Shunsuke Nakamura was given a hero’s welcome by Celtic fans at Celtic Park on Sunday.

Shunsuke Nakamura was at Celtic Park to watch his former club Celtic take on St. Mirren in the Scottish Premiership.

The former Japan international is considered a Celtic legend and was on the books of the Glasgow-based outfit for four years between 2005 and 2009.

During his time at Parkhead, Nakamura endeared himself to the Celtic fans, and was key in the club winning the Scottish Premier League (now Scottish Premiership) title three times, the Scottish Cup once and the Scottish League Cup twice.

On Sunday, Nakamura, now at Japanese outfit Yokohama F. Marinos, returned to Celtic Park to watch his former club get the better of St. Mirren 4-1 and go six points clear at the top of the league table.
