Trending: Mourinho unhappy with coach

By ESPN Staff

Cha Du-Ri a big fan of Ljungberg's pants

Cha Du-Ri admits he is an admirer of Celtic target Freddie Ljungberg's underwear as well as his football talent.

Hoops boss Neil Lennon will meet the former Arsenal and West Ham star on Monday with a view to signing the player who also famously modelled Calvin Klein briefs.

Cha, who scored his first goal for Celtic in the first minute of injury time against St Johnstone before South Korea team mate Ki Sung-yueng clinched the points with a second, revealed he is a fan of the Swedish legend on and off the pitch and relishes the prospect of Ljungberg joining him at Parkhead.

The full-back said: "Freddie Ljungberg is a very famous player and I like his underwear. I have a lot of Calvin Klein underwear at home, maybe I'll show him. Seriously, he's a good player and if he comes to us then I think he can help us. It's great for us.''

Cha and Ki now fly out on Asian Cup duty in Qatar which could see them absent from Parkhead for most of January. However, the defender is hoping the Hoops have leapfrogged SPL leaders Rangers, who lead Celtic by two points having played a game less, by the time he returns.

"I hope Celtic can be top of the league for me and Ki coming back from the Asian Cup,'' he said. "We have a lot of players both in my position and Ki's position so I'm not worried. I'm sure they can play well without us.''

Ljungberg has declared himself ready to play in Sunday's Old Firm derby after arriving in Glasgow to link up with Celtic.

Ljungberg told the Daily Record: "I've seen the Old Firm derby on television and I've had friends who have been over to the games. They have said some amazing things about the fixture so of course I would like to play in it.

"I'm available to play for any club on January 1 so we'll see what happens. I'm as fit as I've been for a long time since I had surgery on my hip two years ago.''

While Ljungberg is sure to grab all the headlines if he completes the move to Celtic, Lennon is hoping a player already at Parkhead will make his mark in the forthcoming weeks.

Former Juventus and Wigan midfielder Olivier Kapo has struggled with injury since signing in November but made his debut as a second-half substitute against the Perth men - and Lennon was glad to see him in action at last.

"We have him on a short-term contract but he has been injured,'' Lennon said. "He went away to France with the injury and came back and has worked very hard and looked sharp in training and we thought it might be an opportunity to give him some game time.

"You never know, we might have unearthed a player. He is here until the end of January and we will see how he goes in the next three or four weeks.''
