NICOLAS KUHN has played just over an hour for Celtic – but already the £3million recruit has experienced a rollercoaster of emotions.
The German winger, who signed from Rapid Vienna in the middle of last month, made his first appearance as a second-half substitute in the 1-0 victory over Ross County last weekend.
Kuhn must have been slightly puzzled as the victors were booed off the Parkhead pitch by a section of the support.
And the new Bhoy claimed his first goal for the Hoops at Pittodrie yesterday, but didn’t spend too much time celebrating following the 1-1 draw against Aberdeen.
NET PROFIT…Nicolas Kuhn watches his shot head for its target as Dons keeper Kelle Roos is left helpless.
The stalemate leaves the champions three points ahead of their nearest challengers who have a game in hand after their 3-0 victory over rock-bottom Livingston at Ibrox.
Reflecting on the deadlock in the north east, Kuhn said: “Of course, we wanted to win and get the three points.
“We had a couple of chances in the first-half and we didn’t defend well because they had too many chances, especially in the second-half.
“And then, of course, we wanted to get the second goal so we had to open up a bit, but we are disappointed at not getting the three points.
“I’m happy that I scored my goal, but, at the end, one point is not enough.”
Kuhn, speaking to Celtic TV, added: “Of course, I want to show myself and show the fans what I can do on the pitch.
HANDS UP IF YOU’VE JUST SCORED…Nicolas Kuhn celebrates his first Celtic strike.
“I hope I can get better with every game.
“The good thing is that we can do better soon. So we have a couple of games coming now, we have to do better and get the three points – all of the points we can get now.”
