Celtic have completed the signing of 20-year-old Nigerian, Rabiu Ibrahim subject to a medical, after he was released by PSV Eindhoven earlier this month. Rabiu is known as a creative-central midfielder, a role that Celtic have played possibly as few as a dozen times in the last decade.
After leaving Nigeria full of promise as a 17-year-old the player failed to make the desired impact in Portugal and the Netherlands, but will still be regarded as a development project by the Celtic technical staff. His short history in Europe, with tales of agents and representation investors already has enough material for a short novel, which will not have aided development.
The job for Celtic is to get Rabiu plugged back into his potential. It remains to be seen what role he is deployed in when he gets the chance.
Welcome to Celtic, Rabiu.
