Ljungberg ready for Old Firm debut

Saturday 01 January 2011 01:00

Freddie Ljungberg insists he is fit enough to take a leading role at Celtic.

The 33-year-old Swedish midfielder has signed for the Scots until the end of the season at least with a view to a longer-term deal at Parkhead.

For the last 18 months Ljungberg has played in the Major League Soccer and could make his debut against Rangers tomorrow. "I feel really fit and now I feel I can run past people and move again like the old days," he said. "I am delighted to be here and I am really looking forward to it."
