Aaron, Aaron Mooy – Let’s hope it’s not the end of the road

Let’s hope it’s not the end for Aaron as far as playing for Celtic is concerned. Some concerning news hit the media this morning regarding the fitness of Aaron Mooy. According to rumours which have actually been doing the rounds since the Scottish Cup final, the Aussie could be forced to retire due to an ongoing back injury.

Let’s hope it’s just rumours and nothing more, for the club and the player himself. Aaron had a terrific campaign last year and is a valuable member of the Celtic squad. He is also hugely popular with the Celtic support.

You could tell towards the end of the season he was carrying a knock as he wasn’t his usual influential self in the middle of the park. He of course missed a run in of games as we closed in on the treble and when asked about the player’s fitness then manager Ange Postecoglou certainly gave the impression that it was nothing too serious and the player would be a few weeks away from a return to full fitness.

Aaron despite a shaky start slowly made his mark on the side and was a regular starter under Ange after a terrific World Cup with Australia. Like Daizen Maeda he came back a better player for his experience in Qatar.

With a year remaining on his contract he still has a lot to offer the side, and if fit will most likely be in Brendan Rodgers plans. Let’s hope there’s nothing in these rumours and Aaron overcomes his injury and is ready for the season ahead.

If not, he will retire on a high as a treble winner with Celtic and will always be remembered fondly by the supporters. Aaron, Aaron, Mooy, Aaron…
