Joe Hart to end goalkeeping career at the end of the season

Celtic has officially announced that their goalkeeper, Joe Hart, will be hanging up his gloves at the conclusion of this season. At 36 years old, Hart is choosing to conclude a distinguished career that has seen him achieve considerable success at both the club and international levels.

In a heartfelt tribute, Celtic's coach, Brendan Rodgers, praised Hart's remarkable career and the impact he has had on football. Rodgers highlighted Hart's exceptional contributions to Celtic, acknowledging his significance not only as a player of the highest caliber but also as an extraordinary individual. He commended Hart for his professionalism, work ethic, and the leadership he has demonstrated throughout his time with the team and during his extensive career.

Rodgers also noted Hart's indelible mark on the game, expressing confidence that while Hart may be retiring from playing, his involvement in football will persist in some capacity, underscoring the sport's ingrained presence in Hart's life. The coach, along with everyone at Celtic, extended their best wishes to Hart for his future endeavors, anticipating that he will continue to achieve great success beyond his playing days.

Hart's international career with England saw him earn 75 caps, participating in major tournaments such as two European Championships (2012 and 2016) and the World Cup in 2014. However, it was at Manchester City where Hart truly made his mark. Between 2007 and 2016, he was pivotal in the club's domestic and international achievements, including two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, and two League Cups.

Following his tenure at Manchester City, Hart experienced stints with Torino, West Ham, Burnley, and Tottenham, before joining Celtic in 2021. At Celtic, he continued to add to his trophy collection, securing two league titles, a Scottish Cup, and two League Cups. This season, Hart has been a key player for Celtic, featuring in 34 matches and solidifying his position as the first-choice goalkeeper for the Scottish giants.

Joe Hart's retirement marks the end of an era for a goalkeeper who has not only achieved significant success on the pitch but has also earned the respect and admiration of teammates, coaches, and fans alike for his commitment, leadership, and professionalism.
