Annan told Starr Sports that though he has no regrets for leaving Germany, his immediate target is to look elsewhere to revive his dwindling career.

“I would not say I regret, but what I will say is I took the opportunity to go there and see how things will turn out, but afterwards it didn't work out very well for me I wasn’t successful.

“I changed and went back again but now I can see it’s not helping me so I have to change and see where it’s gonna help me,” Annan said.

Henderson faces a huge task to break into a Celtic midfield that boasts the likes of Scott Brown, Nir Bitton, Charlie Mulgrew, Stuart Armstrong and Johansen.

But the Scotland Under-21 international is up for the fight and hopes to be given the chance to shine in tomorrow night’s friendly against Real Sociedad.

He said: “The training facilities in Norway were brand new and the coaches, the boys, were all top professionals.

“Maybe growing up being a Scottish boy and supporting Celtic, it was just a wee bit of realisation that I’m coming back and need to work even harder to try to get in the team.

“The manager and the coaches have been really positive with me since I’ve been back and that gives me confidence that I’ll get an opportunity.”

"Obviously I missed my friends and family, that was a big part of it as well. It was the first time I had lived by myself and having to cook and clean so you grow up.

"That was one of the main things for me to go out there and become a better person, get more life experience as well as the football side. I think that has really helped me."

"Rosenborg wanted to keep me a bit longer but the gaffer said he wanted me to come back here, which was a great confidence booster," he said.

"He asked me if I wanted to stay out there and if I was enjoying it.

"But then he said he wanted me back in for pre-season and I was delighted when I heard that."

''The pre-season has been going on so well, I am just looking forward for the season to start,'' said John Chibuike to news24.

''My target is to help Gaziantepspor to stay in the league for next season because it is not going to be so easy. In Turkey now they have a lot of good players in the Super Lig.''

Deila refused to rule out letting 19-year-old midfielder Liam Henderson go out on loan again. Henderson spent several months at Rosenborg this year and has been linked with a temporary move to Dundee United.

"We will see what kind of options we have," Deila said. "Things change very quickly in football. We just have to be good at planning and be aware of everything.

"First of all, I want him to play for Celtic. This is not about Liam, this is about the whole squad. We will see what is best for certain individuals and also the team."

Lustig on Hareide:

“I like him as a personality. You can see it in Mourinho as well. Sometimes he wants to speak to his players through what he says in the media. He wants to make sure his players are confident.

“That is part of the game. He wants to show respect to Celtic but his aim is also to show his players they should not be afraid and that they should go out there with confidence.

“Some coaches and managers are like that. They want to make sure their players have confidence and say that the team they are going to face are not that good etc. It’s part of the game and it’s his way to be a manager."

More Lustig:

"I’m still being careful in terms of my fitness. I played two games in midweek and the weekend when I played against Partick Thistle after the Qarabag match. But then I took a week’s break.

"Hopefully, it is getting better and better. Maybe in a couple of months, I should be able to play all the games.

"There is still some pain after the games because my foot is still swollen. If you get a knock on it or something then it can swell up even more. I have to be careful, but so far so good."

Viewed as one of the most promising prospects in Scottish football, Henderson’s decision to go out on loan [to Hibernians] was eased further by the knowledge that his long-term future at Celtic is secure after he was handed a new three-year contract last week.

“It’s good for my confidence that they rate me that highly and want to keep me,” he said.

“Ronny Deila told me to go out and get the year’s experience and be ready to go back and play for them at the end of it. My full focus this year is on 
doing well for Hibs though.”

Henderson is having a good time in Edinburgh. He has scored three times in 15 appearances as Hibs look to try and keep the pace with Celtic's bitter rivals Rangers in the promotion race.

The club are unbeaten in their last 13 games, since a 1-0 defeat to Rangers in August.

Henderson will hope to fire Hibs above Rangers in the league table and secure promotion back to the top-flight for the club before making an impact at Celtic next season.

Newly-crowned Costa Rican champion Saprissa announced Monday that it has signed Costa Rica international Roy Miller to a three-year deal.

