The Israel international signed for Celtic in late July and has played four games for the club at right-back but has already had some injury setbacks, having to be substituted with a dead leg during his debut against St Johnstone and then missing the following week’s Premiership win at Motherwell with a minor muscle problem.
He was also sidelined for the Hoops’ last two games against AIK and Hearts after picking up a knock in training but his tweet seems to suggest that there is a chance of him featuring against AIK tomorrow night or Rangers in the Glasgow derby on Sunday.
These Celtic fans took to Twitter to show their appreciation for the defender’s displays so far:
Big man has silenced the doubters no bad for somebody who’s “not an actual right back”
