Malmo star Jo Inge Berget returns to face former club Celtic this evening.

Malmo ace Jo Inge Berget has told Sky Sports that he is looking forward to facing Celtic after a failed loan spell with the Bhoys last season.

Berget, 24, had struggled to make an impact with Cardiff City under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, so moved on to Celtic last summer to reunite with his former Stromsgodset manager Ronny Deila.

However, Berget once again struggled, scoring just two goals in eight games for the Bhoys before having his loan deal terminated back in January.

The Norwegian international has now returned to Scandinavia, joining Swedish side Malmo - who now face Celtic in the Champions League tonight, giving Berget another reunion with Deila.

Berget is likely to play a key part for Malmo as they look to spring a shock at Celtic Park this evening, with a place in the Champions League group stage up for grabs.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Berget said that he is looking forward to the game - and whilst his spell with Celtic started well, the lack of playing time led to this exit.

"It is good to be back and I'm looking forward to the game tomorrow. I think it will be a good game," said Berget. "Regarding the five or six months here, I enjoyed the first bit of it. It started all right but after a while it lacked in game time. I didn't get to play much after that and so it ended how it ended," he added.

Now, Berget will be desperate to score against his former club Celtic this evening, with Malmo expected to lose in Glasgow - and whilst Bhoys fans didn't get to see the best of Berget, his form with Malmo (nine goals in 25 games) suggests that he should be a marked man this evening.
