Video: Celtic-owned Teemu Pukki hits eighth goal of the season for Brondby

Celtic Park

Teemu Pukki is on loan at Brondby from Celtic, and hit his eighth goal of the season on Sunday.

Celtic-owned striker Teemu Pukki has bagged his eighth goal of the season for Brondby, the club he is on loan at for the duration of the campaign.

Pukki, 24, joined Celtic from Schalke back in August 2013, and his seven goals in 33 games under Neil Lennon in a promising first season in Scotland - but has since found first-team football hard to come by.

Now-Celtic manager Ronny Deila saw Pukki hit two goals in five games after his appointment last summer, but still allowed the Finnish international to move back to Scandinavia, joining Brondby on loan for the season.

Pukki has now scored eight goals in 24 appearances for the Danish side, with his latest goal coming on Sunday against Odense.

Pukki latched on to a through ball before slotting past the goalkeeper to put Brondby 2-0 up, and that's how it stayed for fifth placed Brondby.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Pukki in Scotland. Deila felt confident enough to go into the season with Anthony Stokes, John Guidetti, Leigh Griffiths and Stefan Scepovic as his options in attack, but there could yet be a place for Pukki in Glasgow.

Guidetti is a free agent at the end of the season and currently looks unlikely to stay at Celtic, whilst Scepovic has barely played this season and Stokes has been linked with a move to Leeds United.

That could leave Deila needing another striker, and Pukki needs to keep scoring in Denmark if he is to make an impression on Deila ahead of the summer transfer window.
