JEREMY TOLJAN is excited by the prospect of playing in the Glasgow derby this Sunday with the Dortmund star admitting that was a fixture that excited him when he came to Celtic.
The bhoys welcome their Glasgow rivals to Celtic Park this weekend in a game which could see Celtic stretch their lead at the top to a whopping 13 points.
Toljan has had a rocky start to his Celtic career and the management upheaval would have affected him just like the rest of the team. As Celtic head into the home straight and chase down the league title and Scottish Cup, Toljan is hoping he can play his part and is desperate to start in front of 60,000 Celtic fans this Sunday.
“The gap at the top certainly helps. You can go into the game very comfortable.” Toljan told the Celtic View.
“Even though we don’t need to win, we want to win and we want to win convincingly, that’s for sure!
“Our league lead allows us to go in with a little more comfort and allows us to play our game, especially at home.
“Before I came, I was very aware of the Celtic versus Rangers fixture.
“This game is talked about and discussed and analysed all over the world.
“Everyone knows it’s one of the biggest derbies in club football, and it’s a highlight for me to be part of.
“I really can’t wait to feel the atmosphere, especially at home, that’ll be great! Hopefully, we can win this game, no matter if I start or not.”
Neil Lennon will have to decide if Jeremy will start the match or if it will be veteran Mikael Lustig who gets the nod.
