Jota. Gonnae just sign eh?
That’s probably the first thing I would say to the guy if I ever met him on the street.
He has been a sensation and all the chat over the last fortnight has been whether or not he will join the Hoops permanently at the end of his loan deal.
One pundit that reckons that all the signs point towards the move that will give the fans an early Christmas present is Gordon Dalziel.
Dalziel was speaking on Clyde 1 Superscoreboard when he said , “See the advantage of the ball being in Celtic’s court, the player has got to be happy as well.
“I was going to say. He looks like he loves the place. He looks like he loves the supporters.
“He looks like he loves Scottish football.
“He looks like he loves the Scottish weather. I hope he stays as well.”
Fingers crossed that all those factors are enough to persuade the 22 year old sensation to swap the sunshine of Benfica for the downpours of Lennoxtown.
I think the signs are good. I think the fact that he is revered by the support coupled with regular football will persuade Jota to sign on the dotted line.
Just imagine what winning silverware will do to help tip the scales in our favour.
