'Tic dad: My baby Bhoy joy.

Byline: STUART MacDONALD

CELTIC star Momo Sylla celebrated the birth of his first child - and promptly rushed off for training.

Sylla, 26, spent just a few precious moments with his baby boy and girlfriend Julie before dashing off to Celtic's Barrowfield base.

And the workaholic Guinea international admitted his Hoops pals have given him pelters for rushing straight back.

He said: "Some of the boys have been teasing me. I never take a day off. It's my job and my girlfriend understands.

"But she also knows I will leave straight for the hospital as soon as it is finished."

The winger revealed Wednesday's birth was his reason for pulling out of the African Nations Cup.

He said: "I'm very, very happy about becoming a father, it beats scoring any kind of goal.

"It was is the best day of my life and I am so grateful for my wee boy."

Momo revealed Julie and the baby, who's still to be named, are in "perfect health".
