Rasmussen in contention

Celtic striker Morten "Duncan" Rasmussen has put himself into contention for a place in the Denmark squad with a move to Parkhead on loan.

Rasmussen made the move from Danish club side Brondby, for whom he has netted 52 goals in 111 appearances, and Denmark's head coach Morten Olsen says he has been forced to take notice of his form.

"Rasmussen is a big strong striker who needs new challenges," Olsen said. "The competiveness for playing in Celtic's side can certainly improve his game. That's a good thing for us, because the better player he becomes, the better it is for Denmark."

Rasmussen remains firmly behind Bendtner and Tomasson in the pecking order - with Martin Jorgensen, Peter Lovenkrands and Jesper Gronkjaer all jostling for a seat on the flight to South Africa - but a successful four months at Celtic could help Rasmussen jump the queue and Danish legend Ebbe Sand believes he has what it takes.

"If Morten is playing all the time for Celtic and scoring goals then that will make his chances for the World Cup grow even bigger," he said. "It is good for him to go to a bigger club in a better league and it should help his chances of getting to South Africa.

"A lot can happen between now and the summer, but it is important that Morten is playing and doing well most weeks. We have Bendtner and Tomasson as our two main strikers but most squads need a third striker, too. Everyone wants to go to the World Cup and Morten has a real chance."
