van Dijk signs four year deal

1571

Absolutely delighted at the arrival of Dutch under-21 international central defender, Virgil van Dijk, on a four year deal.  A central defender was one of three priorities for this summer and we have secured our first choice target.

The signing will also give a boost to the squad, and a timely reminder to all that amidst talk of player potentially leaving ‘at the right price’, the Celtic Story is one of progress.

Celtic had the tallest team in the Champions League last season.  They were also top scorers from headed goals in the competition until Bayern Munich caught them in the semi-finals.  With the addition of two 6’4” players (van Dijk and Balde) we look to be consolidating our strengths.

Welcome to Celtic, Virgil.

Have you registered for 1254125 yet?  Tom Conniffe has.  He is walking the Leeds-Liverpool Canal in five days, which measures in a tad over 125 miles, all for the campaign.  It is this simple to participate; find something you can do, register online and get goingYou can support Tom here.

Last call for tonight’s special Lions Roar event.  Watch the 1967 European Cup final on big screens in the Kerrydale Suite followed by a Q&A with the men who made history (including Willie Wallace, Heart of a Lion available below).  See you there.

    I hope our tactics are not to play for corners! I think we will find our two 6ft 4 players are good with their feet and not just in the air.

    Under 12? Golly, those Dutch kids mature early. Just think what size he’ll be when he finishes growing.

  11. Celtic management in pre season blinder.

     

    Well done to the backroom team for getting signings in early and giving the players time to settle in before the CL qualifiers.

     

    Paul can put a couple of hamsters out to graze as they won’t be needed to keep the server running on the last day of the window.

     

    F5 button will have a wee smilie on it as well.

    Morag has such attraction that she has her own gravitational pull. Almost as great as a black hole into which five stars have disappeared.

    Don’t let these jealous one-finger typing types typecast you as a typical podium chaser.

    Overheard in a Punta Secca [ where Montalbano lives ] bar this morning –

     

     

    Old Man Number 1 ——.

     

     

    ” Did you watch Spain v Tahiti last night ? ”

     

     

    Old Man Number 2 ——-

     

     

    ” I wanted to but fell asleep after the first goal —-when I woke up it took me a while to realize I was watching Nigeria v Uruguay “
