Celtic striker Mohamed Bangura believes he can prove himself to the club’s fans this season after an injury-hit first season in Glasgow.
The 22-year-old failed to score in 15 appearances for Neil Lennon’s side after arriving in a £2million deal from AIK Solna.
Bangura was ruled out of action for 12 weeks with a knee injury during his debut season in Scotland but the forward feels supporters will see an improvement in his performances this term.
He told the Scottish Sun: “I can’t wait to go back to Celtic and start working again.
“I am looking forward to the new season and what it will bring.
“I feel the Celtic fans have still to see the best of me — they will hopefully see a lot more this year.
“I feel happy and I’m excited about the prospect of playing in the Champions League.”
Twelve of Bangura’s games for Celtic have been as a substitute and he is desperate to force his way into the starting line-up.
He added: “If I get some playing time, then I can become a big success with Celtic.
“I want to help the team succeed and win more trophies after last season.
“But, most of all, I want to give the fans some joy.”
