Getafe's Miku quickly adjusting to Celtic life…but the gaffer's accent is difficult

Celtic new boy Miku says he has settled rapidly into life with his new club due to the help of two players in particular.

The 27-year old Venezuelan striker joined the Hoops on loan from Getafe in the summer and admits that skipper Scott Brown and fellow Latino Emilio Izaguirre have assisted him in adapting to Scottish football, especially when he can't understand manager Neil Lennon.

"I have a good relationship with every player, especially Broony. He is important because he's the captain. He teaches me the rules, what I can and can't do," Mike said.

"He is important for the young people, like Gary Hooper and Tony Watt, but I also think I am young!

"Emilio is important as he can translate the things that I don't understand. I speak too slowly so I can't understand and I lose the way, but Emilio tells me everything.

"I understand when people speak slow, but the manager speaks too fast, and then says 'Understand?' I say yes, then ask Emilio and he tells me.

"I think in a month or two months I'll understand, because it is a difficult accent."
