CELTIC reject Jo Inge Berget reckons if would be “fun” if Malmo are drawn against the Hoops tomorrow.
The Norwegian misfit, who was returned to Cardiff City after an unconvincing six-month loan spell last season, joined the Swedes after being released by the Championship side.
Berget made his debut for his fellow-countryman Ronny Deila in the nightmare 4-1 Euro qualifying defeat against Legia Warsaw. He scored two goals in Celtic’s 6-1 league win over Dundee United in August, but that was the only highlight of his stay in Scotland.
The 24-year-old left-winger helped his new side overcome Salzburg on a 3-2 aggregate and they will be unseeded in the Champions League play-off ballot in Nyon.
Berget relishes the thought of a dramatic return to Glasgow and admitted: “It would be fun to play against Celtic because I have been there.
“I know several guys there and it could be exciting to play Celtic, but there are many good teams that we could be drawn against.”
Malmo had already beaten Lithuanian outfit Zalgiris Vilnius on a 1-0 overall score before knocking out the Austrians of Salzburg.
They are currently sixth in the league, seven points behind leaders IFK Gothenburg.
Malmo are managed by 61-year-old Norwegian Age Hareide who was in charge of Helsingborgs when they lost to Neil Lennon’s side on a 4-0 aggregate in the 2012 Champions League play-off.
