Beram Kayal has told the Daily Record that an injury problem was what stopped him showing his best form towards the latter end of his spell at Celtic.

Kayal joined the Bhoys back in 2010, and he impressed in his first few seasons at Parkhead.

However, the central midfielder damaged his ankle ligaments in an Old-Firm derby match against Rangers when Lee McCulloch put in a hefty challenge on him, and he failed to be a regular starter again after that.

Kayal suffered a host of injury problems, and he was eventually sold on in 2015, when he moved to Brighton.

However, despite moving away, the central-midfielder says that he still has great memories of his time with the Bhoys.

“No matter which club I play for or have played for, I’ve given 100 per cent. I still have a lot of great memories from Celtic and many friends up in Glasgow,” Kayal said.

“Things that happened to me at Celtic were unbelievable and I will never forget them.

“The situation with the injury I sustained is something everyone knows about and it stopped me a bit.

“But there is no time to cry about that. It’s history, it is in the past, I’m over it and I’m now in a good place enjoying the football and playing well.”

Kayal ended up making 132 appearances for Celtic during his five years at Parkhead.

The Israel international has been in impressive form since moving to Brighton, and he has so far managed to stay off the treatment table for the Championship side.
