Celtic loanee Teemu Pukki finally ends Brondby goal drought

A player on loan from Celtic finally found the net again at the weekend.

It was a long time coming, but finally Celtic loanee Teemu Pukki has ended his goal drought for loan club Brondby.

The Finnish striker temporarily left Celtic Park in the summer, but after a fine start for his loan club – during which he scored five goals in seven games – Pukki endured a worrying drought.

Since then he had managed just one more goal in his next 15 league games, but he finally saw a change in fortune at the weekend when he opened the scoring in a 2-0 win against Silkeborg.

In many ways it came at the perfect time, with the Celtic loanee recently telling Brondby’s official website just how frustrated he was not to have scored for so long.

But having vowed to keep fighting to turn his fortune around, he has now done just that and it will be interesting to see what Pukki does in the remaining four matches of the campaign.

After all, if he can get back into a goal-scoring rhythm before heading back to Scotland, he could yet have a part to play for Celtic next season.
