Well that was quick! No sooner than we reported on the rumour that Tash Flint was coming back and before Celtic responded to our enquiry about the player coming back, they’ve just gone and re-signed the Goal Machine Tash Flint.
Tash comes from a Celtic supporting family but grew up supporting two teams as many people do, and Liverpool were her English team. Fran Alonso was very hopeful last May that Flint would be signing a permanent deal but her outstanding former in the Hoops while on loan from Leicester City, where her contract was running down, attracted interest from Liverpool.
Their budgets are much bigger than anything Celtic could pay and the emotional attachment to the Hoops was only ever going to be beaten by one club and that was Liverpool. Sod’s Law and all that!
But amid struggles to get game-time at Liverpool, an agreement has been reached and the striker has now re-joined Celtic on loan until the end of the season, when hopefully a permanent deal can be sorted.
The club has just posted the confirmation of her signing on social media:
“Welcome back, Tash! Celtic FC are thrilled to welcome Scottish Cup winner and striker Tasha Flint back to the club until the end of the season following a brilliant spell in Glasgow last year. Great to have you back, Tash, let’s go!”
Flint was a power-house in Celtic’s dominant side last season and after watching a weakened Celtic lose so miserably to theRangers last Friday, this is a tremendous response and gives us someone much needed in attack.
Welcome back Tash, you’ve been badly missed!
🤩 Welcome back, Tash!
Great to have you back, Tash, let’s go! 👊#COYGIG
