Forgotten Celtic defender Cristian Gamboa has told Celtic fans he’s doing everything he can to be ready for Hoops call should it come after impressing at Hampden during the week.

The Costa Rican right back put in a great shift as his national side beat Scotland 1-0.

Gamboa will now return to Glasgow in the hope of playing some part in the rest of the season as he looks to be fit for the World Cup.

However, he’s not sitting around waiting – the defender is being proactive.

“I can only take what Celtic give me and hopefully be ready. The World Cup is also massive for me and that’s why I’m doing all I can.

“I can’t demand to play in every game as that is not my decision. That’s why I have been doing extra sessions after training.

“I have brought a personal trainer over from Spain to help me. I need to think about myself now. I have been doing a lot of extra work in the gym too.”

If Gamboa does get the nod for any of Celtic’s remaining games, you can be sure he will be fit and ready.

Costa Rica will be up against Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia in the group stage of the World Cup.
