He will also be looking to catch up with two of his fellow Dutchmen.
"I met Derk [Boerrigter] and Virgil [van Dijk] at the airport and we had a wee chat," he revealed. "I hadn't met them before but I knew who they were from back home. It's nice to speak Dutch instead of English for a change.
"I saw Celtic's game against Milan," he added. "It's daunting to go up against a side that looked so comfortable playing against on the biggest teams in the world. We got a draw after they played Barcelona last year, so hopefully they have another hangover this time."
