VASILIS BARKAS had a terrible time last season for Celtic but it looks like he’s finally finding his feet in a Celtic jersey.
The Hoops goalkeeper got the first half against Preston on Saturday evening at Celtic Park and pulled off some good saves as well as playing high up the field in a sweeper type role.
Celtic fans were critical of Barkas last season, but he was in and out of the side under Neil Lennon who never really trusted the Greek player to do his job.
New boss, Ange Postecoglou has given the goalkeeper a lot of confidence since coming in and we’d be surprised if Barkas didn’t start the Champions League qualifier on Tuesday.
A lot of fans agree that we’re starting to see much more of the goalkeeper.

Ange will have to decide if Barkas is good enough to be number one before the transfer window closes. We don’t want to be in a situation like last season, if he deems neither good enough, the club will have to dip into the market.
