But despite his poor return, there seemed to be a portion of the Celtic fanbase that were sad to see him go, with some claiming that he was never given a fair chance to make his mark on the :

“Gutted, I’ve seen him play for the Poland u21s was class, gave 100% whenever he put on the hoops shame he wasn’t given more opportunities all the best to him”
