Andreas Hinkel is desperate to play in Celtic's Europa League clash with Hamburg and impress German national coach Joachim Low ahead of next years World Cup. Full-back Hinkel, who has 19 caps, has found himself a bit-part player for his country since Joachim Low became manager after the 2006 tournament.
"This will be the first time since I left Germany that I will play against a German team so it's special for me," Hinkel told Celtic's matchday programme.
"And it's a good opportunity for the German people to see me because the SPL is not televised in Germany.
"And, of course, it's important to me because the German national coach will see the game so I'm looking forward to it."
