    Still a good player to have around in my opinion. He was excellent for about 18 months.

    He isn't a bad player..

    Has good quality. Can pick a pass especially but he doesn't suit the way we play..

    Too 1 paced or slow as I like to call it. Wants too much time on the ball. Is easily ran off. Seems to have regressed from a few year ago. On too big a wage to sit on the bench..

    We should be looking for better and getting a fee and a fairly large wage off the bill in January, in a line of player's who should be shown the door for fund's for a spend up..

    Which is part of the problem. He seems to be happy to sit on a good wage, on the bench..

    We have far too many like that on the book's just now..

    Yup I agree with the 'slow' thing - he would fit in well in La Liga. Still think he's a good option to have, especially given how desperate we could end up in the centre half department in the coming months.

    Interesting to see him on the bench last night for Israel. Hopefully close to a return.

    Was a tidy player in cm, too casual sometimes doesn't play at a high intensity. At cb though he was beyond garbage

    NIR Bitton thanked his team-mates and the Celtic staff for helping him through one of the most difficult periods of his career as he prepares to mark his return to action after nearly a year on the sidelines.

    The Hoops midfielder has been out of action since February after picking up a knee injury which required surgery, but he is now at the end of his long road back to recovery and cannot wait to start playing again.

    In an exclusive interview with Celtic TV, the 27-year-old midfielder reflected on what has been a difficult year and said he could not have come through it without the help and support of everyone at the club and his family.

    “When you’re out for nine or 10 months you start questioning whether you’ll be back in your form again," Bitton said. "You start thinking the worst and that’s why you need to surround yourself with the people who you trust will support you, whatever it takes.

    “To be honest, last year, the first two or three months after surgery were really tough for me. I couldn’t really walk or drive at that point, but thankfully I had a good neighbour in Patrick Roberts, so he was like a second wife to me! He helped me a lot and I appreciated that.

    “The manager, medical staff, the physios and everyone around me have been very supportive. They would have a chat with me sometimes and try to give me a little bit of a lift. When I look back on it, I can see that it was absolutely helping me.”

    Now that he is nearing the end of his recovery, Bitton said his return to action will be a special moment for him.

    “I can’t even describe how much I’m looking forward to getting back to playing,” he said. “The first game where I’m in the squad I might be crying in my room. It’s been a tough time for me.

    “We have a big chance this year to great an even greater history than we’ve created over the last two years. We just need to stay focused for the second half of the season and keep going the same way as we have been over the last two years.”
