Some Celtic fans have been talking about Virgil van Dijk and his comments about the Hoops’ title charge this season.
The Hoops recently picked up a 3-1 win over Kilmarnock in the Premiership, while their closest title challengers were held at the weekend.
Before the game though, Van Dijk talked to BBC Scotland about how he still follows Celtic games and keeps an eye on ‘how things are going’. The Dutchman also said that he’s sure that the Hoops will win the title this season.
Do you want Van Dijk back at Parkhead?
Why not, he'd be brilliant
Lets move on
CelticBible relayed these quotes on Twitter and it left many Hoops fans raving.
Hope you’re right big man….I’m superstitious, never count ma chickens etc etc.

That’s a welcome endorsement of the efforts of the team and the strong position they are in but until it’s mathematically impossible for the title to be lost it would be foolish to become complacent

And yet he won’t admit that the league is done and dusted down south

What do we think?
It is therefore no surprise that Celtic fans still remember the Dutchman fondly. His comments about the club winning the Premiership once again will surely delight them.
