After a week at Celtic it looks like Jeremy Toljan has been playing his whole career with the Hoops.
The entire month of January seemed to be taken up with the elusive search for a right-back going on until two hours away from the transfer window closing.
In the final couple of days attention turned to the 24-year-old who hadn’t made a single Bundesliga appearance this term.
Two days after touching down in Scotland, Toljan found himself listed as a substitute away to St. Johnstone and when Mikael Lustig picked up a first half knock the German was thrown into a dramatic debut.
Toljan linked up instantly with James Forrest, pushing forward impressively but in a measured way as Celtic hunted down the breakthrough.
In midweek against Hibs, he provided the assist for Ryan Christie to open the scoring and the worries over the problem position started to clear.
During 2018, Jack Hendry, Lustig, Kris Ajer, Cristian Gamboa and Tony Ralston all played at right-back but it now looks like the loan signing from Dortmund has nailed it. His biggest test comes on Thursday when Valencia visit on Europa League duty.
And it’s safe to say, Celtic fans on Twitter are delighted with Toljan’s contributions so far…
Jeremy Toljan’s loan move to Celtic is now official ✅

Jeremy Toljan has been outstanding last few games. @CelticFC should work hard and get him signed on a perm contract. Team looking sharp since winter break – don’t see many points being dropped, particularly if injured players return soon. #10IAR

Jeremy Toljan is exactly what we’ve needed down that right side.
Olly Burke has pace and power in spades.
Big shout to Jonny Hayes. Motored up and down the left side all day and did great to set up Jamesy’s goal.
Brown and McGregor imperious in the centre.
