Video: Sing along to brilliant new Reo Hatate song

With Matt O’Riley getting his own new song for the new season it’s good to see that Reo Hatate has joined him in receiving this honour to from the ever creative Celtic songwriters in our support.

Reo Hatete celebrates scoring the opener against Legia Warsaw // GETTY

And you get the feeling that this one is going to be very popular this season for the Japanese midfielder, a true Celtic Star and confirmed skelper, firstly of Hearts scoring a goal at the end of January at Tynecastle that is still giving poor old Craig Gordon nightmares then following that up with a double in that never to be forgotten first half on 2 February when theRangers bottle and with it their title challenge collapsed as Reo Hatate put Celtic two up before assisting Liel Abada for a third shortly before the interval.

No wonder he’s hugely popular with the Celtic support. However his form faded towards the end of a season and a half playing football in the J-League then at Celtic, and the summer rest will have done him the world of good. He’s looked extra special over the pre-season games and today will get the chance to star against Aberdeen in the flag day Scottish premiership opener.

We might even hear the new Reo Hatate song, here’s the words so that you can practice on th way to the game…

Hey, oh Reo Hatate

The Celtic get excited when we see you play.

It’s strange that the feeling grows more and more

But we’ve had a player like you before…
