New haircut, new physique and now a Celtic goalscorer! Patryk Klimala came on in the second half for Celtic against Nice and got a gift from the French side to grab his first Celtic goal.
The Hoops scored early on but it was ruled out by VAR although the replay shows the goal should have stood.
Nice then took the lead before the end of the first half.
After wholesale changes, Klimala got onto the field and managed to exert pressure which paid off when a mistake let the striker grab the equaliser.
Celtic are level! 🍀
A howler from the Nice keeper, but credit to Patryk Klimala for applying the pressure and the finish 👏 pic.twitter.com/Z2N5dUAQBW

Celtic are set to go into a major stretch of games starting August from SPFL ties to Champions League qualifiers. If this goal can give the striker confidence to kick on and get among the goals on a regular basis then it will only benefit the team.
Klimala said he had to change the way he trained and bulk up after training against the likes of Jullien and Ajer in training.
