  • Ajeti delighted with his start to life as a Celt

    Ajeti delighted with his start to life as a Celt

  • ALBIAN Ajeti’s Celtic goals-to-games record now stands at three-for-three, having found the net against Dundee United, Motherwell and, most recently, Ross County in Dingwall last weekend.

    The Switzerland internationalist hopes to continue his scoring streak in green and white, and has enjoyed building relationships with his team-mates all over the pitch.  

    Speaking at Lennoxtown ahead of tomorrow night’s Premiership encounter with St Mirren, Ajeti said he’s thoroughly enjoyed his time in Glasgow so far, and feels better and fitter with every passing week of training at Lennoxtown, and matchday at Paradise or further afield.

    The 23-year-old likened the intensity and aggressiveness of the Scottish game to his experiences in the English Premier League, and said the conversations he had with Neil Lennon beforehand were crucial in his decision to join the biggest team in the country.  

    “Celtic have given me this opportunity to show my qualities and they believed in my ability, that’s why I signed for Celtic,” Ajeti continued. “I feel better as a player, too. Much better than when I came. This was my first start in seven or eight months. My last start was January, and it takes a little bit of time to get back to 90 minutes, but I was happy to play 60 on Saturday.

    “I see Celtic as a big club. Everyone knows Celtic and when I signed the main reason was the gaffer. I spoke a couple of times with him and he gave me the confidence and made it an easy decision. This was one of the main reasons I signed and also another important point was I had to get back to be playing football. A striker not playing, there’s nothing worse than that.”

    Looking ahead to tomorrow’s night game against St Mirren in Paisley, Ajeti added: “We have watched some videos of St Mirren. We need to prepare game-by-game.

    “Tomorrow will be a tough game, they will try to fight and keep it 0-0 for as long as possible. We can score at any time, which means we’ll have to be patient.”
