Celtic & Rangers latest: Bhoys loan star welcomes competition; Templeton full of confidence

We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Jo Inge Berget thriving off competition

Jo Inge Berget insists that the competition for places at Celtic will get the best out of him.

The striker signed for the Bhoys this summer on loan, but could face a fight if he wants to be a regular starter following the captures of Stefan Scepovic and John Guidetti.

However, Berget is not fazed by the increased options that Ronny Deila now has to choose from and insists it will help him.

“It’s good to have that, you want many players in the squad to keep people on their toes,” he said.

“It means you have to give a bit extra to get in the team. It’s good to have competition like that and it will make Celtic stronger.”

John Guidetti speaks following Celtic move

John Guidetti says that he is honoured to have joined Celtic.

The Manchester City striker moved to Parkhead on a loan move, and is expected to go straight into the starting line-up and he says that he can’t wait to get going.

“I’m so happy to be part of this amazing club,” said the striker. “It’s a big honour and I’m going to give it my very best to live up to what the fans deserve. I can’t wait to wear the Celtic jersey.”

David Templeton happy with impact

David Templeton says that he is happy with the impact he made after coming off the bench against Queen of the South.

Rangers had been struggling until the winger’s introduction, but Templeton’s strike drew them level and the Light Blues never looked back after that – going on to win 4-2.

It was a goal and a performance which Templeton enjoyed and it admits that it has given him confidence.

“It gave me a lot of confidence to see it go in,” he said.

"I think we played a lot better football after that and we got another couple of good goals as well."

Carlos Bocanegra hails time at Rangers

Carlos Bocanegra has spoken of how much he loved his time at Rangers.

The American defender announced his retirement recently and he singled out his spell at Ibrox as one of the most special periods of his career.

“One that sticks out was my time at Rangers,” he said. “It was a fantastic experience at the top club in the country. To have the chance to play in front of 52,000 fans every game at Ibrox was incredible. That showed me how much I love soccer and how much supporters can be a part of a club and even be part of a culture.”