(...)

On December 2, the Red Bulls announced that they would not exercise the option on Miller’s contract for the 2016 season. Although eligible to remain in MLS through the Re-entry Draft process, the former Cartagines standout was not selected by any team, allowing him to become free agent.

There is no chance of Mikael Lustig being blasé about the Scottish Cup assignment that awaits the Celtic side he will skipper away to third-tier opponents Stranraer tomorrow afternoon. Not because of the folly of that. More the Follo.

At previous club Rosenborg – the king-pins of the Norwegian game – Lustig and his team-mates thought they were on course for a double in 2010 when pitted against Follo in the semi-final of their national cup. In existence for only a decade and mostly part-time, in September that year they were struggling to avoid dropping down to the third tier. Rosenborg, in contrast, were then unbeaten in the top flight they were within weeks of clinching.

What happened when the pair met in Ski Stadium, the home of Follo, was deemed the biggest cup shock in Norwegian football history. The 3-2 scoreline – which paved the way for Ronny Deila’s Stromsgodset to beat the unfancied Follo in the final – was an outcome to knock Celtic’s recent Scottish Cup calamities against Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Clyde and Ross County into a cocked hat.

“But the biggest one was when I played for Rosenborg in the Norwegian Cup semi final. We faced a team called Follo, who were bottom of the second division and we lost. It was a massive opportunity to win the double and we didn’t do it.

“We got off to a good start, scoring the first goal and we probably thought the game was over. But they scored a wonder goal in the last minute to take it to extra time and then we lost in extra time.

“The fans weren’t happy. We had one game to get to a final and Rosenborg had not won the double for many years, so that was a real big opportunity. It was tough.”

Hibs take on title rivals Falkirk today and Henderson is not surprised by the impact their boss Peter Houston is making.

He said: “Peter was a scout at Celtic when I was there. He’s a good guy who knows what he’s doing.

“You can see it with the way Falkirk are playing and they are a good young side.”

Henderson reckons he has been lucky with his loan spells after winning a league winner’s medal in a stint with Rosenborg in Norway earlier this year.

He added: “I’ve been at Celtic at the top of the league and it was the same at Rosenborg. Here we’re winning again.

“The Championship is the most exciting league in Scotland.

“If I was a neutral I would be checking on the Championship scores, it’s bringing a bit of excitement. It’s a title race and it’s good for Scottish football.”

Liam Henderson will plead with Ronny Deila to allow him to play in the League Cup final if Hibs and Celtic both reach the Hampden showpiece.

Henderson turned in a man of the match display as the capital club saw off St Mirren 3-1 on Saturday – and immediately turned his attention to firing the Hibees in to the first major final of the season.

Hibs face St Johnstone on Saturday at Tynecastle in one semi-final, before the Scottish champions face Ross County at the national stadium on Sunday.

(...)

“If Celtic and ourselves made the final I don’t think I’m allowed to play – but that won’t stop me asking!

“No matter what the situation is with me, I’ll be giving my all to try and get us into the final – I’m a Hibs player and my only concentration is this club.

“I am loving my time here and the manager has been brilliant for me. I’ve not even thought that far ahead because we have to take care of St Johnstone in the semi-final first.”

Read more: Loan star Liam Henderson desperate to feature in League Cup final – even if Hibs get through to face Celtic

Henderson does not always start every game – manager Alan Stubbs acknowledged a need to use the teenager wisely – but when he plays he tends to make an impact. On the fringes of the Celtic team last season, he gained further match experience during a spell in Norway with Rosenborg – picking up a league medal – and now again under Stubbs’ tutelage. It is a loan move that could yet deliver further silverware, with Hibs just two points behind Championship leaders Rangers who play their game in hand tonight, and still involved in both cup competitions.

