STRENGTH says RONNIE CULLY
THE Finnish striker hit the ground running with a couple of goals in his first three appearances for the club.
However, that initial adrenalin rush appears to have dried up, and he is now looking a lot less potent.
While Pukki is finding out about life as a Celtic player, opponents are finding out about him.
The first thing they will have noticed is he is lightweight, in terms of stature. And, given the physical nature of the game in this country, that is going to be a real handicap.
The sooner he adds a bit more muscle to his frame, the quicker he will be able to stand up to the demands of playing here.
The balance will be to retain his sharpness while adding this much-needed bulk, and the fact he has to regularly head off on international duty means any strengthening regime the Hoops put in place is disrupted.
TO HIT NET AGAIN says ALISON McCONNELL
TEEMU PUKKI is a player who looks slightly too anxious to please.
The Finnish striker was given a start against Motherwell, but still looks as though he has not quite settled into the Celtic side, albeit it is still early days.
It may be the 23-year-old needs a couple more goals to his name before he feels a bit more relaxed and senses there isn't quite so much pressure on him.
The problem with being an Old Firm striker is there is always intense scrutiny in every match and, the longer time goes on, the harder it can be for players to settle.
However, Pukki has shown in glimpses he has something to offer. It may just be that over the next few weeks he gets a run of domestic games under his belt and manages to get himself on the scoresheet.
Confidence is the key for strikers and there is nothing that will imbue the player with that more than a couple of goals.
