While most of the talk at Celtic Park revolves around the possibility of a double when they take on Hibernian in the Scottish Cup final later this month, the popular defender is keen to go one better.

"It is my first time playing in Europe and coming to Celtic was a great move

for me," said the 24-year-old, who was part of Nigerian team that won the Africa Cup of Nations in February.

"My aim is to keep playing and keep improving and do better than what I am

doing now. It is going to be a great season but I cannot achieve this on my own.

"I have to thank everybody because without them I would not be here or have won the Nations Cup.

"The fans, the players and the manager really made me welcome and made me a better player.

"Right now the most important thing is the cup final, which I know is going to be a great achievement for us at Celtic because winning the double is something they have not done for a while."

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.
