CELTIC have completed the signing of Dunfermline striker Paul ‘PJ’ Crossan – as CQN reported last week.
And young Hoops forward Paul McMullan, who spent last season on loan at St Mirren, has agreed another temporary move to East End Park for the upcoming campaign.
Crossan, 17, made only made two first team appearances for the Fifers, but was out of contract and had rejected the offer of a new deal. He has signed a three-year contract with the five-in-a-row champions.Dunfermline chairman Ross McArthur, whose side won League One last season, said: “I would like to wish PJ well in his future career at Celtic, which is naturally a fantastic opportunity for him.
“I would also like to thank Celtic for their assistance in this matter to ensure it could be resolved amicably.’
It will be the fourth loan spell for Scotland Under-19 international McMullan, who is a product of the Celtic youth system.He scored three goals in 19 games for Stenhousemuir in League One at the start of 2015. However, the 20-year-old attacker netted only once in 22 games for St Mirren and equalled that feat in nine outings for Morton.
However, he is looking forward to shining at East End Park and said: “I knew, having played here before with Stenhousemuir, how big a club it is and I’m looking forward to being part of it.
“It’s a hard league, I played in it last year, it was tricky, but it’s one I hope I can do well in.”
