    Celtic delighted as Marvin Compper joins the Scottish champions

    By: Newsroom Staff on 20 Dec, 2017 15:00

  • CELTIC are delighted to announce that Marvin Compper has joined the Scottish Champions. The German internationalist has signed a two-and-a-half year contract and will officially join up with his new team-mates on January 1, 2018.

    The 32-year-old defender is an experienced Bundesliga player, and has signed for Brendan Rodgers’ side from RB Leipzig, with whom he’d helped finish second in the German league last season, their highest ever finish.

    Marvin Compper becomes the third German to play for Celtic, following in the footsteps of Andy Thom and Andreas Hinkel. And he will make his first appearance at Celtic Park tonight (Wednesday) at the game against Partick Thistle when the Hoops fans will be able to give him a warm Paradise welcome. 

    Exclusive Celtic TV interview with Celtic's new signing, Marvin Compper, to follow shortly.
