Kayal: Celtic too good to turn down

Beram Kayal has promised to make Celtic's fans happy again after claiming playing in the Champions League meant nothing compared to starring for "one of the best clubs in the world".
Kayal's hopes of appearing in the Champions League for a second successive season suffered a huge blow Wednesday night when Celtic slumped to a 3-0 first leg defeat to Sporting Braga in the third qualifying round.
"I came here so happy, so excited," said Kayal, who completed his move from Maccabi Haifa on Thursday morning.
"I'm just thinking about the moment I get on the pitch and play for the Celtic fans. This is all I care about.
"When you speak about the Champions League, it's nothing. When you say Celtic, it's a big, big thing.
"Celtic is a big name, it's a big community. I'm happy to play for one of the best clubs in the world and I'm not thinking about other things.
"It's a big thing for me - a dream come true. All last week during the discussions I couldn't sleep. I just wanted to be where I am now.
"Now I just want one more thing - to see the fans happy."