“Going out on loan has brought my game on leaps and bounds to be honest,” said the midfielder. “I’m getting toughened up a bit which is good for me. Playing week in week out in the men’s game is what I need at this age. I’m just wanting to repay the faith that the manager and the club have shown in me since I came here. We have an exciting few weeks ahead with some big games coming up, but the manager keeps reminding us that we have to take one game at a time. He doesn’t let us look too far ahead of ourselves, so we will put our focus on St Johnstone.”

We can exclusively reveal that Rossoneri scouts have been to watch Markus Henriksen, and are now so blown away that they've informed VP Adriano Galliani of his great box-to-box play, and his scoring instinct.

The -year-old Norwegian international (who faced Italy as recently as last autumn) is a product of Rosenborg's famed academy. He's on a hot streak this season, having bagged 11 goals and 5 assists in only 25 games.

His 17 strikes and 7 assists in all competitions make him Europe's most decisive midfielder, at least in the continent's biggest leagues. Though his contract runs till 2017, Milan can bag him at a discounted price... but they'll rival Napoli, Everton and Crystal Palace for his services.

NYCFC manager Patrick Vieira moved Diskerud to a central midfield role this season, a change teammate Patrick Mullins says will benefit the former Rosenborg man.

"I think there's a comfort level, because that's where he really wants to play [in central midfield], I think it complements a lot of his skills well, and also I think it takes a little while to get used to the league," Mullins said.

"I thought he did well last year to fight through some of the tough times when you do get used to the league. I think he's really hitting his stride now."

Vieira agreed, adding: "What I like about him is his cleverness. I think he's a really smart player and he gets things quite really quickly, and technically he's really good, really comfortable on the ball. He's smart, he can score goals, he's a team player and that's good."

MIKAEL LUSTIG has told Celtic they’ll have to come and see him if they want to talk about a new contract.

The Swedish full-back has another season to go on his deal but with the opportunity to make a big impression in this summer’s Euro finals, he’s in no hurry to sign an extension.

Lustig has enjoyed one of his longest injury-free runs since joining Celtic from Rosenborg in 2012 and the 29-year-old believes that puts him in a strong position as his deal runs down.

He said: “Next season is the last year of my contract. Of course it’s up to Celtic as well what happens.

“I’m just focusing on playing for the club over the next year and we’ll see what happens. Last time I signed a new contract it was Celtic who came to me, so at the moment I’m just sitting quietly in my boat.”

Forgotten Baggie Cristian Gamboa has suggested a meeting with the club to potentially settle his contract a year ahead of schedule.

(...)

"I have one year left on my contract with WBA and wish that at the end we reach an agreement in which both parties are happy," he told reporters.

"Let's meet. I plan to stay in Europe after the end of the contract, and could stay there as much as possible."

Hibernian manager Neil Lennon has confirmed that he is hoping to sign Israel goalkeeper Ofir Marciano and Celtic midfielder Liam Henderson.

(...)

Henderson made 48 appearances for the Edinburgh side having had previous loan spells with Hearts and Rosenborg.

The Scotland Under-21 midfielder returned to Celtic and, although he featured in pre-season friendlies, he has not made any competitive appearances under new manager Brendan Rodgers in their Champions League qualifiers.

"He is a fine young player," Lennon told BBC Scotland.

"Obviously Brendan will still be assessing his squad, so we'll wait and see if there's anything going to come of that.

Doubting on this one:

Anderlecht target Henriksen

The 24-year-old's form has not gone unnoticed, with reports suggesting that Belgian giants Anderlecht are lining up a 5million euros bid for the midfielder, as they look to sign a replacement for Dennis Praet after he left the club earlier this week.

Gamboa:

“I took it like a challenge and now I am here at Celtic, one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

“I know Scotland is a little bit colder than home but it’s not minus 20 so that’s fine.

“Trondheim is really in the north but I liked the people there and the club. Rosenborg were very good to me.”

CELTIC new Bhoy Cristian Gamboa insists he will be ready for Rangers despite facing a frantic transatlantic trek.

Gamboa will have just one training session with his new Hoops teammates the day before the game but insisted he can hit the ground running against Gers .

