Albian Ajeti is putting in the hard yards to get himself in shape as quickly as possible for Celtic matches ahead.
The Swiss international didn’t get regular action at West Ham United last season and is still playing catch-up with his Bhoys teammates at Lennoxtown.
However, even through a heavy schedule of matches, the striker is doing what is required to stay in Neil Lennon’s plans alongside Odsonne Edouard.
Speaking on Celtic’s official YouTube channel, Ajeti said: “I feel better, much better, than when I first arrived. I got my first start after seven or eight months so it will still take time to make it back to playing 90 minutes.
“I’m training very hard at the moment, I’m still trying to do some extra work to get fit as soon as possible. I played 60 minutes and I had no problems.
“We have plenty of games now and I will try to improve game by game. Even when I was with the national team I was working on myself to get fit.”
His press conference performance yesterday was pretty impressive.
Hhe fielded a variety of questions about his move to Glasgow, the quality of Scottish football and a flourishing partnership with Edouard.
His composure and professionalism is easy to see, even in front of the media.
That he is grafting at Lennoxtown demonstrates how eager he is to become a main man at the club this season.
The forward has a big opportunity to rebuild his career in Scotland after his Hammers set-back.
Edouard is attracting all sorts of hype across Europe and if Ajeti can catch the eye and bundle in a quality goal tally, no doubt he will make waves too.
First and foremost though he is eager to impress the Celtic supporters and win us some silverware.
Hopefully he is once again named in tonight’s team against St Mirren.
