Many Celtic fans have been reacting to the news that defender has signed a new deal at the club.

The club announced today that the 21-year-old, who has come through the ranks at Parkhead, has signed a new deal with the club taking him into the summer of 2025. This season has been something of a breakthrough season for Welsh, making 16 appearances in all competitions including three in the .

And whilst there hasn’t really been much to smile about for the club this season both on and off the pitch, the fact that one of their own has managed to be tied down for the foreseeable future was a welcome relief to a number of supporters online and they couldn’t contain their excitement:

“Superb. Great prospect. Hasn’t put a foot wrong”

“Very well deserved. Hopefully the new manager keeps playing him”
“Superb news the guy looks as solid as anyone else we have at the back”
“This is definitely the content a like to see on a Tuesday”
“Love this guy has the perfect attitude, never complained about game time just does his talking on the training pitch and now he’s getting his rewards. All the best to him”
“Very happy with this. Welsh has come in to a defence that’s leaking worse than a knackered fridge and done the basics well. Room for improvement, but delighted we’re getting a centre half coming through from the Academy”

Whilst there is still plenty of talk about who is going to be the in the dugout at Celtic Park next season, it looks as if we know one person who is going to be involved for the new boss, whoever it may end up being.
