Charlie Mulgrew congratulates son after signing Celtic pro contract

Former Celtic defender Charlie Mulgrew has congratulated his son, Joshua, after he signed a professional contract with the Scottish Champions. The 16-year-old has followed in his dad’s footsteps after committing his future to Celtic.

Taking to Instagram, Mulgrew shared a photo of Joshua in the Celtic Boardroom putting pen to paper on his deal.

It is important that the youngster is judged on his own merits and not against his dad, who was an excellent player for Celtic. Mulgrew is fondly remembered for his time at the club – playing left back, left wing, centre back and central midfield. He was a regular lieutenant under Neil Lennon during his first spell but the arrival of Brendan Rodgers resulted in the end of his time at Celtic.

Mulgrew was Lennon’s first signing in 2010 and played a variety of positions in his time at Celtic, including left wing in a win at Ibrox in 2011. He started his career at Celtic but after a loan move to Dundee United, he joined Aberdeen on a permanent basis. During his time at Pittodrie, he earned a move back to Celtic – scoring a sensational free kick at Celtic Park probably helped.

Mulgrew won five league titles and two Scottish Cups as well as winning the Player of the Year accolades in 2012 for a stunning season, in which he deputised as a central defender. The defender spent six years at Celtic, making 208 appearances and scoring 29 goals.
