The victory pushed Celtic up to fifth place on the Absa
Premiership standings following two victories, one defeat and a draw.
According to KickOff, Larsen admits that Celtic have been
working hard behind the scenes to inject the club with players that have pace.
"We brought Helder
Pelembe and Geoffrey Massa because we know their qualities; they are proven at
international level,” said the club coach.
“For the past couple of seasons we have tried to inject some
pace into the team. If you look at players we signed, like Wana [currently out
injured], they will fit like a glove.
“The South African market has been blown out of proportion
and we are not a club that forks out millions for a player. We got Massa for
free and Wana as well – these are players that were leading lights at teams
that were struggling last season… same with Pelembe: he was at [Pirates] where
chances of playing were scarce.”
