Luis Palma denies Celtic transfer exit claims as he makes defiant vow on future

Luis Palma has quashed claims he is unhappy at Celtic and vowed to get back to his best form.

The Honduran winger arrived from Greek side Aris last summer and immediately hit the ground running as one of the best signings and top players in the league, scoring and creating goals for his side. As the season went on though, his influence waned and he became more of a bit-part player in Brendan Rodgers' side, with injury also playing his part.

Reports in his homeland suggested he wasn't happy with losing his place in the side and that he could look to find a transfer. But the 24-year-old has denied that, pointing out he signing a five-year contract last summer and he intends to stay and recapture his early season from from the last campaign.

Palma said: "That's the first time I have heard of that. I have no idea where that came from. I have only been at Celtic for a year. I have four years left of my contract.

"I am focusing on the new season and getting back to the level I was at when I first arrived. It won't take much to get me back to that.

"The pre-season will be important for me because we want to become champions again, I want to work harder to ensure that happens again. This week the pre-season begins at Celtic, but I get extra days off because I was playing with the national team."
