Rock band Primal Scream appear to be enjoying the impact of new signing Shane Duffy at Celtic after his glorious debut over the weekend, sending out a tweet to their 100,000+ followers earlier today.

The same post was also uploaded to the band’s Instagram account, which boasts almost another 100,000 followers.

Lead singer Bobby Gillespie is a well known Celtic fan and no doubt took great joy in our 5-0 victory over Ross County on Saturday, during which Duffy powered in a wonderful header to open his goalscoring account at the club.

Invoking the musical legacy of David Bowie, the band clearly think Duffy is on his way to making himself a massive favourite amongst supporters.

Duffy’s hero status will not be in doubt if he helps us towards the silverware we all desire this season.

Although clearly still getting used to his teammates and the tactical set-up at Celtic, as well as building his match fitness, he’s started in grand fashion.

The Republic of Ireland captain will likely only get better as the matches continue thick and fast.

He’ll be one of the stars and leaders in the dressing room we rely on in the massive upcoming derby against Rangers in just over a month’s time.

Duffy is just one of five signings that Celtic have made this summer, all of whom are getting minutes and making an impact in Neil Lennon’s squad.

With just a few weeks to go until the end of the transfer window, the club will be on the hunt for more first-team quality players who can add something to our ten-in-a-row push.

Could a new left-back be on the cards after the departure of Boli Bolingoli? That’s what I’m hoping for.

In other news, a former summer Celtic target has handed in a transfer request.
