CELTIC defender Cristian Gamboa has slammed his former West Brom boss Tony Pulis – and said he would have needed to wear high heels to get a game with his team!

The Costa Rica international, who joined the Hoops in a £1million deal in August, arrived at the Hawthorns in 2014 after being signed by Alan Irvine following an impressive World Cup.

But the Scot’s sacking and Pulis’ appointment saw Gamboa completely frozen out.

The attacking right-back said: “For the first six months at West Brom under Alan Irvine, it was good. But then Tony Pulis came in and I had no chance at all – not even on the bench.

“Pulis had no trust in me. You know what he’s like as a manager, he was never going to use me. That’s the difference.

“To play for his team, I think I needed a pair of high heels. I asked my wife if I could borrow a pair for training!

“My confidence suffered at West Brom, of course it did. It was difficult for me.”
