New Bhoy: I'll join in with the chants at Parkhead on Thursday

Celtic

Celtic striker John Guidetti says that he will be joining the fans in chanting for his teammates on Thursday night in the Europa League.

John Guidetti says that he plans to join in the fans' chants at Parkhead as he watches his side in the Europa League. 

Celtic take on Dinamo Zagreb in the Europe's secondary competition tomorrow night, but Guidetti is unavailable to play in the match due to registration rulings and he has urged his teammates to get the three points without him.

Although the Swede cannot play in the tie he will be doing everything he can to help the Bhoys over the line, too, as he plans on learning some of the chants the supporters sing to cheer on his team. 

"I'm going to watch from the stands, which is even worse because you get more nervous," he said to the Scottish Evening Times. 

"Of course it's frustrating. This was the game I would love to play in but this is life and I have 100 per cent belief in the boys that they're going to do well.

"Hopefully with the fantastic support that I've heard about on European nights we can win.

"Hopefully I can learn a few songs and sing along as well."

Guidetti has made a blistering start to his Celtic career, scoring three times already.

The striker looks one of the most talented players to have represented the club in recent times and already the fans seem to have been won over by his ability.

The number nine has thrived with the responsibility given to him since he arrived from Manchester City on loan and he will be aiming to continue to impress when he returns to the field.

That will be in the Scottish Premiership this weekend, when the Bhoys take on Hamilton as they look to continue to close the gap on the current league leaders Dundee United.
