Celtic debutant Wakaso reacts on Twitter to SPL debut

Celtic star thrilled to finally make SPL debut

John Guidetti will get the plaudits, but Mubarak Wakaso's eagerly awaited SPL debut should not be overlooked.

The attackers scored on his first start for the club against Red Bull Salzburg a fortnight ago in the Europa League, and followed it up with another competent display against St Mirren.

Celtic won 2-1 with Manchester City loanee John Guidetti scoring twice, and Wakaso took to Twitter after the game to praise the travelling support.

Wakaso siged on loan from Russian side Rubin Kazan in late Ausgust, but his debut had been delayed by the wait for a work permit.

He was not alone, with Southampton's Sadio Mane only making his English Premier League debut this weekend too against QPR.

The 24-year-old Ghanaian was booked in the game, but clearly hopes to retain his place for Thursday's Europa League fixture at home to Dinamo Zagreb
