Summer Celtic signing Luis Palma was among the goalscorers in an emphatic midweek win for Honduras.

The Central American country were in CONCACAF Nations League action overnight. After losing their opener at the weekend, they responded to thump Grenada 4-0 and move up to third in the six-team section.

Palma played the entirety of the match, producing when it mattered from the penalty spot for his side’s third goal. Edwin Rodriguez (2) and Choco Lozano scored the other Honduras goals.

The 3:10am (Celtic Park time) kick-off completes a nice return home for Palma. Yesterday, we spoke about how the Celtic influence was already clear to see with those close to him.

Attention will now turn to what the winger can produce in a Celtic shirt. He has already had a taste of the biggest fixture in Scottish football, albeit as an unused substitute, so should have some idea what he’s returning to later this week.

He will probably be somewhere up in the air by the time you’re reading this. With our game against Dundee just a matter of days away, and two training sessions to come, he’ll be wanting to get involved as soon as possible.

We’re backing him to make his debut this weekend, but perhaps only from the bench. Regardless, the Luis Palma story is about to arrive at Celtic. We can’t wait for it to start.
