Some fans have been left talking by the latest tweet that former player recently sent out on Twitter.

Donnelly’s lighthearted tweet concerned what he told his son about his playing days when he asked who the stars of the team were during his time at Celtic, where he played alongside the likes of Henrik Larsson and Lubomir Moravcik.

Under Rodgers, against which club did Celtic play their first game?

This tweet got many Celtic fans talking. They believe Donnelly was underestimating the influence he had at Parkhead.

Some felt that Donnelly was doing himself a disservice with his tweet, while others clearly enjoyed the message from the former Celtic man.

Was Donnelly as big a star is Moravcik and Larsson?

Not a chance

I think he was

Donnelly joined Celtic in the summer of 1993 from Cosmos Canberra on a free transfer and departed in the summer of 1999 to join Sheffield Wednesday.

Though judging by the responses to his tweet, Donnelly has remained a favourite of the Bhoys fanbase some 20 years on from his Parkhead departure.

For someone who had been at the club for so many years, it does seem as if Donnelly did leave behind an impact in the hearts of many Celtic fans. Their comments on the Twitter post show just that, even if some were a little tongue-in-cheek.
