  • Nadir Ciftci signs for Pogon Szczecin on loan

    Nadir Ciftci signs for Pogon Szczecin on loan

    By: Newsroom Staff on 17 Feb, 2017 09:33

  • CELTIC striker Nadir Ciftci has joined Polish top-flight side Pogon Szczecin on loan until the end of the season (June 9).

    The 25-year-old, who joined the Hoops from Dundee United in July 2015, has played 26 times for the Hoops, scoring four times.

    He has found himself behind Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths in the pecking order this season which has limited his game-time to four substitute appearances.

    Speaking to the media on Thursday, Brendan Rodgers praised Ciftci’s professionalism as he explained the reasons behind Turk's loan move. The manager said: “It will be good for him to get some games. It’s been difficult for him because of the form of the other strikers here.

    "You have to give him massive credit because he’s been totally professional. He’s been a great guy to have around the squad, and I've given him some game-time lately as a reward for his hard work and endeavour.

    "He’s a striker and strikers want to play and score goals. This is a chance for him, between now and the end of the season, to get some games."

    Everyone at Celtic wishes Nadir all the best for his time at Pogon Szczecin
