New star man and Celtic striker Albian Ajeti has admitted he is finally on his way to full fitness.

Ajeti, has made a brilliant start to life in Scotland scoring four times in league appearances for the club, despite not being fully fit yet.

As reported by the Herald, the Swiss striker revealed he is close to his full potential when it comes to fitness but he isn’t when it comes to scoring goals and there’s some more to come on that front.

“I feel good and close to 100% now. I’ve still got work to do but I was happy to start today and the points were the most important thing.

“I expect to score goals. But my first aim in every game is to try and help the team win. If I can score to help them, even better. If I play well or we win, the confidence is always high. I’ve never had a problem with my own confidence.

“I was pleased with my game today but we can still improve. We’re trying to get better. Every striker in this squad can score goals. Sometimes it’s me, or its Odsonne (Edouard) or (Patryk) Klimala – we can all score.”

The striker, who joined at the beginning of last month has been building up his fitness, after pretty much a year of being out of action, without playing at West Ham.

So far though, he has shown no signs of not being sharp, scoring some brilliant goals including yesterday’s superb first-time strike on his left foot.

He certainly looks like a top addition at just £5 million, who has the potential to go on and be a top player for us.

In comparison to someone like Edouard, he is a different sort of striker. He will do the hard work but he is more of a penalty box striker, who will react first to anything within that 18-yards and grab himself a goal.

If these last few performances haven’t been Ajeti at his best, I cannot wait to see the sort of level that is.
