Hatem Abd Elhamed is a man that’s already impressing for Celtic and he is certainly continuing to go the right way about getting us to warm to him.
He arrived in the summer window just gone, of course, and showed some really positive signs from right-back in the Champions League qualifiers we had with his powerful running from the full-back area.
He has, though, had a few fitness issues to deal with this season already and it looks as though he has played through the pain barrier already with him posting this on Instagram:
You don’t want to see players risk their long-term health and be out for too long but, at the same time, you do want players that are willing to go through the pain barrier to play for the football club.
Elhamed is clearly a strong-willed man that’s already committed to the cause and that is going to endear him to us as fans.
