Tyrone and Slaughtneil hurling manager Michael McShane thinks Celtic player could play corner forward

“Needs to up his game.”

Michael McShane is a busy man, between managing the Tyrone county hurlers and leading Slaughtneil to an All-Ireland club semi-final just a couple of weeks ago, he doesn’t like to be idle.

However, one past time that he does enjoy is following his beloved Celtic, the team that he passionately supports.

Last night he was in Park head, when his favourite hoops records an historic Old Firm victory over Rangers, to ensure that they go top of the Scottish Premier League.

Celtic had been having a difficult season to begin with, drifting behind the reigning champions, but as Steven Gerrard left the blues, Celtic were just finding their groove.

Last night’s derby was teed up perfectly, with only two points separating the sides, the green and white brigade needed a victory to go top.

McShane is of course very successful in the world of hurling, so much so that even when celebrating a huge victory in Celtic Park, he’s already thinking about his team back home.

Grabbing a quick snap with Celts hero Jota after the game, McShane tweeted saying that he may have a role for the Portuguese star.

“The cub wants to play corner forward next week. Needs to up his game.”

All joking aside, if the floppy haired hero could pick up a hurl even a fraction as quick as he has taken to life in Glasgow, he would be a valued asset in any team.
