Ghana’s Wakaso in line for Celtic debut today

The Ghanaian is expected to make his debut for the Scottish champions tonight in the Europa League against Austrian giants Red Bulls
Ghanaian winger Mubarak Wakaso could make his Celtic debut Thursday evening in the Europa League when they face Red Bulls Salzburg.

Wakaso is yet to make his Celtic bow having returned too late from international duty with Ghana to feature against Aberdeen over the weekend.

The left winger is in line to see his first action in the Hoops after Aleksander Tonev failed to make any real impression on his debut over the weekend.

“That's important Wakaso is expected to benefit,” manager Rony Deila told the club’s website.

“Wakaso had not even trained with the team until this week because of the break. That's why he was on the bench for all of Saturday's game.”

The 24-year-old former Espanyol kingpin joined the Scottish champions on loan from Rubin Kazan this summer and has an option to make it permanent.
