Ahead of me waiting for a few months, but I come to a team confident and prepared.

This step is important for the Carpathians, that’s why I’m needed there as never before, to help the team. But I will also support Celtic and I hope that he will succeed by the end of the season.

In seltice I will feel at home because of the Carpathians, too, the green and white colors and they will always be in my heart.

I hope that my transition will also help more likely to play for the national team. Of course, everything depends on the coach, but I really hope that I play more for Ukraine.

Celtic is a club with tremendous history and I want to be a part of this story and continue to write.

I have received many messages from the Ukrainian community in Glasgow and was surprised that they found me and contacted. They’re glad I came. I was very pleased. I understand that for them it is important that the Ukrainian will play in Glasgow for Celtic. I will try to create a good opinion of himself, and as a Ukrainian, and as a football player,” said the Swede.
