Mooymania – Aaron Makes SPFL Team of the Week

Aaron Mooy has been included in this week’s cinch SPFL Team of the Week. The Australian international has been nothing short of sensational since his return from the World Cup in Qatar and his past few performances has had the Celtic fans and manager, Ange Postecoglou purring with delight.

Mooy surprisingly missed out last week although Jota was included after his display and goal against Dundee United at Tannadice last Sunday afternoon. However, there seemed to be no place for Daddy Cool who was equally as impressive – setting up Jota for his headed goal with a wicked cross and his general all-round play. Oh, and scoring a penalty too!

This week though, I think they’ve found it too difficult to exclude the unassuming quiet man of the Hoops squad. His equally as impressive character comes across during interview and it makes Mooy the whole package for the Celtic supporters. His shyness adds to the àura he has on the pitch and couldn’t be more humbler when asked about a potential new, long-term contract for his recent form – quipping that he is getting on a bit!

Well, he doesn’t look like he’s getting on a bit out there on the field of play, that much is certain. Ange will no doubt see Aaron as being crucial moving forward given the way he has dovetails with captain, Callum McGregor. The two have a really good understanding and you can see that whenever they play together. Reo Hatate also adds yet more class to proceedings and it’s a midfield that is going to take some stopping at the moment.

Still no Kyogo included though…

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
