Content creator Chris Hamill, who gets featured on Sky Sports, lauded Carl Starfelt for his performance in the Old Firm derby on Sunday.
Jota may have scored the all-important opener for the Celts and goalkeeper Joe Hart did make three saves from inside the box to keep the sides level but Hamill was left astonished by the £3.6m-rated colossus for his performance in defence.
Taking to Twitter, he enlightened followers with the 26-year-old’s defensive statistics which included eight clearances and eight headers won.
He stated: “Starfelt stood tall for Celtic today.”
TIF Thoughts on Starfelt and Celtic…
Celtic paid £4.3m to the Russian side Rubin Kazan to acquire the Swedish international last summer, a considerable fee north of the border, but it looks to be a bargain so far, and he could be a mainstay in the side for years to come.
With Ange Postecoglu’s side needing just four points from their final three games to be confirmed as champions, one would feel that Starfelt’s presence at the back has been paramount to their resurgence this term.
