The new Jota chant from Celtic fans is groovy AF

Portuguese forward Jota who is currently on loan at Scottish club Celtic from Benfica has already established himself as a favourite amongst fans.

The Portuguese has netted 8 times for the Hoops this season and also grabbed 6 assists.

His impressive performances have gained quite a bit of fanfare and the club are actively looking to secure his signature as a permanent signing.

To showcase their love for the 22-year-old, Bhoys fans recently unveiled a new chant, singing his praises.

In a clip that emerged after Celtic’s 2-0 victory against Hibernian, fans can be seen getting their groove on and singing the new chant in full voice.

The original song on which the tune is based is the smash hit track Dragostea din Tei’ by Moldovan Eurodance group O’zone.

The lyrics of ‘Jota on the wing’ chant go something like this –

‘When you score you make the Celtic sing
Jota on the wing, Jota Jota on the wing
Every time you’re on the ball we know
There’s gonna be a goal
Our superstar from Portugal’

The chant is so popular that UK alt-pop artist Ellie Dixon was asked to perform an acoustic version of it on BBC before Celtic’s League Cup final against Rangers.

Ellie Dixon’s version was then further remixed by rapper BEMZ –
