‘The lad was a diamond’ ‘Everyone wins’ ‘This boy is class’ How one Instagram video almost united a support

With one knock-out post on Instagram Jota seems to have soothed the break-up pains of all but the most hardline Celtic supporters.

The fans are well used to seeing their heroes leave but generally it is all well sign posted. Interest surfaces, there is some media toing and froing before the deal is done and you have to be braced for regular updates with last season’s hero in different colours. Apparently it is business.

Jota’s sudden move to Al Ittihad was a shock to the system- perhaps the most ‘attached’ of Ange’s imports and certainly the only one to drop into the Brazen Head.

After the shock of the move there was something of a void in the deal, Al Ittihad took over cherished images of Jota with the yellow and black airbrush treatment.

It was almost as if Celtic hadn’t really happened, two seasons of goals, memories and celebrations wrapped in double-denim and a bumblebee top had just been created by AI.

And then, late on Sunday afternoon there was a very impassioned message. Something a bit different, not just ticking off a chore in the Social Media checklist.

Suddenly questions were answered, he had been involved just as fully, the fans hadn’t been dumped in the middle of the night. Perhaps like Brendan he might have some unfinished business to return to.
