ON-LOAN Manchester City defender Jason Denayer admits he is surprised to get on the scoresheet for Celtic.
Now the 19-year-old Belgian is aiming to hit double figures as Ronny Deila’s team close in on the treble.
He scored on his Hoops debut in their 6-1 win over Dundee United in August, netted in the 4-0 midweek Scottish Cup quarter-final victory and completed the threesome against the Tayside outfit with a cute effort in the 3-0 triumph on Saturday.
Denayer has now claimed six for the campaign and said: “We won three of the four games against Dundee United and I’ve scored two goals, so I’m happy.
“When I arrived here I didn’t expect to score, so I’m happy to be doing it. I’ll try to score 10, maybe more, I hope. I’ve never scored a back-heel, though. That’s my first.
“It was an important win because it was a good chance to take more points and make a difference against Aberdeen.”
Denayer is poised to return to the Etihad when his temporary deal expires at the end of the season.
However, boss Deila is hopeful that something can be done to bring the classy central defender back to Parkhead even for a six-month stint.
