Mo: Hey surgery went well and all parties involved were happy with the result. Now is the annoying part as I'm on crutches for 4-6 weeks and out for possibly 3 months but I'll get some time to go home and see my family for a little bit so that's good. I'm just staying positive and keeping my head and am anxious to start my rehab.
His immediate priority:
Mo: Well first I need to get fit and get my knee back healthy and strong. From there, fight and earn a spot back in the lineup.
The cultural experience and the storied Old Firm rivalry:
Mo: The accent is pretty strong lol so that's taking some getting used to. I'd say biggest difference is this culture is dominated by football whereas that's not the case in the States. The rivalry between Rangers and Celtic is massive and if you play for either there's a lot of responsibility on your shoulders and a lot more attention on you so you need to always be aware of your behavior. Also, its funny basically its like half of the city absolutely loves you and the other half hates you with a passion.
He also thinks Leo Messi is better than Cristiano Ronaldo. Good man.
