Mulgrew is fondly remembered for his time at the club – playing left back, left wing, centre back and central midfield. He was a regular lieutenant under Neil Lennon during his first spell but the arrival of Brendan Rodgers resulted in the end of his time at Celtic.
Mulgrew was Lennon’s first signing in 2010 and played a variety of positions in his time at Celtic, including left wing in a win at Ibrox in 2011.
Mulgrew won five league titles and two Scottish Cups as well as winning the Player of the Year accolades in 2012 for a stunning season, in which he deputised as a central defender. The defender spent six years at Celtic, making 208 appearances, assiting 34 times as well as scoring 29 goals.
