Celtic midfielder Biram Kayal is the SPL Player of the Month.

The former Maccabi Haifa star, 22, has been a revelation since returning from a groin operation and has starred in the recent Old Firm derbies against Rangers.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon said: "I am delighted with him. He is a hungry boy.

"He came back from his injury far, far better than we expected and he has just carried it on.

"He has made a huge difference in the last month or so, he has been superb.

"He has bought into the concept of the club which is important and we think he has more to come in the next few years."
