Celtic’s Zaluska wants first team football

Celtic goalkeeper Lukasz Zaluska believes he can step into the number one shirt at Parkhead.

Celtic goalkeeper Lukasz Zaluska believes he can step into the number one shirt at Parkhead.

The 29-year old Polish shot-stopper has had limited opportunity since joining from Dundee United in the summer of 2009 but feels he is in a position now where he can fill the void left by recent number ones Artur Boruc and Fraser Forster.

"After last year - my worst year ever because I played just two games - I'm pretty sure this season will be much better for me," he told the Scottish Sun.

"I'm ready to play, the gaffer knows that. I hope every game I can prove to him I can be Celtic number one.

"To be honest after my first season when Artur Boruc was the Celtic number one keeper and I played something like 17 games, Artur then went to Fiorentina and I expected to play more than I did in that first season.

"But Fraser came and played very well. He broke records for keeping clean sheets and everything.

"I spoke with the gaffer a lot of times but Fraser did well and I have had to wait for my chance.

"I hope it has come now and we will see what happens. I love this club, I want to stay here and I don't want to think about being second choice all season. I hope I play far more games."
