A number of Celtic fans were left raving after seeing that goalkeeper Joe Hart has made the most saves in the Europa League so far.

Indeed, the official UEFA Europa League Twitter account shared that in the group stages, no ‘keeper has been able to make more stops than the 23 Hart has managed so far. The tweet also showed him pulling off a miraculous double save against Bayer Leverkusen.

Despite his exceptional form, the Bhoys have unfortunately not managed to claim enough points to put them into the next round of the competition, as Leverkusen and Real Betis are both out of reach with only one game left to play in Group G.

Have you been impressed by Joe Hart?





Even so, the Celtic supporters were still more than happy to praise their £15k-per-week shot-stopper for the role he has played in their European exploits this season.

Here’s what these Celtic fans said…

“Been the difference this season.”

“Never actually seen a save like that in 50 years of watching football. Absolutely outstanding.”

“A wonderful signing and a steal at the price. Still only 34. Many years of glory to come his way.”
“Smoking big Joe don’t mess around.”
“Superb save, superb attitude, super signing.”

Judging from these comments, it’s easy to see just how much affection these supporters have for their goalkeeper. This is quite impressive considering he hasn’t even been at the club for very long.

Indeed, Hart only arrived in August for a reported £1m after his contract with Tottenham Hotspur was settled early.

He has wasted no time settling in, however, and started in every possible game for the club since making his debut – and has even worn the captain’s armband (via Transfermarkt).
