Celtic’s young defensive star Stephen Welsh made his first team debut today against Hamilton as the young defender takes to Twitter to express how he feels.

Most Celtic fans before today’s team announcement probably wouldn’t have known who Welsh was, but after a solid display against Hamilton and walking away with a debut 4-1 win under his belt, Hoops fans will remember now after sailing 7 points clear from closest rivals Rangers.

Welsh spent the first half of this season out on loan at Greenock Morton and covered the right back position.

Lennon opted to keep a hold of Welsh to help cover the Celtic defense as the champions are seriously lacking cover through injuries.

On a day that Celtic went seven points clear over Rangers at the top of the table, it’s great to see Lennon blood another youngster into his first-team plans.

Welsh said on the social media site: “Unforgettable day making my debut, and a great win as well.”
