Scott Brown: Compper has made an instant impact at Celtic


As Celtic fans eagerly await the debut of January signing Marvin Compper later this month, club captain Scott Brown has spoken glowingly about the Bhoys’ new recruit.

The 32-year-old completed a £1m move from Bundesliga side Red Bull Leipzig last week and has travelled with the squad to Dubai for a winter training Camp and Brown has been impressed with the centre-backs efforts.

Speaking to Celtic TV, Brown states that Compper has made an instant impact, making an effort to get to know his teammates ahead of the second half of the season.


Brendan Rodgers is expected to oversee a defensive shakeup this month. Following the arrival of Compper, Danish centre-back Erik Sviatchenko is expected to leave the club with FC Copenhagen linked with a move, while there has also been talk that Cristian Gamboa could leave to play more regular football in a World Cup year.
