Socceroos star Aaron Mooy, who has largely been a journeyman throughout his career, looks to have finally found a home at Celtic.
After spells at Manchester City, Huddersfield, Bolton Wanderers and Brighton, and a brief endeavor in China with Shanghai Port, Mooy joined The Celts back in July.
Since his arrival at Parkhead, the 32-year-old has been used sparingly by manager Ange Postecoglou, with most of his appearances being off the bench.
However, that hasn’t stopped the Australian from leaving quite the impression on Celtic supporters, who’ve already whipped up a cracking chant for their midfielder.
On a night where the player grabbed his first two goals for the Hoops against Hibernian, an away end packed with Celts quickly devised a chant to praise the Australian.
Inspired by Leeds’ chant for Harry Kewell, fans at the venue swiftly swapped in Mooy’s name, and the tune itself remained Boney M’s Pop classic ‘Daddy Cool’.
Choruses of ‘Aaron! Aaron Mooy!’ took over Easter Road, all paired alongside rhythmic clapping.
And the appreciation didn’t just end there, as another chant centred around Mooy recently popped up online.
Created by Hoops’ supporters, the chant surfaced through a home-recorded video displaying the song in action.
Pints in hand, the fans in the clip made a compelling case for the chant to make it to Parkhead, the lyrics to which can be read below.
‘Number 7 is Aaron Mooy,
Number 8 is Aaron Mooy’
‘Number 9 is Aaron Mooy,
Number 10 is Aaron Mooy.’
‘Number 11 is Aaron Mooy,
Oh, we all dream of a
Team of Aaron Mooys.
A team of Aaron Mooys
A team of Aaron Mooys..’
Since going online, the chant has gained a decent bit of popularity, and fans are already calling for it to be sung at Parkhead.

With Celtic nine points clear of 2nd placed Rangers, the title is within touching distance, and every game remains crucial.
Mooy’s shifts from the bench will likely be very important as the finish line draws closer, giving the Australian a chance to win even more favor from Celtic fans.
