A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to call on the club to offer a new contract to Nir Bitton in the wake of comments he made this week on his situation at Parkhead.
Should Nir Bitton be given a new contract?
As reported by the Daily Record, the 28-year-old Israel international is keen on staying in Glasgow but, with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season, he conceded that his future at the club is out of his hands, saying: “It’s something you need to ask Peter Lawwell instead of me.”
He also expressed his affection for Celtic and Glasgow by saying: “I love this club and I want to stay. I am settled here, my kids live here, so we will see” (via Daily Record), with those quotes shared by @CelticSoccrShow on Twitter.
However, he came into the season recovering from a knee injury which ruled him out of action for almost a whole year, as per The Scottish Sun.
These Celtic fans on Twitter were appreciative of Bitton’s comments and his contribution to the club and have called for him to be given a new deal at Parkhead:
