Celtic picked up an important win over Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership last night and defender Stephen Welsh impressed the fans with his performance.

The 21-year-old returned to the starting line-up in place of Shane Duffy and produced a flawless display at the back for the home side.

Welsh has been quite impressive for Celtic this season and Neil Lennon’s decision to pick Duffy ahead of him in the last game did not go down well with the fans.

The youngster has once again shown that he is a better defender than Duffy and he needs to be one of the first names on the team sheet every week.

Regular football will be crucial to his development and Celtic will have to manage his game time better in the coming months.

The Hoops looked much calmer and composed at the back with him marshalling the defence.

Welsh has formed an impressive understanding with Kristoffer Ajer and Lennon must look to keep his centre-back pairing intact if he wants the side to do well defensively for the rest of the season.

Some Celtic fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the 21-year-old’s performance and here is what they had to say.
