Conor Hazard’s Classy Gesture Shows He Is A Man With His Feet Firmly On The Ground

Conor Hazard has unexpectedly burst onto the scene at Celtic Park in the last week. He made his debut against Lille in the Europa League last Thursday and retained his place for the weekend’s clash with Kilmarnock. An assured presence between the sticks, Hazard kept a clean sheet on Sunday and appeared to be vocal in organising his defence. In the eyes of many, he should start the Scottish Cup Final at the weekend.

A boyhood Celtic fan from Downpatrick, it would be easy for the Irishman to get carried away with fulfilling his dream. However, Hazard has taken everything in his stride in an exemplary manner, as the Courier revealed. According to the newspaper, Celtic’s young goalkeeper contacted Dundee’s Manager, James McPake, who took him on loan last season. The Dundee Manager said: “He’d played in Europe, but picked up the phone and thanked myself, Bobby and all the staff here at Dundee for everything we did for him. That’s a class act from a classy person.”
