Norwich City are proving a surprise to everyone at present, with a stunning run of form Briefly taking them top of the Championship over the weekend. It came after they thrashed Sheffield Wednesday 4-0 at Hillsborough. One of the main inspirations behind the win was the performance of the returning Teemu Pukki.
The 28-year-old striker had missed the previous three games with a hamstring complaint. However, he scored twice as Norwich romped to victory.
Signed on a free transfer from Brondby this summer, the Finland international is firing Norwich toward a promotion tilt. Outscoring the usually devastating at this level Jordan Rhodes, Pukki has eight goals from 15 games this season.
It is impressive form that has left Celtic fans, frankly, baffled.
Celtic snapped up Pukki from Schalke 04 in the summer of 2013 costing a reported £3 million. Signed as a replacement for Gary Hooper, who had ironically headed to Norwich, the hope was he would suit Scottish football and find goals easy to come by.
However, that did not prove the case.
He scored on his debut but soon enough the goals and his form evaded him. He managed just nine goals in 37 games for Celtic before joining Danish side Brondby, initially on loan, in 2014.
Celtic are happy with their current striking options. However, they will no doubt wish they had got to see the best of Pukki during his time at Parkhead.
Norwich fans will just be pleased he is enjoying his second experience of British football more than the first.
