The new Celtic Football Club signing says he wants to bring his scoring form from the Slovak Super League into the Scottish Premier League.

New Celtic footballer Vakoun Issouf Bayo has spoken for the first time since signing for the Scottish Premier League champions.

He’s joining the team after a successful season with Dunajska Streda in the Slovak Super League.

Before that, he played in his native Ivory Coast with Etoile du Sahel.

But now he’s focused on his new club, where he says he cannot wait to start winning trophies.

“I’m feeling good, and I’m happy to be here at Celtic,” said Bayo to the official Celtic website.

“Kolo called me beforehand and explained that Celtic were interested in me. I said was very interested in working with the club, with the manager, and with Kolo.”

Johnston: ‘Brilliant’ end to Celtic’s season

The Celtic attacker scored both goals to give his team a 2-1 win over Hearts and win the Scottish Cup.

“Celtic is a great football club, and I’m very happy to now be a part of it. I also know Eboue Kouassi from the Ivory Coast national team at Under-21 level,” he added.

“I know him well, and I also spoke to him beforehand. Of course, everyone in football knows the scale of Celtic but he told me what Celtic is all about and what a huge club I am joining.”

“It’s my aim to transfer my form in the Slovak Super League to Celtic. I like to score and like to celebrate with the fans,” he commented.

“I understand that Celtic fans are really good, that they make such a great noise at matches and support the team brilliantly, and that’s the sort of atmosphere I like.”

“I know I am joining a massive club and I come here to help the club,” he added.

“I can’t wait to join up with my new team-mates, so many great players are already here at the club. It’s my aim to score as many goals as I can, and help the team and the club and the fans win trophies.”
