Diomansy Kamara insists he was delighted to be upstaged by Robbie Keane mere hours after being unveiled himself as Celtic's big transfer window signing.
Kamara was the centre of attention after joining the Hoops on loan from Fulham on Monday morning.
But his capture could hardly have been more quickly forgotten once news emerged Keane was on his way from Barclays Premier League side Tottenham.
Yet, rather than act as if his thunder had been stolen, Kamara was as giddy as any Celtic fan about the capture of his fellow 29-year-old.
"When you have top-class players in your team, you're always excited to play with these kinds of players," Kamara said.
"You play football to play with the best players. When we saw him arrive, we said, 'Ah, nice'. It's better he signed for Celtic than for Rangers!"
