NEW Celtic signing Gary Mackay-Steven last night spoke of a “crazy couple of hours” before his fast-forwarded move from Dundee United was completed.

The 24-year-old winger had signed a pre-contract to join Celtic in the summer but after the two clubs agreed a fee late on Monday night he signed a four-and-a-half year deal.

Midfielder Stuart Armstrong, 22, also made the move from United to Celtic, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal just before the transfer window slammed shut.

Mackay-Steven was clearly delighted with the day’s developments: “It’s amazing to finally be here and for it all to be done and dusted.
“The pre-contract happened a few weeks ago and I was delighted back then but I was unsure if it was going to be now or if I’d be joining in the summer.

“But to get it all done and dusted is great and I just can’t wait to start.

“It was a crazy couple of hours. I wasn’t sure at the start of the day whether it would go through but thankfully it did and the medical got done so it’s great to sign on the dotted line.

“Everything is just a dream. I can’t wait to get started. I’m just buzzing.”
