Aaron, Aaron Mooy’s incredible swansong to a terrific career

It was officially announced by Celtic this morning that Aaron Mooy has hung up his boots and retired from the game at the age of 32.

It’s a crushing blow for both the club and player as Aaron is an extremely talented player and with one year remaining on his contract he would have been no doubt part of Brendan Rodgers plans for next season.

Aaron had a slow start to his Celtic career but soon picked up and after some stelar displays and a good World Cup with Australia. He soon became a first choice pick under Ange Postecoglou as we strolled to the league title. He also picked up a league cup winners medal but sadly missed the conclusion of the season and the Scottish cup final, although he played a huge part in getting us through to the final with outstanding performances in the games against Hearts at Typecastle where he scored and in the semi-final against theRangers.

He missed the last month of the season, where Celtic’s league form dipped, with then manager Ange Postecoglou insisting his injury was nothing serious and always suggesting he’d be back shortly. That though never happened and he was part of the squad at Hampden on Cup Final day as an unstripped player wearing his club suit.

Here’s Sandman’s take on Aaron Mooy in his brilliant season review on The Celtic Star…

Aaron’s experience and talent in the middle of the park will be sadly missed, and it’s a shame as he still had plenty to offer, but he had a decent career playing at the highest level of club football and represented his country at the World Cup. He’s seen and done it all and finished his career on a high with as the stand-out player for the Socceroos at the World Cup and as a Treble winner in his one and only season playing for Celtic.

Not a bad way to bring down the curtain on a very successful career as a professional footballer.

So ‘Aaron, Aaron Mooy’ finishes his career on a high as a treble winner at Celtic, an incredible swansong to his terrific career. All the best Aaron and thanks for your contribution to the Celtic cause. HH
