    I’m sure this has been done before but inspired by Oliver Bolt today, who was the quickest Celtic player you’ve ever seen?

    Tried to rhyme off the quick ones I can think of, off the top of my head. Dare say I’ve missed a few.

    Stick your suggestion in if you can think of others!

    See I’d have said that up until I seen Burke in the flesh. Guy has such confidence in his pace he’s making up 5 yards on folk over a 20 yard foot race.

    He’s definitely the closest to Didier any way IMO.

    Agathe, the pace he shows for our second in this game is outrageous.

    Agathe slidding in with a last ditch tackle still gives me a stauner.

    Burke is the fastest since Bellamy

    Agathe was fast but invariably his run ended with a collision with an advertising hoarding

    Didi for me.
    Great winger and also as an aside, an absolute steal at the price we got. What a bargain.

    I think Burke’s absolute power when he runs is something else. It’s mental.

    I’ve never seen anybody like Agathe though. He was just full out instantly, was mental.

    Bellamy was * lightning from a standing start as well.

    Didier Agathe by some distance I remember in one game against hearts he gave Petric 40 yards on him easily and ran like * passed to henrik for a tap in!

    Agathe was one of the fastest I've seen in world football, let alone for us. Burke is just such a powerful runner though.
