Football: Craig will goal wild.

FORMER Rangers striker Robert Fleck is convinced his first strike partner, Craig Bellamy,will score for fun in the SPL.

The Welshman, who joined Celtic last night on loan until the end of the season, made his professional debut in 1997 when he came on as a sub and joined Fleck in attack for Norwich against Crystal Palace.

And Fleck reckons he knew Bellamy was destined to become a star in the game, with controversy never far away.

He said: 'Craig is a class act - a top, top player who is a very good forward and who will score a lot of goals. I remember when he broke into the Norwich team and I played a few times with him.

'Yes, he has got his faults because he opens his mouth before he speaks - always has done,always will.

'But with Martin O'Neill he will knuckle down and show everyone what a player he is. This is a real coup for Celtic - he'll be brilliant for them.'
