Some Celtic fans are raving about the latest Twitter post of former player Paddy McCourt, who had retweeted a video about him.
A video of McCourt scoring against Hearts back in 2011 went viral recently. The club had beaten Hearts 4-0, with McCourt scoring one goal and Anthony Stokes grabbing a brace too. James Forrest also got a goal for himself in that game.
Was McCourt Celtic's best player in history?
He's nowhere close!
He is one of the best!
McCourt used his Twitter account to quote the video and many Hoops fans raved about it. They hailed their former player.
It was our pleasure paddy

And it’s an absolute pleasure to say I saw the great Paddy McCourt play for Celtic. What a man.

Celtic had signed McCourt in the summer of 2008 from Derry City. The Northern Ireland man had played for the likes of Barnsley, Brighton, Notts County and Rochdale too.
What do we think?
If McCourt had played more games for the Hoops, his influence would have been even more than it is. And he deserves every bit of the credit that Celtic fans give him. He won two Scottish Premiership titles, winning two Scottish Cups.
