Teemu Pukki suggests it is more difficult to score in Scotland than it was during his time playing in Germany.

The Finland international, who joined Celtic from Schalke in the summer, admits he has found the going tough in Scotland but insists he is slowly adjusting to the game and will soon begin scoring consistently.

“In the last couple of matches my form has been better,” he told the Daily Record.

“The only thing that has been missing is goals. But they will come. I’m confident I can go on a scoring run.

“The Scottish game is not easy – far from it. You don’t have so much time on the ball. There are aggressive defenders but it is good.

“Every opponent likes to mark closely so it is not so easy to score. In Germany there was more space to run into other areas of the pitch.”
