Rami Gershon: Celtic defender ready to make an impact

The Israel centre-half has seen his chance of making an impact stalled by two spells on the treatment table.

Having made an impressive scoring debut away to Inverness Caledonian Thistle in February, he was forced to wait until last weekend to make his second outing in a Hoops jersey as the champions-elect suffered a 3-2 reversal to Ross County.

Gershon lasted just over an hour of the game in Dingwall before being withdrawn and he told the Celtic View: "I've had a bit of bad luck since I came as I've had two small injuries that took me two weeks to recover from, so this put me on the back foot.

"But now I'm starting to get fit. The most important thing for me is to stay fit as the two games I've played is very far from what I can do in terms of my skills. But I'm sure I can come back to the level I know I'm capable of.

"I feel good. I need more confidence that comes with playing more minutes and then I am sure I can come back to the Rami I know.

"I can give you a lot of excuses now - a new country, a different style of football and injuries - but no one cares about that. I have to take my chances and be good all the time. This is how I think. And this is the goal I have in my head now."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
