Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted he is aiming to make the best use of Oliver Burke, who can benefit from the training sessions at Parkhead considering he is keen to learn.

Burke, who became Celtic’s first signing of the winter transfer window, has joined the Bhoys on a six-month loan deal from Championship side West Brom.

The Scotland international will undoubtedly bolster the ranks at Parkhead, especially considering the club are yet to replace Moussa Dembele and are without the services of Leigh Griffiths.

Rodgers had to endure a difficult summer transfer window, but Celtic are back in recruitment business after the additions of Burke and Timothy Weah, albeit on loan deals.

The Hoops will be aiming to make the best of Burke's talents, while West Brom are looking for him to develop, and Rodgers thinks the winger is eager to learn.

“I think it’s a very important time for him”, Rodgers told Celtic View.

“He’s only 21, and his key strengths are his pace, his power, and he has an eye for goal.

“Coming into this environment, it’s very much a coaching environment, and in my conversations with him, I’ve found him very keen to learn and he’s very keen to take on that responsibility.

“There are lots of elements of his game that I think we can change a little, which we hope can change a lot for him individually, but will also benefit our team.”

Burke has already joined his new team-mates at Celtic for the club's mid-season training camp in Dubai.
