    Celtic sign Jozo Simunovic

    By: Mark Henderson on 01 Sep, 2015 23:00

  • CELTIC Football Club is delighted to announce that it has signed Jozo Simunovic, aged 21, from Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb on a five-year contract.

    Jozo is a highly rated young player and is currently part of the Croatian U21 national team and he joins hot on the heels of Ryan Christie who agreed a move from Inverness Caledonian Thistle earlier this evening. 

    Jozo said: “I am absolutely delighted to join Celtic.  I know what a huge club I am joining, one of the biggest in Europe, and I know about its history and its great supporters.

    “I can’t wait to get started and join up with my new team and begin my career at Celtic.

    “I am looking forward to this move very much, I am desperate to get to Scotland and play at the famous Celtic Park.

    “I know we have a lot to play for this season and there are many exciting times ahead, this is my reason for joining Celtic.

    “I want to win things in my career and I think I can do this at Celtic. All I can promise the supporters is that I will be giving everything I have in every game to win and bring some good moments to our fans.”

    Celtic Manager Ronny Deila added: “We are so pleased that Jozo is joining us at Celtic and I am sure he will be a great addition to our squad.

    "He is a very talented young player and good on the ball, but he will also give us strength and stability in defence. I am sure he will be a success for us.

    “I believe what we have done in the summer has given us a squad with real depth for the season ahead. 

    “We already had a strong squad going into the summer period and we have now signed eight quality players in this transfer window.

    “Again we will once again look to strengthen in the January transfer window.

    "We have the resources available to do this and this is something we always aim to do, ensuring that we are as well equipped as possible to bring our supporters as much success as we possibly can.”
