Celtic were honoured with a gong for 'Best Fan' award at FIFA's #TheBest ceremony in London on Monday night.

The event, hosted by actor Idris Elba and aired on ITV1, saw a number of prizes bestowed to numerous individuals, including Best Men and Women's player, and Best Men and Women's coach.

It was attended by some star-studded names as all nominees for the top awards were present, including winners Cristiano Ronaldo and Lieke Martins.

The Hoops received the Best Fans award, as voted for by other clubs' supporters on FIFA's website, after their brilliant tribute to the Lisbon Lions in their last home game of last season.

Supporters took part in a card display, which helped to spell out the words 'Lisbon Lions' at Parkhead, which paid hommage to the famous side - managed by Jock Stein - that toppled Inter Milan in the Portuguese capital all the way back in the 1967 European Cup final.

The Scottish giants were voted into first place ahead of the likes of Borussia Dortmund and FC Copenhagen for their stunning 360 display - which put the club's safety certificate in doubt at the time.
