Toljan Toljan thankful for Celtic spell

Jeremy Toljan believes he improved as a player during his loan stint at Celtic and hopes to break into the Borussia Dortmund side next season.

The German full-back joined Celtic in January on a temporary deal until the end of the campaign and struggled to make any real impact, managing just seven Premiership starts and 14 appearances in total across all competitions.

Toljan found himself behind Mikael Lustig in the Parkhead pecking order but he still feels he benefitted from his time in Scotland.

It is thought BVB will try and offload Toljan during the summer window but the 24-year-old hasn’t given up hope of forcing his way into the Dortmund side next term.

“I’m looking forward to playing for Dortmund next season. You never know what will happen in football, but my plan is definitely to stay with Borussia Dortmund,” he said.

“I had a great time at Celtic. At the weekend we completed our season by winning the Scottish Cup Final to make it a treble.

“It was a great experience and due to my time in Scotland I have returned a better player and I also have winners’ medals from the league and the cup.

“Now I want to try and make the same impact with Dortmund.”
