According to the Greeks, who met up with the Celts long before the Romans came out of their caves, the Germans were simply the tributary tribes to the Celtic overlords in their area.

Several different events drove the Celts out of Central and Eastern Europe into the Mediterranean, and thence to Iberia and the West. These events were described by the Greeks as "German revolts".

It is an error to confound the Germans with the Celts.

Germanics, Slavic, Italics, Greeks, Albanians, Celtics, Iranis, Indians, etc. are all part of the Indo-European group of peoples in any case
