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Gershon lasted just over an hour of the game in Dingwall before being withdrawn and he told the Celtic View: "I've had a bit of bad luck since I came as I've had two small injuries that took me two weeks to recover from, so this put me on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 have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
