DIEGO Laxalt has revealed he will seek out advice from superstars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Luis Suarez to help him make a major impact at Celtic in the coming months.

Laxalt, who has joined the Glasgow club from AC Milan on a season-long loan, has an impressive curriculum vitae having played in Serie A for the past seven years.

The 27-year-old, who cost the San Siro club £12.5m two years ago, has also represented Uruguay in the World Cup finals.

However, he knos the British game will be a completely new experience and will turn to two of football’s most famous figures for tips on how to shine in Scotland.

He plays alongside Atletico Madrid striker Suarez with his national team and was in the same side as Swedish great Ibrahimovic at Milan.

“Eveything happened so fast so I didn’t get a chance to talk to them, but I know guys like Suarez and Zlatan have played here and I’ll be hoping to speak to them soon,” he said.

“I used to talk to Louis when he was at Liverpool and he always spoke very highly of British football. I’m looking forward to experiencing it for myself. My game is all about intensity so I am hoping it will be suited well for Scotland.

“They are very big personalities. They always want the ball, no matter where they are on the pitch. It’s a great experience being on the ptich with them and sharing a dressing room. I’ve learned so much from them.”

Laxalt added: "I know Celtic are famous across the world because of the trophies they won all over. I know the club has a lot of followers and it's a great atmosphere and ambience.

"I looked to see if there was another Uruguayan player here before and then I was told I was the first. I hope to leave a great image of my country during my time at Celtic.

"I will start training and get to know everyone and all the other players. I want to get good results to achieve the objectives of the team.I will give my maximum in every game I play and I want to win titles. That requires a lot of work and I will do that in every game.

"I have been playing in the last few years as a left-back and I always like to leave everything on the pitch.

"My main characteristics are my intensity and my pace. I will do everything to help my team-mates and get the results we want.”

Laxalt, who has won 24 caps for his country, feels that his experience of international football will be invaluable at Celtic.

"The World Cup was a big stage and it was a unique and good experience for me,” he said. "Each game helped me develop as a player and I will keep trying to do that.

"I will honestly give everything in every game and will help my team-mates and do it for the fans.”

Laxalt played alongside Olivier Ntcham at Genoa and feels the presence of the French midfielder will him to settle straight in.

He saw Celtic in action against Lazio in the Europa League last season – Neil Lennon’s side won both of their matches against the Rome club – and is hoping they can do well again in the competition this term.

"I played with Olivier for two years in Genoa and I was happy to learn he is here,” he said. “I can't wait to see him and play with him again. He is a great player and a great person.

"I remember the Celtic wins over Lazio because we follow the Europa League in Italy. It was big wins but we have to take each game at a time in this season's competition. It's a long way to go and an arduous road for the team to get far.

Laxalt continued: "It's a coincidence that we have been drawn in the group with AC Milan,” he said. "It's a great opportunity here and it doesn't matter who the opposition is.

"My head and heart are at Celtic now and I am looking forward to the opportunity to play. It will be a special game for me because my club is AC Milan but I will need to focus on the game.

“All I am thinking of is Celtic right. That's where all my concentration is. I want to help Celtic now. I am not at AC Milan and all my focus is on doing the best for the club.”
