ALBIAN AJETI says he is finally getting closer to full fitness after notching his fourth goal in five league appearances in Celtic’s win over Livingston.

The striker – a £4.5m signing from West Ham this summer -  was chosen to lead the line for Celtic with Odsonne Edouard being rested, and managed almost 80 minutes before being replaced by Patryk Klimala.

He believes that he is now becoming more attuned to the pace with which his teammates play the game, and that more goals are now sure to follow as a result.

"I feel good and close to 100 percent now,” Ajeti said. “I've still got work to do but I was happy to start today and the points were the most important thing.

"I expect to score goals. But my first aim in every game is to try and help the team win. If I can score to help them, even better.

"If I play well or we win, the confidence is always high. I've never had a problem with my own confidence.

"Playing with pace is a good way to play football, especially for the strikers. It gives us the chance to create chances and score goals.

"I was pleased with my game today but we can still improve. We're trying to get better.

"Every striker in this squad can score goals. Sometimes it's me, or it's Odsonne (Edouard) or (Patryk) Klimala - we can all score.

"For Odsonne and myself, it's just important that the team is first. We just want to win, it doesn't matter who scores the goals.

"I didn't expect a lot when I signed here. I just wanted to get back fit but I felt confidence from my team-mates and the gaffer.

"From the beginning I've felt very comfortable. When you feel happy and good, the games and goals will come automatically."

Ajeti was satisfied that Celtic moved to the top of the Premiership standings by virtue of goals scored, but with Rangers able to leapfrog them once more with a win over Hibernian this afternoon, he wasn’t getting too carried away.

"The season is still in the beginning, there's still a long way to go,” he said.

"But of course, for us it's good to be top of the table with Rangers. 

"We'll take it game by game, we took a great step today and I'm happy that we're top.”
