    Andrew Gutman joins Charlotte Independence on loan

    By: Newsroom Staff on 24 Feb, 2019 07:17

  • AMERICAN youngster, Andrew Gutman who signed for the Hoops on a three-and-a-half-year contract earlier this year, has joined United Soccer League Championship side, Charlotte Independence on a year-long loan deal, although Celtic have the option to recall him in the summer.

    The 22-year-old defender will team up with former Celtic youth coach, Jim McGuinness who was appointed manager of the American club in December.

    On joining the Hoops, Gutman said: “When I realised Celtic FC wanted to sign me permanently, I was really honoured. I know Celtic is a huge name in football, they have tremendous supporters and it is a club where I believe I can flourish as a player.

    "For the immediate period I will be focusing on my loan in America where I look forward to playing as many matches as I can. After that, I can’t wait to join Celtic and be part of such a storied institution.”

    He said on sealing the deal with Charlotte Independence: “My goal is to get back to Celtic. Having Jim here, he knows the Celtic way very well, so I'm excited to learn under him, and I'm looking forward to getting the season going.”

    Everyone at Celtic wishes Andrew all the best in his loan spell with Charlotte Independence.
