Celtic fans react to Virgil Van Dijk winning PFA Player of the Year

Virgil Van Dijk has a lot to thank Celtic for, they were the ones who took a risk on him and allowed him to play football in Britain, he stayed for two years, played in the Champions League and became an excellent defender in that time before moving to Southampton for £15 million in 2015.

On the South Coast Van Dijk grew as a defender and emerged as a real leader for the Saints before joining Liverpool for £75 million last January, in truth that price looks like an absolute bargain as the Dutchman has been the best defender in the league by miles this season.

Sunday night however, was the pinnacle of the Van Dijk’s career as he was voted PFA Player of the Year in what has been a stellar season for the 27-year old, he is now a world-class defender and in his acceptance speech he praised Celtic for all they have done for him.

Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below…

He said: “I want to thank Celtic obviously, I will not forget.”

Celtic fans were quick to take to Twitter to praise a player clearly still close to their hearts – one fan said “once a Celt… always a Celt” whilst another added “congratulations VVD”.
