'Stole my heart', 'What a player': Celtic fans rave about 22-year-old after 2-1 win

Celtic defeated Aberdeen 2-1 at Celtic Park this afternoon as they kept up the heat at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Goals from Jota and Callum McGregor ensured victory for Ange Postecoglou’s team and made it eight games without defeat in the Scottish Premiership.

It was important to bounce back for Celtic after their Europa League disappointment of Thursday night when they crashed out of the competition.

The Hoops lost 3-2 to Bayer Leverkusen meaning they need snookers in their attempt to reach the last 16.

Today it was all about league points though and a game against Aberdeen was always going to present a challenge to Postecoglou’s team.

For Hoops supporters, this was another chance to see Jota in action and what a player he is becoming to Celtic.

The left-winger was in fine form and scored a brilliant goal, his fifth of the season in Celtic’s league campaign.

He netted twice in the last league game against Dundee and this was yet another magnificent performance.

Jota is only on loan at Celtic. There is a permanent option in the deal though and on current form, surely that will be activated.

What have Celtic fans said about Jota?

At 22, the winger has bags of potential left to unearth and he could be a superb addition to the Celtic ranks.

Jota has been inspired since checking in from Benfica and he’d be a pretty impressive permanent capture by Postecoglou.

The Hoops needed to add some quality after last season’s disappointment and in Jota, they’ve certainly achieved that.

The youngster could be a really game-changing addition on a permanent basis and Celtic must move quickly to get him over the line.

After today’s win, we looked at what Celtic fans were saying about the performance of Jota.
