    Luca Connell: I want to play my part in making more Celtic history

    By: Tony Connelly on 30 Jun, 2019 09:31

  • LUCA Connell is thrilled to have joined Celtic, as the 18-year-old midfielder explained in an exclusive interview with the official club website.

    “It’s unbelievable to sign for such a massive club known all around the world,” he said. “It’s a dream come true, something I’ve dreamed of since I was a little boy. It’s crazy, and it hasn’t really sunk in. I’m signing for such a big club with so much history. Hopefully I can help us make more history and I can’t wait to get started."

    The Republic of Ireland Under-19 internationalist said the success of the Treble Treble champions was a big factor in his decision to commit his future to Celtic. He recognised the many promising talents emerging from the Celtic Youth Academy and said the competition to play in front of the Celtic fans at Paradise was a huge personal motivation.

    “You can’t turn your head away from all the trophies and success Celtic have won recently, and being involved in the Champions League,” he said. “There are a lot of good players here so it’s a challenge to break through. It’s something new and fresh. With the ethics of this club, all the youngsters will be pushing through. That’s healthy competition. We’ll all be mates off the pitch and on it we have to prove who’s the best.

    “The stadium is unbelievable. Just looking round and seeing the size of it is unreal. I can’t imagine what it’s like when it’s full and hopefully I’ll experience that, playing out in front of the amazing fans with us winning.

    “I had a look at videos of Celtic Park and the background of the club so it’s made me really excited to play. If you’re not excited to be involved in games here, then you need to hang your boots up.”
