With an homage to Bertie Auld, Jota as George Michael, Salt Bae and Gavin Strachan's laptop, the Celtic Christmas ad offers

The video pulls at the heartstrings further as Ange Postecoglou remembers his father who was a huge influence in his career via a photograph on his frame. Throughout there are a number of very knowing nods to the past and moments in players careers. Goalkeeper Joe Hart is given a Celtic-branded hair and body wash gift having famously appeared in a Head & Shoulders commercial, while perhaps the funniest moment for supporters is the appearance of Gavin Strachan’s laptop.

Every year, the club creates a hilarious movie that features the first-team players and management in a variety of situations, all while promoting merchandise available at the club store. This season has been no exception, and it has the potential to be Celtic’s best yet, thanks to a number of outstanding performances and funny inclusions. It pays homage to Bertie Auld, the Lisbon Lion who died earlier this month. The film has a Celtic version of ‘Auld Lang Syne,’ with Parkhead lit up with ‘Bertie YNWA,’ a tremendously popular character.

While John Kennedy, Stevie Moods and Stephen McManus are gathered around a flip chart, Strachan gets their attention and turns a laptop towards them. When Celtic were performing poorly, the first-team coach came under fire for having a laptop or iPad on the bench. So much so, that even Twitter accounts named after Gavin’s laptop emerged. Josip Juranovic, meanwhile, impersonates famous Turkish chef ‘Salt Bae’ when he seasons the Christmas roast. The ad features members of the club’s women’s team with manager Fran Alonso rocking up in a suit which wouldn’t have looked out of place amongst the Liverpool team in the 1996 FA Cup final.

There is also a surprise appearance from goalkeeper Vasilis Barkas, coming in from the cold as Postecoglou opens the door. Unsurprisingly, however, it is Jota and Kyogo Furuhashi who steal the show. The latter is constantly delivering presents and delighted when he does so, while the Portuguese winger, accompanied by Grge Taylor on guitar, transforms into George Michael to perform ‘Faith’. The resemblance is uncanny. Thank you for reading this article. We’re more reliant on your support than ever as the shift in consumer habits brought about by coronavirus impacts our advertisers.
