Commenting upon Celtic Glasgow defeating Ferencvaros in latest Europa League match of theirs, 34-year old former Manchester City and English national team goalkeeper Joe Hart, playing for Scottish giants since early August, stated:
“It was a really good performance, it was solid, we created chances and I thought Cam and Carl (centre-backs Carter-Vickers and Starfelt) were fantastic at the back today. We didn’t really give them an opportunity and we ground them down. They were really tired in the end, and I don’t think they really had it in them, when we did get the goals, to push.
We were the ones pushing for more goals at the end. So it was a good performance, we perform well in Europe as a footballing team, not results-wise, which is the most frustrating thing. For a 3.30 kick-off on a Tuesday afternoon, to have this place full – we could only win, otherwise we’d have really let the people down.
We’re building on a few results at the moment and we want to keep going, but we know we’re going to have to go there and perform. We’re quite consistent in how we perform, and it’s pretty obvious how we are going to play, but we are just getting better at it, better at retaining the ball. We are going to lose the ball with the way we play, but we are ready to hoover it up and get back on with it again”.
