TM: New Bhoy can be Ki performer

18 January 2010 08:37
With Landry N'Guemo on African Nations Cup duty, Ki started his Celtic career at the base of a midfield diamond during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Scottish Premier League bottom club Falkirk.

The 20-year-old looked comfortable in possession and his attacking potential was briefly demonstrated when a 30-yard free-kick almost found the top corner, only for Robert Olejnik to pull off an acrobatic save.

And Mowbray will allow that part of the South Korean's game to flourish when the likes of N'Guemo return. Mowbray said: "When we get some players back that are not available at the moment, he will play further up the pitch.

"With his ball-striking, he will threaten the opposition goal, rather than hitting 60-yard diagonals out to wide players.

"He can shoot, as we saw with one free-kick, and I'm looking forward to getting the balance of our team right when we get some players back."
