CELTIC have confirmed that Carl Starfelt has left the club for La Liga side Celta Vigo.
The Swedish international central defender has ended his two-year association with the treble winners after arriving as a £4.2million recruit from Russian outfit Rubin Kazan, as CQN reported at the weekend.
The Hoops have not gone into details of the move, but the fee is believed to be in the region of £5million for the pivot who scored three goals in his 87 appearances for the team.
THE LAST HURRAH…Carl Starfelt celebrates his goal in Celtic’s 5-0 win over Aberdeen in the final Premiership game of the campaign.
Starfelt made his debut for the club only two days after arriving in Scotland as the club needed an experienced centre-back after Kristoffer Ajer’s move to Brentford the previous month. Unfortunately, it was a 2-1 loss against Hearts at Tynecastle on July 31 2021.
The 28-year-old defender won five domestic trophies at the Hoops, including playing his part in last term’s world record eighth treble.
Starfelt formed a formidable partnership with Cameron Carter-Vickers who joined a month after the Stockholm-born ace on loan from Spurs which was made permanent last summer in a £6million deal.
