Video – It’s the Year of the Rat – Chinese New Year wishes from Celtic

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR FROM CELTIC FC is the title of one of today’s videos released by the club on its You Tube channel and am I the only one who sees the subtle dig in there as we’re told that it’s actually the YEAR ON THE RAT.

Three Celtic stars try their best to speak a bit of Chinese in this vide – Moritz Bauer who already speaks numerous languages but clearly not Chinese, Frenchman Christopher Jullien whose English is better than his Chinese and Greg Taylor who is still trying to get to grips with his English so clearly isn’t really a candidate for learning Chinese.

But if you enjoy the three Bhoys trying their best to master the Eastern language you’ll maybe laugh a little louder when you see the mention of the YEAR OF THE RAT.

Maybe the club can do it all over again next January to bring in the Chinese New Year, especially if the next one is the YEAR OF THE SNAKE.

Enjoy the video and Happy Chinese New Year to (nearly) everyone.
