Stephen Welsh, a robust Scottish lad, was delivered into this world on 19 January 2000. Now 24, he struts his stuff as a central defender for the mighty Celtic. Towering at 6ft 3in and tipping the scales at 12st 3lb, he casts an imposing figure at the heart of the defence. Recently, he's been donning the number 57 shirt.

During the 2023 - 2024 season, Welsh got himself involved in ten Premiership tussles, earning five starts and making an appearance five times from the bench. It should also be noted he had a taste of Euro nights, featuring in a Champions League tie. The Scottish Cup wasn't neglected either, with two starts chalked up and one cameo appearance.

Welsh's association with Celtic started back in 2017 when he joined the club as a trainee. However, a move to Greenock Morton in the Championship on loan was on the cards in August 2019. The stint proved to be short-lived, with a return to Celtic in January 2020 post completion of his loan.

Breaking into the first team wasn't a walk in the park. A solitary appearance was all he managed in the initial 2019 - 2020 season at Celtic. However, perseverance paid off and he chalked up 16 displays in the next season, even squeezing in a goal. Appearances did dwindle to a mere ten in the subsequent season but managed to rebound somewhat with four outings in the 2022 - 2023 season along with another goal.

The following 2023 - 2024 season saw him maintain a similar frequency of ten first-team appearances. We can all but wonder what the future holds for Welsh in the approaching 2024 - 2025 season at Celtic.
