During the title celebrations at Celtic Park on Saturday, Odin Thiago Holm found himself at the centre of attention despite the lack of minutes this season.

Holm chose not to partake in lifting the Premiership trophy.

After Callum McGregor hoisted the trophy and it was shared among the players, Nicolas Kuhn offered it to Holm. In a quiet gesture of refusal, Holm simply shook his head and bypassed the trophy, continuing past without engaging in the celebration.

The Holm incident comes after two minutes in.

Holm, hailed as a potential prodigy upon his £2.6 million transfer last summer, has found his time at Celtic challenging. With only 13 appearances to his name this season, many as a substitute, he has struggled to secure a regular spot in a midfield that remains a keystone of Brendan Rodgers’ team strategy.

Still only 21, Holm’s career holds promise, whether it continues at Celtic or takes him elsewhere. However, his limited involvement this season seemed to weigh on him during the celebrations following Celtic’s victory over St Mirren.


  1. Noticed that yesterday and thought it was actually vata?
    Regardless I don’t hold it against a player if he doesn’t really feel part of the trophy celebrations when they feel that they might not have contributed to much to the title victory?
    That is always the challenge facing the younger players within the club, yet delighted with how the club and especially Calmac as captain wants all players to feel part of the celebrations Regardless of how much contribution they may have provided?
    Would like to think that the summer transfers and will involve more players wanting to take up the challenge of the big club mentality and demands, that looking at the younger players to actually grow into those within our club?
    We already have more than enough of players in the position Holm finds himself in?
    I understand that the younger players will want to be getting more game time, but there is a process involved in getting to the standard our manager and team requires, and just a case that many won’t fulfil the opportunity within our club?
    Personally believe Holm will be looking at a loan move away next season to potentially help in his development?
    That would possibly be the more sensible option for everyone involved imo?
    Yet there could be a case of Holm hasn’t the right attitude to succeed at our big club, so it still remains a case of wait and see, as it is for so many within our current squad still imo?
