New faces will settle soon - Kamara

New-look Celtic are ready to begin salvaging their Clydesdale Bank Premier League title hopes, according to Diomansy Kamara. The Senegal international scored his first goal since joining on loan from Fulham in January as Celtic advanced to the Active Nation Scottish Cup quarter-finals with a 4-2 win at Dunfermline on Sunday. Robbie Keane, on loan from Spurs, also got on the scoresheet for the first time with a penalty while Morten Rasmussen doubled his Hoops' tally since arriving from Brondby last month with a second-half strike. Celtic, with eight new faces in their squad following a busy January transfer window, face a crucial run of four league games as they attempt to claw back Rangers' 10-point lead. They host Hearts at Parkhead on Wednesday before travelling to Aberdeen on Saturday. Dundee United are then next up at home before the Old Firm derby at Ibrox on February 28. Kamara told The Evening Times: "The important thing now is to try to build on that kind of display. We are a team that has not played very often together and there are a lot of new faces. But I think once we get two or three games together that you will see a very good side because there are some fantastic players here. Everyone knows we need to start winning games in the league."
