Scotland are through to the European Championships, and few could blame their players for still being in celebration mode.

Thursday night’s penalty shoot-out win over Serbia means Scotland are into their first major tournament since the 1998 World Cup, with Steve Clarke doing what no other manager has done post-Millennium.

The win meant a lot to all connected with Scottish football, and that goes for a player who left Celtic at the end of last season.

Defender Jozo Simunovic spent five seasons with the Bhoys following a 2015 move from Dinamo Zagreb, racking up 129 appearances for the club.

The 26-year-old’s contract expired this past summer, and after a series of injury problems, Celtic decided to let him go.

Simuovic surprisingly still hasn’t been signed anywhere, and Celtic have been unconvincing defensively this season with Shane Duffy struggling.

Simunovic tweeted his congratulations to Scotland, sending his well-wishes to his former Celtic teammates whilst acknowledging just how much it means.

Celtic fans replied by urging Simunovic to come back to Parkhead, believing that he can help solve Neil Lennon’s defensive issues.
