FOOTBALLERS often turn to the cameras and stay in the spotlight after hanging up their boots.

And Celtic legend Joe Ledley is no different as he's taken to the screens on Welsh TV.


But it's not as a football pundit!

The former Parkhead midfielder has finished filming an episode of 'Iaith Ar Daith' which is a S4C programme following Welsh celebrities' journeys in learning their native language.

The show helps viewers and the biggest names in the country learn Welsh.

Ledley shared several snaps of himself on social media during filming, saying he enjoyed the experience and admitted he can't wait to learn more.
