LUKASZ ZALUSKA arrived at Celtic in the summer of 2009 after the Polish keeper signed a pre-contract contract in January as his Dundee United deal ticked down.
The athletic shotstopper was seen as the ideal back-up for his friend and compatriot Artur Boruc and he had hopes of regular first-team football when the fans’ favourite quit for Fiorentina a year later.
However, Zaluska’s hopes were scuppered when Neil Lennon brought in future England international No.1 Fraser Forster on loan from Newcastle United before making the switch permanent in a £2million transfer 12 months later.
NOW YOU SEE ME…Lukasz Zaluska in one of his rare first-team outings at Celtic.
The keeper made only 42 appearances in six years at Parkhead before leaving at the end of his contract. He joined German outfit Darmstadt before returning to Poland with Wisla Krakow in July 2016.
A year later, he signed for lower league outfit Pogon Szczecin and, two seasons later, moved to Miedz Legnica.
Now 41, Zaluksa is goalkeeper coach at his former club in Krakow.
