I wish I stayed at Celtic, says Ramon Vega

Ramon Vega celebrates with legend Henrik Larsson.

Former Celtic defender Ramon Vega wishes he spent longer in Scotland, describing his stint with the Bhoys as one of the best of his career.

Speaking to GiveMeSport, the 23-cap Swiss spoke fondly of his loan spell under Martin O'Neill.

In just one season with the Scottish giants, Vega won three trophies - sealing the SPL title, the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup in a memorable season.

Vega also played for Tottenham and Watford during his stay in British football, but ranks his time at Celtic as the best.

"It was fantastic," he told GMS. "It was one of the best times I had in my career. It was a shame it was only for a short time because I'd have loved to stay longer.

"Celtic as a club itself is, from my point of view, one of the top clubs in the world. In terms of fans, the passion was immense."

Vega, who joined Spurs in a £3.75million deal in 1997 picks out the fans as a particular highlight of his stay in Scotland.

"You love to play for that club as a player. The fans really were taking care of you, they really loved you."

Playing alongside the likes of Henrik Larsson, Chris Sutton and Neil Lennon, the Hoops dominated Scotland that season, picking up an historic treble in the process.

"I was very lucky, we had a great year. We won pretty much everything you can win there at the time. It's one of the best memories of my career."
