Brendan Rodgers’ attacking options were improved after Celtic signed Marco Tilio, Hyun-jun Yang and Luis Palma in the last window.

On August 30th, Palma arrived at Celtic Park from Greek side Aris, and four days later Rodgers included him in the squad for Celtic’s 1-0 win over Rangers. He was an unused substitute and is waiting to make his debut for the club.

DIEZ interviewed the Honduras international and after discussing his country’s latest outings against Jamaica and Grenada, the focus was on his transfer to Celtic.

When asked about his adaptation at Celtic, the 23-year-old said he’s hopeful of making his first appearance for Rodgers’ side when they face Dundee at Celtic Park this weekend.

“Good. I arrive tomorrow night, I train on Friday, we play a game on Saturday, hoping that I can have a chance, and on Tuesday the Champions League,” he said.

The Celtic summer signing was also pleased with the reception he received from his new teammates.

“Good. Don’t worry. They are very professional. Since I arrived, they have given me a lot of love and that fills me with confidence and joy,” Palma explained.

Palma’s compatriot, Emilio Izaguirre, had two spells [2010-2017 and 2018/19 season] at Celtic, and has already shared positive things about his time at the club.

“Very grateful to Emilio, because he spoke very highly of me at Celtic. Happy because he did that, thank him and now with the advice I need I can ask him,” Palma added.

When asked about the changes he noticed since leaving Greece for Scotland, Palma said: “Not so much, although the cold is apparently always like that, a little difficult for me.”
