Celtic Fans Praise Debutant Stephen Welsh After ‘Solid’ Debut at Hamilton

Celtic Fans Praise Debutant Stephen Welsh After ‘Solid’ Debut at Hamilton

Celtic supporters have been praising defender Stephen Welsh after his senior debut for the club in today’s win at Hamilton.

With Jozo Simunovic still wrestling with a long-term knee injury, Welsh was given the nod to start his first-ever match in the Ladbrokes Premiership this afternoon in Neil Lennon’s back-three defence, and the 20-year-old certainly didn’t look out of place.

Welsh spent the first-half of the season on-loan at Championship side Greenock Morton where he impressed, and it seems he’s done enough to convince Lennon he deserves a shot at being a first-team regular for the reigning Scottish champions.

It remains to be seen if Welsh will retain his spot in the starting XI for Wednesday night’s tricky-looking clash away to Motherwell but he can sleep tonight knowing he’s impressed plenty of the Hoops’ fanbase:

What did you make of Welsh’s performance in today’s 4-1 victory, and should he keep his jersey for Wednesday’s clash?
