    Part of the routine was to kick long balls to his coach but unfortunately one of Hart’s efforts went wayward and ended up striking presenter Ingrid Halstensen whilst live on air.

    After the ball struck her, she pulled a surprised face but carried on her presenting duties like a true professional.

    Hart immediately knew what had happened but was unable to grab her attention to offer his apologies as she was in the midst of carrying out her media duties.

    But the former England goalkeeper didn’t pass up the chance to apologise in a post match interview with Halstensen where he also aimed a dig at himself.

    “Oh yeah sorry, I was waving to say sorry but you didn’t turn around. Apologies,” Hart told TV2 Sport.

    “Were you live at the time? Sorry. My goalie coach was literally five yards away. That’s why my career has gone where it has gone.”

    Hart was alluding to his time at Manchester City when he was replaced as City No.1 by Pep Guardiola for not being efficient with his feet.

    The Spanish tactician subsequently brought in Claudio Bravo with Hart heading out for loan spells with Torino and West Ham before eventually signing for Burnley on a permanent deal in 2018.

    Celtic picked up their first point of this season’s Champions League campaign against the Ukrainian side.

    Artem Bondarenko’s own-goal gifted the Hoops a 10th-minute lead put Ange Postecoglou’s men were pegged back on the half-hour when Mykhailo Mudryk fired Shakhtar level.
