Wolves new boy Charlie Mulgrew has given his first in depth interview since joining Wanderers on a three year contract.

A natural left sided player who can adapt to a myriad of positions, Mulgrew is keen to make an impact at the club, and grab any chance he gets to play in old gold and black.

‘I’ve played left-back, left centre-half and left midfield,’ he told the clubs official site.

‘So, I’m hoping there will be opportunities for me.’ he added.

Before the offer of a deal at Molineux was made, Charlie considered a move to St Mirren, that desperate was he to get first team action.

But once Wolves made there offer, there was only one place Charlie was going to end up.

‘The move here has all happened very quickly so I’m just taking each day as it comes at the moment but I want to fight for a place in the team as soon as possible.

‘I didn’t know I was going to be coming here until a couple of days ago. I got a call from my agent to say Wolves wanted me as part of the Naylor deal.

‘I’ve been looking for something over the summer, either a loan or a move, because I’m desperate to play first team football and it didn’t look like it was going to happen for me at Celtic. So I was delighted to get the offer from Wolves.’

Just as Lee Naylor grew up at Molineux, Charlie joined Celtic at an early age, and teh move gives him chance to renew an old aquaintance, if not in a slightly different capacity, as he goes on to explain.

‘It’s a big move for me because I’ve been with Celtic since I was 11. But Wolves is a big club and the training facilities here are great.’

‘I used to do Jackie’s boots when I was a youth team player so I know him well. I didn’t have chance to talk to him before I signed but it was nice this morning to walk in and have someone here who I knew.’

‘Now I’m looking forward to getting on with training and getting to know all the boys here.’
