I've been reading a lot about the Celts recently and understand their language(s) are the basis for some of the languages in the British Isles, among others. I understand that they emigrated to Europe from Asia. Is there a relationship between the Indo-European language that Anu Garg refers to and the Celtic languages? Then, what is the relationship of Gaelic to Celtic?

according to this tree, Scots and Irish Gaelic stem from Celtic, which is one of the IE languages.
