Throwback: Van Dijk dribbles from own half in incredible Celtic solo goal


Virgil van Dijk has established himself as quite possibly the best centre-back in the world at Liverpool – but the clues were there for all to see at Celtic.

Van Dijk spent two years at Celtic, winning the title in both seasons, before moving to the Premier League by joining Southampton in 2015.

The defender showed his class in all areas in Scotland, notably catching the eye with his free-kick taking ability.

And the SPFL reminded everyone of one of Van Dijk’s most special moments in a Celtic shirt this week by tweeting out his fine solo effort which secured a 1-0 victory at St Johnstone.
