Celtic signed Kazim-Richards from Dutch giants Feyenoord in the January transfer window. The 29-year-old striker arrived in the Scottish Premiership with a good reputation, having played for the likes of Sheffield United, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray.
“Colin Kazim-Richards barely has his feet in the door at the club but you would have to say that the initial impressions have been good,” former Celtic midfielder and manager Hay wrote in The Glasgow Evening Times.
“The signs point to the fact that he will play up alongside Leigh Griffiths in what would be a welcome move in the eyes of many.”
Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 55 points from 24 matches. Ronny Deila’s side are level on points with second-placed Aberdeen and have a game in hand.
The Glasgow giants will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Ross County at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership.
County are fourth in the league table at the moment with 33 points from 25 matches, 11 points behind third-placed Heart of Midlothian.
Celtic are favourites to win the game, and one suspects that they should pick up all three points handsomely.
