Celtic fans were reminiscing over Craig Bellamy’s stunning hat-trick against Dundee United which took place over 15 years ago.
The former Wales international scored a brilliant trio of goals as the Hoops had a topsy-turvy encounter with the Terrors. His first goal may have been the best of the bunch as he smashed home a stunning strike from the right-hand side of the penalty box. Bellamy’s second came from a pass right through the centre of the pitch as he chipped the ball into the back of the net.
One fan called the strikes ‘unreal’.
Unreal hat-trick that day 🍀🍀🍀

The Welshman’s third proved to be just as simple as his second with the retired attacker slotting home after Chris Sutton flicked on the ball. Overall, he had a great spell with the Glasgow outfit, scoring seven times in 12 league appearances (via Soccerbase). Supporters remembered the hat-trick with fondness as they took to Twitter to react to a video of the 2005 match. Here is a selection of tweets:
