Do you remember John Hartson? I actually remember him playing in the Premiership long ago, he was a big man and often found himself in trouble with the referee.The former Arsenal, West Ham and Celtic star has been diagnosed with brain cancer.
The ex-Wales striker went to hospital on Friday after suffering from splitting headaches, and tests revealed testicular cancer that had spread to the brain.
The 34-year-old will begin chemotherapy on Monday.
Hartson’s former club Celtic offered their support to the man who represented the club 146 times between 2001 and 2006.
“John Hartson is a man whom Celtic Football Club has immense respect and affection for,” the club said in a statement.
“He has served the club, and the game of football in general, with distinction over many years.
“Clearly, everyone at the club fully supports John and his family at this extremely difficult time. It is very difficult for us to understand what John is going through at the moment but we will offer any support we can to a great Celtic player. The thoughts and prayers of the entire Celtic family are with John at this time.”
I wish him all the best in his fight with cancer.
