Bangura pleased by AIK loan move

Mohamed Bangura believes his loan move to old club AIK Solna will restore his deadly reputation in front of goal.

The Sierra Leonean international returned to the Swedish top flight three weeks ago after a torrid spell at Scottish champions Celtic.

He arrived in Scotland in August last year but injuries limited his contributions on the pitch.

The Glasgow giants signed him following recommendations by club legend Henrik Larsson.

The 23-year-old striker's 16 appearances, mostly from the bench, did not yield a single goal.

But Bangura told BBC Sport that moving back to the club where he made his name will help him to bounce back

"I have no regrets but I was disappointed at not playing because of injuries," he said.

"Not being able to play was really hard. It was hurting me, it was not fun, but that's life."

Bangura, who scored his first goal for over a year in AIK Solna's victory over Djurgården last weekend, is hoping to go back to Celtic a stronger character.

"I'll be a better player and ready to fight for a place when I go back to Celtic."
