With the football season on lockdown like the rest of society, we’re taking the opportunity to take a look back at some of the weird and wonderful stories surrounding Celtic. From matches to signings and nearly signings.
We recall an interview with former Celtic player Momo Sylla, who back in 2012 opened up about a conversation he had with Didier Drogba. The pair were good mates when Sylla was at Celtic and Momo revealed Drogba was keen to join him at Parkhead.
Now we all know Didier Drogba went onto have a phenomenal career, however, it could’ve all been different if Sylla gave Didier the thumbs up back in 2002 when Martin O’Neill was in charge.
Sylla recalled Drogba being keen on a move but the former Hoops star warned him off a move to the club because he wouldn’t get a game!
When you think about that, many peoples minds would be blown BUT…Celtic’s strike force at the time consisted of Henrik Larsson, Chris Sutton and John Hartson.
Momo was probably right!
