Joe Miller explains Nadir Ciftci is in for a harsh reality at Celtic

Former Celtic player Joe Miller has suggested Nadir Ciftci needs to buck up his ideas at Parkhead.

Former Celtic player Joe Miller has suggested to the Glasgow Evening Times that Nadir Ciftci is in for a harsh reality if he completes a move to Parkhead.

The Bhoys have agreed a deal for the Dundee United striker according to the BBC and Miller claims there are two reasons Ciftci would be forced to change and calm down if he became a player under the guidance of Ronny Deila.

“If boys step out of line they don’t last there. He’ll also have Scott Brown to keep him in line,” he told the Glasgow Evening Times.

“The quality around him will maybe bring him down a peg or two. He will be there to learn and maybe enhance his game.”

How will Scott Brown handle Ciftci?

Brown is Ronny Deila’s captain and the leader out on the pitch.

Brown is the sort of player who always demands the very best from his teammates and that will be the case moving forward into next season.

If Ciftci does anything stupid which affects the team or looks as though he may let his temper get the better of him, Brown will step in and will remind him of his responsibilities as a Celtic player.

The harsh reality

The harsh reality for Ciftci when he becomes a Celtic player is that he’s not going to be at the top of the pecking order.

He’ll have to work very hard to get himself into the team ahead of someone like Leigh Griffiths, who finished last season as the club’s top scorer.

A poor attitude won’t help and he’ll have to buckle down and work hard if he has any aspirations to lead the attack of a massive club like Celtic.
