Joe Hart produced a funny act during the warm up before the Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Celtic game. Norwegian reporter Ingrid Halstensen was covering the game for outlet TV 2 Sport at the Stadion Wojska Polskiego.
Live on TV, she was struck in the back by a ball. The culprit? None other than Celtic goalkeeper, Joe Hart.
The Englishman sent a ‘wayward’ long pass that hit the TV 2 reporter while she was live on air.
Fortunately the ball only hit Halstensen in the back and did not knock her over. She took it well, too, turning around briefly and smiling.
The Englishman could be seen holding his hand up in apology.
Was it intentional or not? We’ll let you make your own mind up…
Hart played the full 90 minutes as Celtic drew 1-1 with the Ukrainian side.
Celtic took the lead in the 10th minute courtesy of Artem Bondarenko’s own-goal.
But they didn’t hold the lead for long, with Mykhaylo Mudryk restoring parity 19 minutes later.
Hart apologised and maintained that it was an accident.
“I was begging to say sorry but you didn’t turn around. Apologies!” He said.
Hart played all minutes for Celtic last season and looks better than ever, but still far from an England call up so the next week will be in training and preparing for more games at club level when it returns after the international break.
