On This Day: Happy Birthday to Artur Boruc, brilliant unveiling photo

Happy Birthday to former Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc, who turns 44 today. Boruc made 221 appearances for Celtic, earning a number of plaudits as well as winning three League titles, two League cups, and one Scottish Cup.

Boruc, who signed from Legia Warsaw in 2005, was nicknamed the ‘Holy Goalie’ by supporters due to the fact he blessed himself before he entered the goal, which obviously upset Rangers supporters for some unapparent reason. The signing also produced on of the best football unveiling photos from the noughties with Gordon Strachan standing beside the player.

Here are a few of the ‘keeper’s best moments in a Celtic shirt which include that brilliant penalty save against Louis Saha in the Champions League and countless brave saves.

However, here is the sensational moment that the Holy Goalie grabbed a ‘Champions’ flag out the Free Broomloan and decided to run it along back to the tunnel, winding up those that remained in Ibrox.
