PC Lustig names the funniest player he played with at Celtic

Mikael Lustig and his family are back in Glasgow after a couple of years away. They took in the game at Celtic Park at the weekend, with the former Celtic right-back doing the honours for the half-time Paradise Windfall draw as well as making an appearance on Celtic TV ahead of kick-off.

And or course Mikael Lustig will join Scott Brown and plenty of other special guests no doubt at the Hydro in Glasgow on Thursday 18 May for ‘A Night with Scott Brown & Mikael Lustig’. This promises to be an outstanding occasion as the Celtic support finally gets an opportunity to thank two Celtic legends for their incredible contribution to our club.

Here’s Mikael Lustig on Celtic TV ahead of kick-off on Saturday against Hibs…

Here’s how the Mikael Lustig got on earlier this afternoon doing a supporters Q&A on social media…
