Celtic new bhoy, Jonjoe Kenny gave his first interview as a Hoops player and spoke of how he wants to be involved  straight away.  Kenny signed a loan deal till the end of the season and can’t wait to pull on the famous Hoops.

Speaking to Celtic FC, Kenny said he can’t wait for the chalenges ahead, “The stature of the club and how big it is made it a decision I couldn’t turn down.

‘To come up here and play my football at a club like this is perfect for me right now.’

“I want to come here and help the club first of all, and help the lads. Obviously, it’s been a bit difficult, but I just want to come here and try my best and give my all to Celtic, get out there and play and get some games for me, to show people what I can do and show my qualities.

“First of all, I enjoy playing football. I like getting the ball, playing nice football and getting forward and putting crosses in, but on the other side of that, I feel that I am aggressive, I like making tackles and just giving my all.”

“I know what’s coming ahead of me, what challenges I’ve got and that’s why I’ve come here,” he said. “I want to challenge myself and see how far I can take myself too.

“Going to Germany was a completely different experience – a different way of life, learning a new language and basically becoming like a German person, and it was just great. It’s another string to my bow, and all these experiences will come in handy now that I’ve joined Celtic.

“There’s a lot of history in the air and a lot of top players have come and gone from here, so it was the first day and it was just good to be involved and train with the lads.

‘The lads were brilliant – people from Glasgow are similar to Scousers – so it’s been brilliant for me to come in and settle in quickly.’

“I want to be involved straight away and we’ll see what happens. I’m just made up to be here and we’ll see what happens tomorrow, but the quicker I can play, the better it’ll be for me.”
