It’s always nice to see and hear former players reflect on their time at the club and that is what Marc Crosas has been doing recently.
The former Barcelona man perhaps never really got a chance to show what he could do for us in the long-term but plenty appreciated his quality when he was on the ball.
It looks as though, despite the lack of game-time, he had a blast in Glasgow, too, with these comments from him being posted on Twitter by Lisbon Lion:

Plenty of our fans have responded to this, then, and it looks as though most think he could have had a better career here with the right chance…
Sometimes it's all about timing @marccrosas and unfortunately you weren't suited for our style at the time….put you in today's team and your Celtic career woulda been so different. Would be a standout in today's side,in my opinion. Great passer

Thought he was a good player for us that deserved more chances. Mind a game at Fir Park when he started and owned the game and we were 4 up by half time.

We wasted a huge opportunity with this guy. The whole team should have been built around his ability.

From what I remember about him he was a neat little player with plenty of quality in possession.
He perhaps didn’t quite provide what we needed at the time but I do agree he could have been a great player for us if he was playing now under Brendan.
It’s nice to see how he’s looked back on his time at the club, though, and he’ll always be welcomed back.
Thoughts, Bhoys? Let me know!
