Celtic goalkeeper Joe Hart apologized to supporters following their 1-0 defeat to Livingston in the Premiership. The loss leaves them sixth on the table after a disappointing start to the season. Hart was the best Celtic player on the pitch making two superb saves to keep out Jack Fitzwater and Alan Forest. The England veteran keeper could do nothing about Andrew Shinnie’s header in the first half that gave Livingston their first win of the season.
“We had three-quarters of the stadium for an away game and I have never seen that before in my life,” Celtic keeper Joe Hart said. “It’s a great occasion to play in, a huge club to play for. I don’t think they expect an apology. But we are one. I really feel that at this club. I feel that more than most we represent them and they represent us. They have shown up and we didn’t quite bring what they brought to the table. I think we need to acknowledge that and if we are going to do anything as a team we need to acknowledge the tougher moments and stick together.”
“They are facts and we’ve got to deal with that,” he added. “We are not running away from it. But we are trying to build something, what the manager wants from us and what we want. We are all on the same page and we are going to keep pushing. It’s the start of the season, but we can’t really afford too many more of these – if any. But we are all pulling in the same direction and believe that will work for us.”
