    Aleksandar Tonev delighted to join Celtic

  • BULGARIAN internationalist Aleksandar Tonev has joined Celtic on a season-long loan, with the club having the option to buy him at the end of the loan period.

    The 24-year-old attacker joins from Aston Villa, having moved to the English Premier League side last summer from Lech Poznan. He has also been capped 15 times by Bulgaria.

    A delighted Aleksandar spoke exclusively the official Celtic website, and he explained that he’s looking forward to playing for the Scottish champions this season.

    “Joining Celtic is unbelievable, and I feel really good about it,” he said. “I’m delighted to have joined the club and I can’t wait to meet up with my new team-mates and start playing for Celtic.

    “I already knew all about Celtic. Everybody in Bulgaria knows Celtic. I spoke to Stiliyan Petrov yesterday and he was very happy for me. He wished me good luck and I hope I can do as well for Celtic as Stiliyan did.

    “I’m an attacking player, and usually play on the left side of the park, and I like to create and score goals.”

    Speaking of his new signing, Celtic manager Ronny Deila said: “Aleksandar’s a very quick player and he has two good feet which he can shoot with.

    “He has scored a lot of goals during his time at Lech Poznan and I think he can help bring the club forward with his qualities. We can also make him better.”
