CELTIC’S new striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo met the media today after being introduced to the Celtic support at half-time in last night’s comfortable 4-0 win over St Mirren at an ice-cold Celtic Park.

“I found the experience of being out on the pitch very moving and it made me really happy because it’s very important to me,” Bayo said.

“And the Celtic fans played a big role in me deciding to sign for the club.

“In Slovakia, I’m well-known for really enjoying celebrating with the fans when I score, and knowing what I know of the Celtic fans, I’m really looking forward to this happening here and having these sort of celebrations with the fans.”

Bayo also got the chance to watch his new team-mates in action and will have noted that both of the other arrivals in this window, Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah are both of the mark with two goals each since the weekend.

And the Ivory Coast striker reckons that he could end up being Celtic’s answer to Didier Drogba who he described as being like a ‘big brother’ to him.

That would certainly do for The Celtic support!

“Didier Drogba is like a big brother to me,” Bayo said.

“Of course I hope to have a career like he had but let’s see what happens.

“When Didier was much younger, this is when you can compare us.

“He had speed, which is one of my qualities and he was also very good with his head, which is another of my qualities.

“Yes, in a way I am inspired by him and play in a similar style to Drogba.”
