Celtic pay tribute to former duo as Liverpool win Premier League

CELTIC have paid tribute to former players Virgil Van Dijk and Andy Robertson as Manchester City’s defeat at Chelsea sealed Liverpool’s first English league title in 30 years. The Scottish Champions toasted the English Champions in a tweet last night, congratulating them on their success.

Robertson was a youth product of the Celtic academy before starting his career at Queen’s Park but remains a vocal supporter of Neil Lennon’s side. Meanwhile it was the Irishman that brought Virgil Van Dijk to Celtic in 2013.

Van Dijk won two Premiership titles in Glasgow, as well as the League Cup under Ronny Deila but he also played European football, Champions League group stages in 2013 and Europa League Last 32 the following year. A £12m move to Southampton followed and two years after that, Van Dijk became the most expensive defender in the world after a £75m move to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. Now Van Dijk can add English Champion to Scottish and European Champion.

Celtic and Liverpool have always shared a unique bond with Hillsborough benefit match in 1989, the shared anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone and a number of players that have pulled on the famous jerseys.

Well done to Liverpool as well as both players, who continue to prove that Scottish football is producing and developing world class talent. Well
