Celtic winger Luis Palma has been arguably the club’s foremost signing over the past few windows. The Honduran internationalist has quickly become a favourite among the fans in Glasgow’s east end.

His goal tally for the club currently lies at five, and Palma believes he has taken his game to another level since joining Celtic. He said (Glasgow Times): “From the first game against Feyenoord I feel that I’ve learned a lot. And from what the gaffer has told me I also feel that I’ve improved a lot too. Hopefully there is still more to come from me.”

In the Champions League, Palma scored a crucial goal against Atletico Madrid but a few weeks before that, he was agonisingly denied by VAR versus Lazio. Points have been hard to come by for the Celts in Europe’s premier club competition this campaign.

When asked if he agrees with his manager’s comments about adding more ‘quality’ to the side, Palma said: “It’s not difficult to hear that because the manager is right. We have to listen to him, we have to improve and we have to learn from him.”

It seems as though Palma has full faith in his boss. Brendan Rodgers has a proven track record of taking players’ games up a level, and it seems he has aided the 23-year-old in doing so already.
