MARCO TILIO has returned on loan to Melbourne City for the remainder of the season.
The Australian international has played a mere 28 minutes since his £2million arrival at Celtic in June and Brendan Rodgers has allowed the winger to move to get some crucial game time.
Tilio, who is currently with the Socceroos squad in Qatar for the Asian Cup, was put into cold storage at Parkhead shortly after sealing his five-year deal when it was discovered he was suffering from a torn quad thigh muscle.
NOW YOU SEE ME…Marco Tilio holds his new Celtic shirt on the first day of his June arrival.
The 22-year-old raider’s career at the champions got off to a false start and his debut stalled for FIVE months before his cameo role as a late substitute in the 1-1 home draw with Motherwell.
He also came off the substitutes’ bench in the 4-1 home win over Hibs in early December.
