was not just his fault. 5</p>
<br/>
<p><b>GARY CAHILL</b></p>
<p>Had to make a few flying blocks in the first half, although ideally he would not have to. 5</p><br/>
<p><b>DAVID LUIZ</b></p>
<p>Never looked fully fit, struggling against pace on the turn. He barely won a single header against Van Persie. 4</p><br/>
<p><b>ASHLEY COLE</b></p>
<p>Relentlessly hard-working, and looked the fittest player on the pitch by the end, though had a tough first half. 6</p>

Rajesh Khanna, the first real superstar of Indian cinema, was the undisputed king of Bollywood in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Fans both male and female would send him letters written in their blood. "Women came out in droves to see him," said Sharmila Tagore, who acted with him in nine films. "They'd stand in queues outside the studios to catch a glimpse, they'd marry themselves to his photographs, they'd pull at his clothes… He needed police protection. I've never seen anything like it before or since."

Rajesh Khanna received a life time achievement award from the International Indian Film Academy in 2009
