Joe loves Celtic with all his Hart – Bhoys shot stopper on a revitalised career in Glasgow

He’s had a torrid time in football since he left Manchester City under Pep Guardiola’s ruling – but even at the age of 34, Joe Hart has shown he’s still got it after winning his first piece of silverware since 2016 under Ange Postecoglou at Celtic Park.

The Shrewsbury born keeper joined Celtic on a free transfer in the summer, after years of failed transfer at West Ham, Burnley, Tottenham and Torino.

Having made 75 caps for England from 2008 to 2017, Hart has used his wealth of experience at Celtic Park often, it is clear to see.

And that happened again on Sunday with the saves from Kevin Nisbet and co; etching his name into the hearts of the Bhoys’ faithful.

And it is evident to see that the feeling is reciprocated.

“I just want to be a big part of a club and give my all to them,” he said via The Scotsman.  “That’s what burns through me. This is huge because you live in the moment, don’t you?

“I don’t live in the past and I certainly don’t live in the future. I live in the moment. This was my first chance to win a trophy for this great club and I had my family here.

“It was special, really special. I am very proud. I enjoyed the celebrations with the fans at the end. During the game you need to show composure and stay calm. But I am one of them – I love football, love playing, always have and always will.

“Growing up, I never thought I’d have the opportunities to do the things I am doing. It would be criminal of me to be on this pitch and not enjoy it with the fans, when so many thousands would love to be there too.”

Here’s to Joe earning more silverware by the end of the season – Celtic are still on for the quadruple, you know…

  1. Hart was always a great keeper. He did not have a failed stint in Torino though so you really need to do your research better kid. He was a success but it was only a loan so never lasted for that reason only. I truly believe that what broke Joe was the way he was treated by City and dumped, it’s taken Joe years to get over it and rebuild his reputation. Hopefully he’s back to his best.
