Video: “What’s The Goalie Doing Tom?” Is Now Three Years Old

On 11 March 2018, Celtic recorded a memorable away win over their rivals at Ibrox. Reduced to ten men when Jozo Simunovic was sent off, Brendan Rodgers introduced Odsonne Edouard and the Frenchman delivered a coming of age moment with a fantastic winning goal to make it 3-2.

There were also many laughs throughout that topsy turvy encounter, including Morelos hitting the post from three yards and a famous piece of commentary on Rangers TV. “What’s the goalie doing Tom?”

The comment turned into a meme, t-shirt and even a song. Celtic supporters certainly lapped up that quote.
