Asked to describe Celtic to someone who had never heard of them this was the defender’s outstanding response.

“Intense and passionate. I would say traditions and culture, born and bread in one mind and that’s to support and love one club – Celtic.

“One of my memories was when driving up to the stadium in my car and I would see thousands of people walking towards Paradise. All wearing the Hoops, all wearing something associated with Celtic. And there would be young and old, sons and daughters, fathers and mothers. That was truly amazing to see.

“That togetherness and then the people, in general, was always so kind and positive. I love that.”
