Celtic's Oliver Burke

Burke admits he’s ‘loving’ life at Celtic

Oliver Burke admits he is ‘loving’ life at Celtic after earning his first Scotland call-up in two years.

The 21-year-old arrived at Celtic Park on-loan from West Brom in January and has shone in Glasgow, scoring four league goals in nine appearances, and has been named in Alex McLeish’s Scotland squad for the opening Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kazakhstan and San Marino.

Burke credits the move with reigniting his international career following frustrating periods at Red Bull Leipzig and West Brom, and admits he is ‘loving every minute’ at the Scottish champions.

“I’m loving every minute of my football, especially here at Celtic,” Burke told celticfc.net.

“It’s such big club and my team-mates have been great as well as well as the staff and everybody else. I’m very happy here and hopefully it continues to the end of the season.

“It’s good to have the flexibility on positions, especially if something happens in the game. I’ve been enjoying my position here playing as a striker and I think it’s worked out.

“I’m enjoying myself there but I’m happy to play anywhere really. I do enjoy it on the wing, but I haven’t played there in a while. It’s good to learn different positions and have a feel for it because I think that’s really important as a player.

“I’m in a much better frame of mind. Good things are coming while I’m on the pitch and playing with my team-mates. It’s amazing to be part of so we can just continue doing what we’re doing and concentrate on working hard. The games will come thick and fast so we have to be ready.”
