CELTIC have acknowledged former fan favourites retirement after Paddy McCourt hung up ho’s boots this week

The former Celtic midfielder who was and probably still is a bit of a cult hero around these parts played a pivotal role in his club, Finn Harps, gaining promotion before bowing out of professional football.

Paddy was appreciated by the Celtic support for the things he could do for a football, in full flight the player was on another level.

Sadly his fitness levels were never on a par with his outstanding talent and he didn’t manage as many games as he should have for the bhoys.

It was nice to see Celtic acknowledge his final game.

The Irishman got injured and had to come off prematurely in his final match but his career still ended on a high with promotion being won.

A new challenge awaits the Derry Pele with a job waiting for him in his hometown with Derry FC.

Paddy will head up the youth system in Derry.
