    HATEM ABD ELHAMED is happy with the start he’s made at Celtic — but insists the best is yet to come.

    The Hoops right-back has looked pretty assured since joining from Hapoel Be’er Sheva.


    However the 28-year-old admits he’s still not up to full speed.

    Elhamed said: “I think I have started well and it was very important for me to start like this.


    “When you come to a new club the first season is very, very important.

    “I am happy I have done well in my first two games.


    My pre-season wasn’t very good, so I have been happy with my performances so far.

    “When I get 100 per cent fit, I will be better.


    In the last three months I didn’t play.

    “These have been my first two games of the season and I didn’t really have a pre-season.


    One of the reasons for that was I wanted to come to Celtic.

    “I am happy and so proud that this is my living now.”

    Elhamed is desperate to help the Hoops reach the group stages of the Champions League.

    He added: “I can’t wait for that. It is my biggest dream at this age to come to Celtic and to play in the Champions League.”

    Early days of course, but he reminded me of a faster, prime version of Lustig Yesterday, we still need another RB to properly challenge him (Someone in the mould of Gumny perhaps?) but i honestly think he'll be good enough for Slavia/AIK.

    We could only go by youtube video's but there was just a good vibe about him..

    Peak year's
    Off the back of a couple of standout season's
    First international cap
    The experience of already playing in Europe and how he was more prepared now
    You can tell how much he wants it

    Was one of those hunches you could just tell we were getting a good player in..

    I saw video's of him at both full backs. Centre half and centre mid..

    He looked good in all of them..

    I thought he's deputies as a right back til we got one in. Still could be the case but he been excellent at right back to the point I'd be happy with him as first choice..

    Stick Ajer at RB even though he isn't one with Bitton and Jullien in the middle, i do not want to hear the words Anthony Ralston.

    Motherwells the one crowd Id trust Ralston against. They play his type of football. No football.
