Owen Hargreaves has said on BT Sport 2 (11:27pm, November 25, 2021) that he rates Celtic winger Jota highly.

The former Manchester United midfielder was impressed by Jota’s performance for Celtic against Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

The 22-year-old winger scored a brilliant goal and produced yet another fantastic performance.

Ange Postecoglou’s side, though, lost the Europa League match 3-2.

Celtic cannot progress to the next round of the Europa League this season.

Impressive Celtic

Hargreaves said on BT Sport 2 (11:27pm, November 25, 2021): “What a finish from Jota. He is a great player to watch. Great player, really good, technically good.”

Celtic should get Jota deal done

Jota is only on loan at Celtic from Benfica at the moment.

And, in our view, the Hoops should make Jota’s loan deal permanent.

They simply have to.

Jota has been superb for Celtic so far this season and has established himself as a key figure in the team.

The winger has scored four goals and provided four assists in nine Scottish Premiership games so far this season.

Jota has scored two goals and given two assists in five Europa League matches this campaign.

Against Bayer last night, the winger took one shot which ended in goal, had a pass Accra of 77.8%, won one header and took 33 touches.
