Celtic fans react to Joe Hart display against AZ Alkmaar
A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Joe Hart after the goalkeeper’s display in the first-leg of their Europa League play-off tie against AZ Alkmaar on Wednesday.
Ange Postecoglou’s men have one foot in the group-stages after a 2-0 win at Parkhead.
Kyogo Furuhashi got the opener with a sublime volley. The lead was doubled in the second-half after James Forrest’s effort took a huge deflection.
Celtic were outstanding at times. And they have now won five times in a row in all competitions.
But they also required Hart to make a couple of important saves, including one outrageous stop in the first-half.
The Englishman managed to divert Vangelis Pavlidis’ effort onto the post with his big toe. He deserved the fortune of the ball coming back in front of the line.
He also caught the eye for one moment in the second-half when Anthony Ralston received treatment. The 34-year-old demonstrated his leadership by getting the group together and sending a clear message.

I can’t believe people actually doubted the quality of Joe Hart and him signing for us; guy has been a revelation so far, made some big saves and is already becoming an established leader at the back.
A steal at £1m.
