“Cheers Celtic, greetin noo”: Fans react to Artur Boruc donning a Celtic shirt for the last time…

It had to happen one day, didn’t it? That’s right – Artur Boruc is lining up in a Celtic goalkeeper shirt for one last hurrah before he retires from football.

Famous pictures have encapsulated the ‘Holy Goalie’ wearing a yellow jersey in some of Celtic’s most famous results – wins against theRangers, ties against AC Milan, famous victories over Manchester United and Barcelona – an endless list of many memories are synonymous with the gleeful Pole dancing over to the stands to celebrate a scalping of many of Europe’s giants.

Having announced his retirement from football last month, Wednesday will be the last time Boruc steps onto a pitch in some form of professional capacity when his beloved Legia Warsaw take on his equally beloved Hoops in a pre-season friendly which is sure to spark emotion – be it hostile after Warsaw’s Champions League failings against Celtic last decade or tearful as a goodbye to the shot stopper – in the capital city.

And Celtic fans have certainly made their feelings towards the situation known with a series of emotional tweets following Celtic’s posting of Boruc in this season’s goalkeeping strip on Twitter.

Whatever the outcome, Celtic fans will be glad to see one of their best ever goalkeepers adorn the famous shirt once more – even if it is the last time.

Farewell, Artur!
