Livingston goalkeeper Max Stryjek claims he “would love” to play at Celtic Park on a regular basis in the future.
The 25-year-old saved Giorgos Giakoumakis’s last-minute penalty in the 0-0 draw at the weekend and the shot-stopper said he was drinking in the atmosphere at Parkhead:
“I have been here with a friend to watch them against Bayer Leverkusen this season and the atmosphere was unbelievable. It was so loud and I was thinking: ‘I would love to play here’… We play football for days like these. How can you not enjoy playing in a beautiful stadium like this with 60,000 people watching you play. What can be better for a footballer?”
It seems likely that Stryjek would be open to a move to Celtic, but he will have to prove himself in the Scottish Premiership first before even being considered by the Old Firm club.
The former Polish Under 19 international made the switch from English non-league outfit Eastleigh in July last year, and he only became first choice keeper just over twelve months ago.
With Joe Hart having impressed since his summer arrival from Tottenham, manager Ange Postecoglou won’t be looking for a new number one anytime soon but it is certainly good to hear opposing players expressing their admiration for the club and its fans.
