TURIN THE MONPSY; CHAMPIONS LEAGUE RIVALS GET READY TO GO SHOPPING Rami's the Man to Help Celtic Cash in against Juve Says Israel Boss Guttman


Byline: EUAN McLEAN sport@dailyrecord.co.uk

ISRAEL boss Eli Guttman last night backed Rami Gershon to go from outcast to Champions League stand-out when he signs for Celtic.

The defender is on the brink of escaping his Standard Liege hell, where he has plummeted out of the picture since last summer, with a dream move to the Hoops.

And his international manager reckons Gershon is the perfect recruit to galvanise Neil Lennon's backline for the looming Champions League last-16 showdown against Juventus.

The 24-year-old's versatility - he is equally effective at left-back and centre-half - makes him a vital addition as he negotiates a loan move to Parkhead with an option for the club to buy him for around PS800,000 at the end of the season.

It's a knockdown price but Guttman insists the player can be worth his weight in gold by shutting out the Serie A superstars to help Celts plunder more Euro riches.

He said: "Rami is a good soldier. What the manager asks he will do.

"I have no doubt he has the quality to succeed with Celtic and he will do well if he gets the opportunity to play Juventus in the Champions League.

"He is very professional with a good character and the mentality to perform at the top level. I have seen that clearly in his performances for me in the national team.

"He's a fighter with a very good left foot and his strength in the air is a REALasset.

RESURRECT "That, I believe, will make him well suited to Scottish football which demands a strong physical presence.

"So I expect he will fit in well on the pitch but I also think he will be popular in the dressing room. He is a very humble person who gives everything and will always put the team first."

Gershon's arrival in Glasgow - where he'll team up with international colleague Beram Kayal - yesterday afternoon shows Celtic are eager to do their business quickly in this transfer window to ensure they are as well prepared as possible for the Juve clash.

With the two-week SPL winter break just beginning Gershon will have time to settle into his new surroundings - and he'll need it because it looks like he'll have to hit the ground running when the action resumes against Hearts on January 19.

Hoops boss Neil Lennon is staring at a central-defensive headache with Nigeria defender Efe Ambrose heading off to the African Cup of Nations and Kelvin Wilson's two-game ban confirmed after an SFA fast-track tribunal yesterday rejected his appeal.

That should offer Gershon a chance to establish himself in the team before Juventus come calling on February 12.

And Guttman is convinced Gershon's move to Celtic can help both him and Kayal resurrect their international careers.

Although the Israel manager rates the 24-year-old a top-class talent he's reluctantly had to drop him since falling out of the Liege. Now he believes p picture at es Celtic can be the perfect springboard for Gershon to relaunch his career and show the quality that has earned him fect hon er y 10 caps.

And the delighted boss also reckons his presence at Parkhead will have a knock-on benefit for fellow Celt Kayal Guttman promised r as to head to Glasgow to watch both players in action. …
