Renowned for his technical ability, Moravčík was capable of unleashing powerful, accurate shots, and pinpoint crosses with both feet.

The 1990s saw him moving to Western Europe to play for Saint-Étienne, Bastia and MSV Duisburg before moving to Celtic in November 1998. Signed by fellow Slovak Dr Jozef Vengloš for a fee of just £300,000. Initially sceptical of the impact a player aged then 33 could have, he became a hero in the eyes of the Parkhead faithful, forming an outstanding partnership with Henrik Larsson.

Moravčík’s first two goals for Celtic came against their arch-rivals Rangers on 21 November 1998, in what turned out to be a memorable 5–1 victory in the midst of a very poor season. He stayed at Celtic Park for a total of four seasons, winning two SPL championships, one Scottish Cup and two Scottish League Cups. Former team-mates Chris Sutton and Stiliyan Petrov have both highlighted his two-footedness, his ability with both feet.
