Celtic cruised to yet another win in the Scottish league against Berwick Rangers. The former Arsenal man’s first appearance in the famous hooped shirt is unlikely to live long in the memory but he promised that better is to come from him and his new team-mates.

“I’ve never experienced anything like it,” said the 32-year-old. “The local community deserve credit for getting the pitch playable but it was icy but you get on with it and I’m just glad that there isn’t a replay because we have enough games already.

“We knew before the kick-off that it wasn’t going to be pretty – you can’t showboat on a surface like that.

“Before the match I thought I’d be able to play for 45-60 minutes but I did a little more than that. Now I’m doing extra training and it’s just like pre-season: in two weeks I’ll be flying.

Meanwhile, Celtic have also been linked with moves for Steve Sidwell and Aaron Lennon.
