    Celtic delighted to sign Vasilis Barkas on a four-year deal

  • CELTIC Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Greek international goalkeeper, Vasilis Barkas, who has joined the club on a four-year deal from AEK Athens.

    The 26-year-old, who has been capped 10 times by Greece, has spent the past four years with AEK. And he already has experience of playing at Paradise, having been in the AEK Athens side which took on Celtic in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League back in 2018.

    The sides drew 1-1 in Glasgow, with Callum McGregor scoring for the Hoops, with the Greeks winning 2-1 in Athens to progress to the play-off round.

    Vasilis becomes Celtic’s second Greek player, following in the footsteps of Georgios Samaras, who spent five-and-a-half-years with the Hoops, making 253 appearances and scoring 74 goals.

    Everyone at Celtic welcomes Vasilis to the club and wishes him every success in the years ahead.

    Exclusive interview with new Celtic signing, Vasilis Barkas, coming up soon on the official Celtic website.
