Celtic player Teemu Pukki speaks about his goal drought for loan club Brondby

A Celtic player currently out on loan has been reflecting on his poor recent form.

Celtic forward Teemu Pukki has been speaking about his disappointing recent form for his loan club Brondby, in comments given to the Danish side’s official website.

Pukki moved on loan along with fellow Celtic player Holmbert Fridjonsson back in September, but the Finnish forward is having a poor spell in front of goal, without a strike in his last seven league matches.

In total, Pukki has scored eight times in 25 games for Brondby, but five of those came in a fantastic run of form shortly after his switch.

The 25-year-old netted five times in just five matches but has managed only one league goal since then and only three in all competitions.

Speaking about his goal drought, the Celtic player said, “Of course it is annoying when the goals do not come.

“As a striker you like to score as much as possible. But the key is not to think about it all the time. I know that the goals will come.”

Celtic signed Pukki from German side Schalke in the summer of 2013 and he went on to score seven goals in 27 Scottish Premiership appearances.

He also netted twice for the Bhoys earlier this season, helping Ronny Deila’s men to a comfortable victory against KR Reykjavic in the Champions League qualifying stages.

But having started his loan spell so well only to falter in recent times, it remains to be seen if Pukki has a long-term future at Celtic Park.
