Celtic fans got to know recent signing Vasilis Barkas a bit better on Thursday.

The Greek keeper answered questions from Hoops supporters on Twitter, ranging from Shane Duffy to his grasp of the Scottish dialect.

The entire Q and A can be found on the official Celtic Twitter feed.

However, if you don’t fancy venturing on to Twitter just now, we’ve summed up all of the main talking points in this article.

What Barkas had to say

Barkas revealed his best pal at Celtic, and it was perhaps a bit of a surprising choice.

Given that the keeper was a multi-million pound arrival, you may have expected him to suggest one of Celtic’s first-team stars.


But instead he went for fellow keeper Conor Hazard. A player who is yet to make his first competitive appearance for the club.

Barkas then gave a politician’s answer when asked whether he would be able to keep a bullet Shane Duffy header out of the net.

On life in Scotland, the Greek stopper had some nice to things to say. Even if he has struggled to adapt to the accent.


And Barkas also revealed just what Hoops hero Georgios Samaras had said to him prior to the move.

Barkas could do with a settled defence in front of him

Barkas has made a pretty decent start to life in Glasgow, and put in his best display yet against Ross County on Saturday.

Like the defence in front of him, he will need more playing time as a cohesive group, in order to try and built relationships on the pitch.

Hopefully, for his sake, Neil Lennon decides to play a settled defence in the coming weeks as we gear up for some important clashes.

But the early signs are good for Barkas. He seems to be settling in well.
