Celtic defender Carl Starfelt has very much won over the Hoops supporters with his performances in recent months, creating a rock-solid partnership at the back.

The Swedish defender has settled into life nicely as a Celtic player on the pitch now, after a little bit of a tricky start in the Green and White Hoops.

However, it appears that the Celtic support is also helping the 26-year old settle into life in Glasgow off the park, with a good Christmas gesture.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Starfelt revealed one of his latest interactions with a fan that saw the defender walk away with a free Christmas tree as everyone gets prepared to celebrate this festive time of year.

“I got my Christmas tree the other day, and when I went to buy it, the people were Celtic fans, so they just gave it to me for free! I tried to pay, but they wouldn’t let me.

“Being able to play in front of those fans is so special as well; they make you enjoy playing every time, and we get unbelievable support.

“I like living here a lot, I like to spend time in the West End walking around parks and going to restaurants, but now I have my own place I love to cook, which I can do more of.

“I’ve settled in a lot more now, and I’m enjoying life outside of the pitch.

“My housing situation is all sorted, which really helps. I was staying in a hotel for a very long time, but now I have my apartment, and I’ve been able to have family and friends over, so I’m enjoying life.

“I’ve got into the groove of things a lot more, and the atmosphere in the team is great as well, so I’m enjoying life.”

It is nice to see that players are beginning to feel more and more settled in Glasgow, especially with the help of the Celtic support with a nice gesture such as this.

The bond between the team and the fan base felt as far apart as every last season.

However, Ange Postecoglou and his side have gone leaps and bounds to mending that relationship with their performances on the park and the interactions with fans.

Long may it continue, as this group of players are clearly doing something right and are in with a chance of lifting their first piece of silverware next weekend.
