Former Manchester United man Darren Fletcher has been snapped wearing the old 1991-92 Celtic away top.

The five-time Premier League winner is a well-known Celtic supporter. He’s already confirmed in the past that he grew up supporting the Hoops, and he was also a part of the Celtic Boys Club during his younger days.

Interestingly, however, Fletcher was also set to join Rangers before signing for Manchester United (Sky Sports).

In the end, Fletcher would never play for Celtic throughout his career. Instead, he would go on to play well over 300 games for United and win 16 honours with the Red Devils (Transfermarkt).

However, Classic Football Shirts posted a photo of Fletcher rocking the old 92 Celtic away shirt at their HQ yesterday. Here’s a look at the tweet below:

Not seeing Fletcher at Parkhead is regretful

Fans have always been split regarding this one. It’s not one of the nicer away shirts we’ve had over the years, but you can’t deny it has a uniqueness about it.

It’s just a shame we never managed to have Fletcher at Parkhead during his prime. After leaving United, he went on to have spells with West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City respectively before hanging up his boots.

Throughout his entire career, Fletcher never returned to Scotland to play. That’s a bit of a shame too considering what he could’ve added to the game up here.

But nobody can claim he made the wrong decision either to stay with United. Throughout his career, he won five Premier League titles, one Champions League, one FA Cup, three League Cups, five Community Shields, and one Club World Cup.

His past has been trophy-laden. That’s not even mentioning the fact he was the captain of his country too.

It would’ve been nice to see him at Parkhead, but it’s clear he still has feelings for the Hoops.
