Ex-Ajax winger Boerrigter thrilled to break Celtic duck

Derk Boerrigter was pleased to open his Celtic goalscoring account on the weekend.

The Dutch winger, who joined from Ajax in the summer, scored for the first time in Hoops colours in their 3-1 win over Aberdeen and is now looking to kick on after overcoming an ankle injury.

"I am very delighted now and can't wait to get more goals," he said. "But my first priority is to get fit again, to be at the level that I used to play and hopefully I can get more minutes.

"I am not entirely over my ankle injury but we are working hard to get there.

"It has been a long time. Before I came here I had the injury and I got a lot of kicks on it here.

"I got time off to recover and that helped and I am feeling better now."
