    Marvin Compper: I'm here at Celtic to win titles

    By: Tony Connelly on 20 Dec, 2017 15:21

  • MARVIN Compper admitted that his heart was set on becoming a Celt from the moment he knew of Brendan Rodgers’ interest in him.

    The 32-year-old German internationalist will officially join Celtic on January 1, 2018, having signed a two-and-a-half-year deal, and he will take his Paradise bow at half-time tonight (Wednesday) during the Celtic versus Partick Thistle game.

    Having secured a move from Bundesliga side, RB Leipzig, Marvin Compper sat down with Celtic TV for an exclusive interview, his first as a Celtic player, and he admitted that his aim in joining the Hoops is to win the first title of his professional career.

    “When I first heard of Celtic’s interest I was immediately very keen and eager to come,” the new Bhoy admitted. “They are a club who play for titles and that is something which has been lacking throughout my career.

    “I was playing in good teams but never won a title. This is something I’m really looking forward to, having the possibility to play in big games for big wins.

    “Celtic is a club that is always going for the big wins. I’ve played in important games in Italy and Germany. I was in a cup final in Italy and we lost, unfortunately, but I hope I can add silverware to my career here.”

    The German internationalist only arrived in Celtic Park for the first time this week but admitted that the club’s reputation has always captivated him.

    “Celtic are obviously one of the biggest clubs in the world,” he said. “The tradition, history and the incredible supporters are what have stood out to me.

    “They are a very big name, even in Germany. Everyone in Germany knows about the ambience in the stadium and it’s seen as a football-crazy place. Celtic is a big name not only in Germany but worldwide.”
