CELTIC have completed the signing of Costa Rican international defender Cristian Gamboa from West Brom on a three-year deal – as CQN revealed this morning.

The right-back is Brendan Rodgers’ fifth signing of the summer following Moussa Dembele, Kolo Toure, Scott Sinclair and Dorus de Vries.

The 27-year-old, who has 50 caps for his country, is an attack-minded full-back who will challenge Mikael Lustig and Saidy Janko for a starting spot with the Hoops.

 A club statement read: “Celtic are delighted to announce the signing of Cristian Gamboa from English Premier League side West Bromwich Albion on a three-year deal.

“The Costa Rican internationalist has notched up almost 50 appearances for his country and he was a star of the side that reached the 2014 World Cup quarter-finals.

“A pacy full-back with attacking instincts, the 26-year-old has spent the past two years at The Hawthorns after impressing for Norwegian side Rosenborg.

“He has also had spells at Fredrikstad and Danish outfit FC Copenhagen, having left his homeland at the age of 21.”

Welcome to Celtic, Cristian.
