Celtic fans were praising a strike by former player John Hartson in the Hoops’ famous win over Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup.
Back during the 2002/2003 season, the Celtic Park outfit defeated the Merseysiders 2-0 in the second-leg of their European tie with the Welshman settling the game in fine fashion. After receiving the ball outside the box, the retired forward side-stepped Dietmar Hamann before unleashing an unstoppable strike into the top-right corner (via EuropeanGoals).
One fan labelled the strike a ‘peach’.

It was just one goal during what proved to be a miserable season for the Glasgow outfit as they went on to finish as runners-up in three separate competitions. Having already finished second in the league to their arch-rivals and lost to them in the Scottish League Cup final, Celtic went on to lose against Porto in the final of Europe’s second-tier competition. Supporters lauded the strike by one of their former players as they took to Twitter to react. Here are some tweets:
Yaass brilliant… Check all the Celtic fans in home end behind goal bouncing up👏magic🍀
