Celtic winger Joao Jota has expressed his delight at grabbing his first goal for the club in Thursday night’s 3-0 victory over Raith Rovers, which secured the Hoops a place in the semi-finals of the Premier Sports cup.
As quoted by Sun Sport, the 22-year old stated it was an ‘unbelievable feeling’ to grab his first goal in Green and White, as he paid tribute to his Celtic teammates in helping him settle into life in Glasgow.
“It was an unbelievable feeling to score. I was really hoping for this to happen, and fortunately, it did for me on Thursday.
“I’m really happy. The lads have been helping me a lot, and now I’m looking forward to doing more.
“I’ve been here for two or three weeks, and the process has been amazing. They are so welcoming.
“Game by game, we are learning with each other.
“There are plenty of new players; we just need to fit in, trust the process and deliver game after game — and I think we’re doing that.”
The Benfica loanee has been thrown right into the thick of things during a busy period for the Hoops, playing the entire 90 minutes on his four appearances for the club so far.
Of course, that is likely due to Ange Postecoglou extensive list of players currently out injured. However, it might be a positive from the player himself, who will have been desperate to play football and is now well-and-truly settled into life as a Celtic player.
