Video – Every Tackle & Interception By Diego Laxalt Last Night

Diego Laxalt had a stormer last night. He’s made a solid start to his Celtic career, but that was his bets performance yet. The full back made 13 tackles, a Europa League record, along with four interceptions. His determination and intensity was infectious and he also linked up well with Elyounoussi down the left side.

BT Sport have subsequently uploaded a video showing every tackle and interception made by the Uruguayan in Lille. It looks like we have a real player on our hands:

Astonishingly, Laxalt is yet to taste victory in the hoops. Let’s hope he can achieve that on Sunday – with this kind of form there’s every chance.

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
