Bangura: Celtic just a stepping stone

Celtic new boy Mohamed Bangura has candidly revealed his ambition to win a move to one of Europe's elite leagues, claiming he could leave Parkhead as early as next year.

• Sion challenge UEFA decision
• PLAY Champions League fantasy
• Sign up for Champions League Pick 'em

Bagura, 22, signed a four-year deal when he moved from Swedish side AIK Stockholm last month with the fee reportedly £2 million.

The Sierra Leone forward is in line to make his Hoops debut in their SPL clash with Motherwell at Celtic Park on Saturday. However, he is keen for his career to progress further than the SPL and hopes a good season in Scotland can attract the attention of clubs in England, Spain and Italy.

"Coming to Celtic is a good move for me, but I want to reach the top,'' Bangura said. "That's what I'm working towards and this is a step forward for me. I am still fighting to reach the highest level.

"To come to Celtic gives me a good feeling because it's another step in my career. I have to work to get to the top. I'm talking about the Spanish league, the English league or maybe the Italian league.

"If I can do my best here with Celtic then I will see what the future holds. If possible, I could make the next step in one year - if everything goes well and the club is willing, why not?"
