I'm no replacement - Balde

Celtic's latest signing Amido Balde has likened his playing style to Emmanuel Adebayor after arriving from Vitoria Guimaraes.

"Celtic fans can expect to see me scoring goals and setting up a few as well" - Amido Balde
The 22-year-old Portuguese striker joined the Hoops for a fee of around 1.8m on a four-year deal after nine goals in 27 games for his club last season.

However, Balde insists he shouldn't simply be regarded as a possible straight replacement if leading scorer Gary Hooper departs Parkhead.

"I am here because I am 22 years old to learn from Gary, to follow him and take his example," he told the Daily Record. "We don't have the same similarities but he is a good striker.

"My style is more like Emmanuel Adebayor," Balde continued. "The Celtic fans can expect to see me scoring goals and setting up a few as well."
