I hope Bitton scores the winner against the huns this season just to see your reaction
You’re a bad man, I’d probably want that mob to equalise.
What a sensible thread.
I was impressed with him tonight and I'm looking forward to watching him this season.
And he wasn't in the IDF.
Whoever is the Israeli national team boss must be a clown how this guy has one cap to his name I don't know

Very promising signs already from him, pacey as *, can defend and attack, comfortable on the ball under pressure and can actually cross a ball! Just get someone in as back up/competition for him and we’re sorted at right back.
Been really impressed with this lad so far Wasnt sure at 1st with him being a CB but he looks decent going forward and very comfortable at the back.
We cant help compare our two new full backs and its like night and day...
Biggest surprise signing this guy. Hes gonna end up player of the year. Looks a beast, fast and calm.
Has pace and presence, looks like a very decent player.
Plus he looks like a bond villan.
What's not to like.
Looks a bargain
Didn’t think he’d be as comfortable at right as he has been, decent signing by the looks of things so far
Thought he defended really well against Cluj. Personally felt far more comfortable watching that game with him in the side.
Wish we’d signed this geezer 3 year ago!
Looks like a very good player to game, have far more faith in him than Bolingoli.
Brilliant last night best player for us along with Brown.
Looks like an excellent addition. Early days but signs are good.
HATEM Abd Elhamed was delighted to shake off the dead leg, which had seen him forced off early in the second half of Saturday’s game against St Johnstone, and take his place in the starting XI for the European tie against CFR Cluj in Romania.
The Israeli internationalist had impressed on his Celtic debut at Paradise, and he followed that up with another strong performance to help Neil Lennon’s side record a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League third qualifying round tie.
Now, the 28-year-old is hoping to help his new team-mates complete the job against Cluj on Tuesday night at a packed Paradise and take a step closer to the group stages of the competition.
Speaking to Celtic TV after the game in Romania, Elhamed said: “It’s a good result for us and now we need to be ready for the second leg next week. It’s a big fight but at Celtic Park, our fans will support us very well and I believe we can win that game and go through to the play-off.
“Before last Saturday, my last game had been three months ago. I did my best and tried to give 100 per cent, as I do in every game. I’m very happy to start well with Celtic, which is very important for me, and I’m hoping that in the matches to come, I’ll get better and better to make sure I’m 100 per cent fit.”
The defender was delighted to make his debut for Celtic on Flag Day at Paradise, as the Hoops launched their bid for nine-in-a-row with a 7-0 victory over St Johnstone. And he’s looking forward to his first taste of European football at Celtic Park on Tuesday.
“It was a fantastic atmosphere, and it’s something I dreamt about,” he said. “I said before that this is a dream come true, and I enjoyed the experience on Saturday. Now I can’t wait to play at Celtic Park in the Champions League.
“It was good for me to start and to do well. I came here to be an important player, and try to be one of the best and that’s what I’m going to try to do every week and give everything in every game.”
Here he's been the surprise package hasn't he? Well for me anyway. Absolutely delighted to say that I've been proved wrong so far. Great replacement at right back. Big man seems to live it too. If we can do the same on the left I will be absolutely delighted.
Wow, really impressed with this guy! I loved Lustig, but having a pacey RB is such an refreshment! He looks very good, probably the best signing we've made this summer.
