Celtic Fans Made Impression On Arsenal Legend

Posted by

Arsenal legend Ian Wright states his 4 months at Celtic were unforgettable as the fans made him feel very welcome in such a short time.

The John Barnes era was not a good time to be a Celtic fan as Wright was tasked with trying to fill a Larsson void as the God-like player broke his leg.

The English legend didn’t really have a good time on the pitch but states he was proud to wear the Hoops shirt as he idolized Dalglish and McGrain growing up.

Ian Wright on Celtic stint

Arsenal legend Ian Wright’s brief but painful Celtic career will always be connected with one of the most demoralising nights in Celtic’s history.

Wright was in the twilight of an impressive career when he moved to Glasgow in October 2000 on a short term deal from West Ham United.

The striker had been on loan at Nottingham Forest when Celtic boss John Barnes – an ex-England colleague of Wright – came calling in search of a replacement for the injured Henrik Larsson.

The player scored three goals in 5 starts for the club. (CelticWiki)
