Former Celtic title winner Charlie Mulgrew has disclosed that he still watches the Hoops play whenever he can. Mulgrew, who is currently at Wigan, told Sky Sports that he still keeps a keen eye on how Celtic are performing.

“I always watch the games and look for the Celtic result, it’s something that never leaves you” he said, as reported by Sky Sports.

“It’s massive, I’m a Celtic fan, it is something I always look to. I’m obviously hoping Celtic win the league, but we’ll see what happens.”

Mulgrew was a key man for Celtic during Neil Lennon’s first spell as Hoops manager. He was an integral part of the side which won the league in 2012. So good were his performances that season that he was named as Scotland’s player of the year.

It is perhaps a tad surprising that Lennon didn’t consider signing Mulgrew when he returned to Celtic as manager, but it is probably for the best that both player and club move on.

Mulgrew will no doubt be keeping a close eye on Celtic’s Betfred Cup Final clash against rivals Rangers on Sunday. He tasted both success and failure in the fixture.

He was red carded in the 4-2 loss at Ibrox in 2011, but made up for that by crashing home a header in a 3-0 win at Celtic Park a year later.

Mulgrew will no doubt be hoping that Celtic win their first trophy of the season to make it 10 domestic trophies won in a row. Even during his very successful time at the club Celtic didn’t dominate Scottish football the way they have in the last three seasons.

It is good to see that a former player still keeps an eye on how the Hoops are doing, and Mulgrew is very clear that he hopes that Celtic make it nine in a row this season. He played a part in making it one in a row, so hopefully the current Celtic side are able to grant him his wish.
