NEW Celtic signing Leo Mazis has spoken for the first time since signing his Celtic contract.
The player signed a three-year deal with the Scottish Champions after a successful trial in November of last year.
The 17-year-old could hardly believe it and spoke about how his trial with the under 17s ended up in him training with the first team.
“It’s an incredible feeling, the hard work has paid off, it’s just surreal to be honest and it all happened really quickly,” Mazis told Fairfax Media.
“Initially over there I was training with the under-17s then the under-20s and when the call came to train with the first team it was really exciting and bit scary to be honest,” Mazis said.
“It was way more than I had expected but it all went well and the boss [Rodgers] and [assistant] Kolo Toure pulled me aside and had some nice words and advice for me.
