Celtic Christmas video puts Jota centre stage as star goes all in on George Michael comparison. But there’s plenty more to unpack and Record Sport have taken a look for a few other moments you might have missed. Kyogo Furuhashi is one of the most popular players of the modern era at Parkhead so it was no surprise to see him take on a starring role here.
Gavin Strachan bringing his laptop to dinner as Ange-a-Claus, Jota as George Michael, and Ange-a-Claus. Celtic fans got a taste of Christmas early on Tuesday when the club released their annual Christmas film, which was packed with details and Easter eggs that warmed hearts as the temperatures began to drop. The Parkhead media team created a 3-minute video that greeted the holiday season to Glasgow’s east end in a thoughtful and amusing manner. However, there were so many blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments that it took a few rewatches to really appreciate the attention to detail. Everyone saw Jota do his best George Michael impression with Greg Taylor on guitar, and Josip Juranovic’s ‘Salt Bae’ nod was hard to miss.
Comparisons with former Celtic forward Shunsuke Nakamura were inevitable when he arrived from Vissel Kobe given the similar playstyle of the two Japan stars. But while it may be lazy to label him the next Nakamura, it seems he and the club are embracing it with both arms. He’s seen in the opening moments with a picture in the background appearing to show him taking Nakamura’s place at Celtic Park. Family Guy. The clip tugs on heartstrings right from the opening moments as it then cuts to Ange Postecoglou in his office checking his diary.
He looks up and catches sight of a picture of his family on his desk. We then zoom in for a close-up of a young Ange with his folks, showing a side to the Australian we haven’t often seen so far. Ever the fashionista, we see women’s team boss Fran Alonso arrive at the party all suited and booted. Except the formal shirt is sacrificed for a Celtic Christmas tee. He exits his car, puts his sunglasses on – an essential for a November evening in the east end of Glasgow – and is met with a first bump from Carl Starfelt and Cameron Carter-Vickers.
Alonso’s stars Kelly Clark and Shen Mengyu also feature prominently in the clip as integration of the men’s and women’s set-ups continues. Transfer news LIVE as Celtic and Rangers plus Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs eye signings. Gav gets the laptop out. Men’s first-team coach Gavin Strachan has his moment in the spotlight too. Postecoglou’s backroom team appear to be debating the seating plan at a whiteboard before Strachan simplifies things. With a clear nod to his “laptop coach” reputation, he’s seen disapproving of their archaic methods and showing them how it’s done.
