The Daily Record reported last week that Bitton was keen to remain with Celtic, with his family settled in Glasgow, with Neil Lennon also going public in recent weeks about his desire to keep the 28-year-old at the club (as per The Scottish Sun).

The versatile Israeli, who has been a defensive midfielder for most of his career but played mainly at centre-back this season, has come back from a year-long knee injury to make 21 appearances so far this term and 202 in total for the Hoops, with six league titles, four League Cups and three Scottish Cups among his sizeable medal haul with the club.

These Celtic fans on Twitter expressed their delight with the news of Bitton’s contract extension:
