    Can see him getting double figures if we use him like we did today he's at his best running in behind

    Like everyone else, I like him a lot and really want him to do well. Looks like he'll * at chances but he's young and desperate to impress, so you'd hope he'll calm down once he feels more settled.

    A great option off the bench because he'll pull into the channels, run in behind and close people down which is the last thing a tiring defence wants to see.

    That's 3 strikers up and running and scoring goals, if we can get Griffiths back to full fitness that's a lot of goal-scoring potential we have there. Not to mention the likes of Christie, Elyounooussi, Forrest, Mtcham and McGregor all chipping in. Plus the threat of Duffy & Julien from set pieces. And if we can get Rogic and Johnston back fit...

    Play to these guys strengths and they could all be 20 goal strikers.

    Tricky thing for Klimala though is he isn't going to be able to run at defenders into space as generally teams against us will sit deep and try to choke games.

    Least Ajeti and Eddie has that knack of finding their own space in crowded games.

    He was fantastic when he came on today. The open game suited him down to the ground today. His pace is frightening plus his bulking up will help him a lot as well going forward. He will be absolutely lethal up against tired legs but he has also shown enough to suggest he will play a big part in starting games this season when required.

    Was unlucky with the first chance but took the second well. Love how he works tirelessly and doesn’t dwell on it when he misses. Always willing to get back in there for the next chance which is a great trait to have in a striker.

    Still raging that Lenny didn’t start him against Ferencvaros.

    It's definitely a ploy we're deliberately using. Getting his pace and running in behind off the bench when team's are knackered..

    Ross County were done when he came on and they couldn't pick him up at all..

    He'll miss chances 100% but I'm confident he'll score plenty and create space like Motherwell at home for other's as well..

    I really like him. He knows how to play the position, it’s just sometimes his technique isn’t there when finishing.

    Glad the “he isn’t a Celtic striker”, “no good enough” brigade are quiet.

    Didn't see the game today but delighted for him to get another goal. Just seems to be one of these players that through his work rate, attitude whatever that everybody is willing that little bit extra for him to do well

    Played well when he came on. Really thought it was going to be his luck after he missed the chance that Edoaurd put on a plate for him but glad he finished off arguably the more difficult chance. Already a couple of goals for the season in the league, can see him getting double figures easily if we continue to use him when teams seem to tire.

    Delighted that after his first was blocked on the line, his head didn't go down and worked hard enough to get that second opportunity.

    I love the desire and attitude. It makes me want him to succeed big time.

    Lennon must use him to his strengths. At the moment, it's definitely against tired legs. Ajeti and Edouard are hard to drop at the mo but that's not to say they'll need a rest now and then and he'll get his opportunity. I just hope Lennon doesn't wait until the 85th minute for Klimala to get some game time.

    He always has this stressed worried look on his face. As someone said desperate to please. Ajeti looks happy, more accomplished and much more confident. I hope that he gets a few more goals to get his confidence up.

    Can’t argue with the boys desire to succeed, with his attitude I’m sure he will do just that.

    He seems to be one of those strikers that when he has less time to think about a chance he’ll score it but with too much time like the blocked shot and against Motherwell he’s not got the composure yet.

    That will come with experience though, we’ve got 4 strikers with deadly goal scoring instinct, we’re going to score some amount of goals this season.

    As I've said before his movement encourages me a lot and will see him get goals.

    Needs to work on his finishing and composure. It will come.

    Guy will come on leaps and bounds with 15/20 mins a game .. impresses me more everytime is see him. He's raw and needs polishing (pun intended) but once he adds a bit of composure he will clean up
