  • Wakaso wants to be history Bhoy

    Wakaso wants to be history Bhoy

  • CELTIC'S new signing Mubarak Wakaso said he has come to Paradise to make history.

    The versatile winger, signed from Russian side Rubin Kazan on loan, is the first Ghanaian to play for the Scottish champions and he's eager to impress manager Ronny Deila straight away.

    Speaking to the official Celtic website, Wakaso said: “I’m very happy to be here because since I arrived I've met a lot of people and they have been amazing to me and that’s why I’m here.

    “Celtic's a big team to play at and I have to do my best to see the team through.

    “I want to make history for my country and for the team because I am the first Ghanaian player to play for Celtic andI have to set an example for the upcoming ones, so I need to make history for the team, for my nation and for myself.

    “I've not seen much of the Scottish league but the one team I have been watching, Celtic, is enough to judge it. I’m ready to play.”

    Celtic's new No.32, Wakaso has come to Celtic after spending his career playing for a host of teams across Europe, particularly in Spain.

    He believes his experience on the continent can help him adjust to the manager’s style of play and he's looking forward to getting his Celtic career underway.

    “I don’t really know much about Scottish football but I know a little about Celtic because I have been watching Celtic since I was young," he said, "and I saw the amazing supporters they have here. And the kind of players that pass through here makes me feel and see that Celtic is a great team to be at.

    “I'm here to build my career up again like I was doing in Spain and to help the team.

    “I had no concerns after Tuesday’s loss. They say you should appreciate what you have in hand because we have Europa League and although we wanted Champions League, losing is part of football so we have to appreciate what we have now and make use of it because the Europa League is also a good competition.

    “I've learned a lot and it always makes me feel I can make it great and to be great you have to work hard and I’m ready to do it.”
