Football: TOO BAD I MISSED TOP DERBY.

STAN'S favourite Old Firm game was one he didn't play in!

He was at home nursing a broken leg as Celts ran out 3-0 winners at Ibrox in April 2001.

But he ended up shedding tears of joy as Lubo Moravcik's double inspired his team-mates.

Stilian recalled: "I had broken my leg against St Johnstone so I lay on a mattress on the floor to watch the game with Paulina.

"We'd already won the title. It was a day for celebration - to widen the gap at the top from 18 to 21 points.

"It was 0-0 at half time but then we took control with Lubo producing two moments of genius to score a double against Stefan Klos.

"Rangers were dying for the final whistle but Henrik Larsson rounded off an excellent day with a late goal.

"I shed a tear as the lads ran to our fans in the Broomloan Stand. I was emotional because I knew how good the boys were feeling and I was frustrated at being stuck in the house unable to contribute
