Yesterday afternoon, Celtic youngster Stephen Welsh was thrown right into the deep end, in just his 2nd competitive start against Rangers.
Many had slight concern as to how the 20-year may hold up in a game of tho magnitude as he hadn’t seen much first-team action.
However, Welsh was arguably one of the only, very few positive to take from yesterday.
After the game, there was also images released do show how much this defeat meant for the young Celtic star and it was encouraging to see the emotion he showed after such a humiliating result.
There wasn’t a player more gutted at full time than Stephen Welsh but he’s one of the few #Celtic players who can hold their head up high after today’s result.— Chris Doyle (@bychrisdoyle) October 17, 2020
Thrown in at the deep end and didn’t look out of place. Only his second game for the club 👏👏👏 pic.twitter.com/eROQtWUZMe
For me, the youngster has a future at this club, just signing a new three-year deal a few months ago.
In the two games he has played he has been extremely solid and that is impressive for someone to do in their first two games, nevermind one of yesterday’s magnitude.
He was let down by his fellow team-mates yesterday and he should be one of the only ones who are proud of their performance yesterday.
Hopefully, there is more to come from the young defender, as there are certainly positive signs of him being a good player.
