The Portuguese youngster bagged the opening goal of the match as the on-loan Benfica star, who earns a reported £7,000-a-week, scored his eighth goal of the season.
With Callum McGregor bagging the winner on the hour mark, it was a massive result for Ange Postecoglou’s side. The win kept Celtic hot on Rangers’ heels for the top spot in the Scottish Premiership table.
As for Jota, his performance was once again met with a hugely positive reaction on social media. With the Portuguese attacker playing a key role in Celtic’s win over Aberdeen.
Indeed, the 22-year-old is slowly becoming one of the club’s most beloved players this season. And Celtic fans will be praying that the Jota’s loan move becomes permanent in the summer of 2022.
With the likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers and Kyogo Furuhashi flourishing at Celtic Park, Postecoglou’s transfer record has so far been an exceptional one with the Scottish giants.
Celtic fans laud Jota after Aberdeen heroics
Whilst Kyogo has been a revelation for Celtic, there’s no denying that Jota has utterly stolen the hearts of supporters since landing in Scotland. And his goal against the Dons further cemented the admiration fans have for the attacker.
At just 22, the Benfica loanee has a big future ahead of him in football. And Celtic fans on social media were smitten with Jota after his crucial strike for the Hoops against Aberdeen this weekend.
Here’s what some Celtic fans had to say on Twitter about Jota’s goal against Aberdeen…
