Scott Brown has said he would like to see Teemu Pukki have a second chance at Celtic Park – he only scored nine goals during his time at the Celts but since then has shown his prolific form in front of goal down with Norwich.

As he scored 11 goals this season before lockdown was put in place – leaving Brown to admit he’d love to see Pukki in the Green and White hoops again.

The Celtic skipper, said: “I’d bring back Pukki.

“He was quiet at Celtic. He always worked hard and put defenders under pressure.

“But when he first came he didn’t look like a natural goalscorer.

“When I see him playing with Norwich, he’s obviously had that little bit more experience, he’s flying.

“For a natural goalscorer, I would take Pukki because no matter what you always need one of them.

“We’ve got Griff just now, and Odsonne who can produce that, but you can never have enough firepower.

“He was quiet but a really nice man. Every morning he used to wear the same terrible adidas trainers.

“They were about eight year old… his barnet was shocking as well!

“When he played for us he didn’t get that much game time, he didn’t get many opportunities.

“He didn’t probably score the amount of goals that we hoped he would score.

“He’s went away though and done phenomenal, fair play. He could have ended up falling down the leagues and doing whatever.

“But he’s fought, and fitness was never an issue with him anyway because he was like a Duracell Bunny, he would just keep running.

“I would definitely take Pukki.”
