Former Celtic player Stefan Scepovic speaks ahead of his countries match against Scotland, the Serbian speaks highly of his time in Glasgow despite struggling to get into the first team.
The 30 year old striker seemed to enjoy life with the Scottish Champions despite only managing to play around 19 games and score 4 goals.
As his nation Serbia prepare to face Scotland in their Euro’s play-off tie, Scepovic gives the lowdown on his former Hoops colleagues as he speaks with the media.
MY TIME AT CELTIC WAS A WONDERFUL, UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE. ALL AROUND ME WERE GOOD PLAYERS AND THEY ARE A HUGE CLUB
“I HAD LEIGH GRIFFITHS, CALLUM MCGREGOR AND STUART ARMSTRONG AS TEAMMATES AT CELTIC AND THEY ARE ALL IN THE CURRENT SCOTLAND SQUAD.
“GRIFFITHS IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THE BALL. HE CAN FIND SPACE AND IS EXTREMELY GIFTED WITH A FEROCIOUS SHOT. HE’S NOT THAT TALL, BUT HE HAS A SPRING WHEN HE JUMPS AND HIS REFLEXES ARE EXCEPTIONAL. HE’S SCOTLAND’S MOST DANGEROUS PLAYER FOR ME.
“CALLUM MCGREGOR WAS ONLY A KID WHEN I WAS THERE, BUT I STILL REMEMBER HIM AS BEING VERY COMFORTABLE ON THE BALL AND IS GOOD AT READING A GAME.
“STUART ARMSTRONG ARRIVED FROM DUNDEE UNITED WHEN I WAS THERE. HE’S A HARD WORKER. HE GETS UP AND DOWN THE PITCH. HE IS TECHNICALLY VERY GOOD. IT’S NO SURPRISE TO ME TO SEE HIM DOING SO WELL IN THE ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE WITH SOUTHAMPTON.”
We remember the big striker as a decent player who just couldn’t seem to get to grips with Scottish Football.
He now plays in Japan and seems settled despite moving from club to club after the Scottish Champions.
However, its always good to hear former players speak so highly of our club no matter how good or bad their stay was, we wish him well.
