Celtic confirmed the signing of right-back Josip Juranovic from Legia Warsaw on Saturday, subject to international clearance.
As to be expected, a number of Hoops supporters went wild on social media following the announcement.
You’d expect that the 26-year-old will come in and rival Anthony Ralston at right-back, although all seven of his starts this season for his previous club had come as a right midfielder.
Juranovic, who scored on his final appearance for Legia Warsaw in a Europa League qualifier, looks set to bring plenty of versatility to Ange Postecoglou’s squad, and a number of supporters were delighted that a five-year deal is now confirmed.
Celtic fans react
Celtic shared the news regarding Juranovic on their official Twitter page. Here is what these Hoops fans had to say in reply, with plenty voicing their delight with the deal, which one fan labelled “incredible value for money”.
“HERE WE GO”
“Wooooow. Huge signing, buzzing for today”
“Incredible value for money for a Croatian international who has featured in the latest Euros. A 5-year deal is good business too. Gives him a large amount of time to shift the Bellshill Bergomi out of the team”
“More good news for the Hoops, Josip Juranovic is a Celt!“
“Signing international defenders…what madness is this @CelticFC?“
“Brilliant singing for good money too. Hope Ralston isn’t dropped for him, wait until Tony doesn’t play well as he’s doing fantastic at the minute.”
“Daylight robbery, what a signing”