The former Rosenborg full back - who penned a three year deal with the Hoops - said: “I’ve been travelling like this for four or five years so I hope I’ll be ready.

“You get used to these flights, you get used to back and forth, back and forth every time."

MIKAEL Lustig admits he is desperate to prolong his stay at Celtic - but has heard nothing from the club about a contract extension. The Swedish international full back has been a mainstay at Parkhead since Neil Lennon signed him from Norwegian side Rosenborg back in January 2012, but finds his future up in the air with his current deal due to expire this summer. While the 29-year-old is settled personally and professionally in Glasgow, Lustig could theoretically speak to other interested parties as early as January and would love to get matters sorted as soon as possible.

“There’s been no movement," said Lustig. "I’m in my last season and we haven’t discussed the contract so we will see what happens. But I want to stay. I’m really happy here and have been here for five years. I’ve loved every minute of my time here.”

Henderson returned to Celtic Park in the summer and following two substitute appearances under Rodgers, he made his first start in the 2-0 win at home to Motherwell on Saturday.

(...)

Henderson said: "When I came back I had quite a lot of teams interested in taking me on loan but I spoke to my family, friends, older experienced players I have played with and I speak to the manager regularly.

"I have done my loans. I have been out on two loan spells and I would like to think I have been pretty successful in those loan spells and I want to look back and have no regrets."

(...)

"I've been wanting to see young Liam for a period of time because I think he's a talent but it's been hard to get him in," Rodgers said.

After their Monday afternoon practice, sophomore midfielder Serge Gamwanya and graduate defender Lars Togstad walked off speaking Norwegian and laughing as if they’ve known each other for years.

In fact, they have.

Before Gamwanya came to the United States to play for Stony Brook, he played soccer in his native Norway. While playing for the club team Rosenborg BK and the international team two seasons ago, he met a teammate he would eventually become best friends with: Togstad.

(...)

Stony Brook Men’s Soccer head coach Ryan Anatol gave his insight on the bond between the two players and the roles the played in securing both players for Stony Brook. His own recollection differed from Gamwanya’s understanding of the recruitment process.

“We were focusing on Serge before Lars? Well that’s a little misleading,” Anatol chuckled.

“We brought Kofi [Ramirez Osei-Tutu] over first and they all played together during their youth,” Anatol continued. “We knew of Lars and we tried to get him the same year we got Serge. Lars was already at university and he wanted to get his bachelor’s degree first. But we are happy to have all of them.”

Heggem:

“I was really unlucky with injuries. I did my very best to get back playing, I thought the club did everything they could to get me fit.

“But rather than be bitter or regretful about the games I didn’t play, I’d rather appreciate those games that I did play.

“I’ve scored in front of the Kop, what more can you really ask for?”

Celtic star Mikael Lustig looks to prolong future with Parkhead side

"I love to be play for this club. I have been here for five years and hopefully I can be here a little bit longer.

"My agent has spoken to the club, I think. I do love playing for Celtic. It is a great club and hopefully we can find a solution because I would like to stay here. It is football, sometimes it takes a little bit of time."

In recent years Lustig has been plagued by hip, groin and ankle injuries and was constantly picking up niggles even after surgery to repair major hip problems in 2014.

But after reverting back to the fitness formula which saw him hardly miss a game for previous club Rosenborg, the defender is reaping the rewards this season at Celtic.

Read more: Celtic star Mikael Lustig: Why I refuse to apologise for this tackle on Neymar

He said: “A couple of years ago it wasn’t much fun. I always felt as if I’d pull a groin, a hamstring or something.

“But I decided to go back to the way I was when I was at Rosenborg when I was never injured. Over the past year I’ve played a lot of games and I feel really strong. The routine I returned to is more to do with what I do after training, such as work in the gym and the like.

“It’s nothing big on my diet, I’ve always been good about what I put in my stomach. It’s all to do with fitness and gym work to keep me at my best.”

Lustig prepared for the League Cup Final win over Aberdeen by noising up Barcelona ace Neymar in the Champions League.
