Danielle McMahon - Mad about Celtic... and Dagenham & Redbridge
Total Football Girl Danielle McMahon is mad about football. Originally from Scotland, she supports Celtic... and her local club Dagenham & Redbridge. And she used to play a bit too.
Here, she talks to Total Football's Elizabeth Horsfall about her interest in football and her hopes for the future....
Do you support any other teams - or is Celtic the only team for you?
I support a few football teams but the club that is closest to my heart is the mighty Glasgow Celtic Football Club! I believe they are having one of their best seasons yet and long may it continue. The strength of the squad this year is second to none with the likes of Gary Hooper and Anthony Stokes, and the appointment of Neil Lennon as the club's manager was one of the best decisions to have been made by the club.
Do you ever get to see any games?
Yes I also support my local team, Dagenham and Redbridge FC, as well as watching as many Celtic versus Rangers matches as I can - the 'Old Firm' games are by far the best experience compared to any other football match to be part of, the atmosphere is electric and you are guaranteed top class football, an unpredictable result and an array of the best footballers within the SPL.
Who is your favourite player?
Beram Kayal. An outstanding player who possesses strong leadership, team attitude, quick thinker and the ability to contribute goals along with the strikers.
Have you played football yourself?
Yes, I have always been around a football even as a child so growing up I would always be caught having 5 a side matches with the boys in my neighbourhood. I definitely believe for any male that is passionate about the game that it's the best career move possible, either to be a player or to be involved in football in some way.
Who will win the Premier League this season?
Celtic to win the SPL - no surprises there, given their position in the league. For the English Premier League I would say Man City, they have the strongest team to challenge the reigning champions Manchester United and with Roberto Mancini as manager I believe they 110% deserve to win the Premier League this year. Sergio Aguero is the most inspiring and promising player in the Premier League this season and to already have scored 21 goals is a fantastic achievement.
Why do you want to get into football presenting?
Simply because I love the sport of football. I believe I have the right qualities to be a successful football presenter, I am constantly up to date with all football news and fixtures and I think my charming and charismatic personality along with my smile will be in high demand with both football fans and personalities alike!
