The 27-year-old moved to Glasgow from the Amsterdam club in the summer in a deal worth £3million.

Injury has limited him to just a handful of appearances, but he made his return in the weekend's win over Dundee United and is now hopeful of featuring at his former home the Amsterdam ArenA on Wednesday.

"It was nice to play football pain free again, I felt no problems after the game," he said.

"I'm short of match fitness, but I'd be happy to play left or right wing. The boss wants players who are sharp, so it is up to him."

Boerrigter insists he has no regrets about leaving Ajax.

"Did Ajax let me go too easily? Maybe, maybe not. But I welcome the chance Celtic has given me," he said.

"The first year I played for Ajax, I played 21 games and scored ten times - not bad for a winger. My second year wasn't as successful, but everyone knows I had a back injury.

"Everyone at the club is looking forward to it and as a former Ajax player, it will be fun for me. I will see my former colleagues in the dressing room after the game, like I did in the first match."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
