‘Jota on the Wing’ – Celtic thank Ellie Dixon for brilliant pre-match performance

Celtic have posted a lovely little tribute video to the very talented musician Ellie Dixon who was a special guest at Celtic Park after her Radio 5 Live appearance on League Cup Final weekend where she performed her acoustic version of the Celtic song Jota on the Wing on national radio. This captured the imagination of the Celtic support and with no away fans at Celtic Park at the weekend there was a perfect opportunity for the club to invite Ellie to play at Paradise, as she certainly seemed to enjoy it as much as the rest of the 60,000 Celtic supporters.

“Jota, Jota on the wing! A special thanks to Ellie Dixon who joined Liam McGrandles at Celtic Park on Saturday for a brilliant pre-match performance. Thanks for giving her a warm Paradise welcome, Celts!” the Celtic message today states.

Ellie performed her wonderful version of Jota on the Wing and got to meet the main man himself, who completed a perfect day by scoring the winner in the 3-2 Glasgow Derby win over theRangers.

Ellie also performed a beautiful version of The Fields of Athenry while Liam McGrandles rounded the little Celtic pre-match music festival off with a brilliant rendition of Grace.
