Video – Liverpool Star Recreates Celtic Days

Virgil Van Dijk has always spoke well of his time at Celtic. It was with the Hoops that he got his first taste of Champions League football, and made his name before joining Southampton. Few could begrudge Van Djik the move to the English Premiership as the defender has gone on to greater things, by signing for Liverpool and winning the European Cup, as well as being almost certain to add the English Premier League title to that honour.

The Ballon d’Or nominee was videoed in Liverpool training today, alongside Celtic fanatic and teammate, Andrew Robertson. As the Dutchman lined up a free kick, Robertson can be heard shouting: “Just like your Celtic days, top corner.” Van Dijk duly obliged, smashing the ball into the postage stamp of the net, with a strike akin to that of his free kicks against Inverness, Dundee and Hibernian.

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.
