The former Southampton trainee, 21, packed his first full season as a first-team regular with more experience than many professionals manage in an entire career.

Dean was in the side which took Chelsea to an FA Cup replay and, after the Bees dramatically missed out on automatic promotion with the last kick of the season, he scored their consolation goal in the play-off final defeat by Yeovil.

"It will nice to play Celtic, the ground will be packed and it's another good game to look forward to," said Dean.

"But whereas last season I would have been absolutely buzzing to play Celtic, I have experienced Chelsea and Wembley now so you take it in your stride, you are used to it."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
