Daizen Maeda has confirmed that he is fit and ready to feature in Celtic’s upcoming game against Hibernian on Saturday.

Maeda sustained a knock during Celtic’s midweek game against Hearts, which caused concern among the supporters, given his impressive performances as of late. However, the player himself has now confirmed that the injury was not serious and that he has fully recovered in time for the weekend fixture.

Taking to social media, Maeda wrote in Japanese but the loose Twitter translation confirmed he’s ready to go:

‘I’m ready to fight’ was the loose translation.

With his pace, energy, and his ability to chip in with goals, Maeda has proven a lot of fans wrong. His inclusion in the starting line-up on Saturday is sure to add an extra dimension to Celtic’s attack and give them a better chance of securing all three points against Hibernian.
