CELTIC flop Mubarak Wakaso has just signed for his ELEVENTH club after agreeing to join Chinese outfit Jiangsu Suning.

The winger was one of Ronny Deila’s first signings for the Hoops in the summer of 2014 when arrived on a season-long loan deal from Russian top-flight side Rubin Kazan.

Wakaso made a sensational start with a superb first-time strike in a 2-2 draw with Red Bull Salzburg in a Europa League group encounter in Austria, but went on to make only 10 more appearances for the Parkhead men.

And that was his only goal for the club as the speedy Ghanian very quickly came off the radar. He only managed five league outings for Celtic who became his sixth club when he was brought in by Deila.

Twenty-nine-year-old Wakaso has taken up his latest challenge after spending the last three years at La Liga outfit Alaves, where he scored only one goal.

As well as the Hoops, Ruben Kazan and Alaves, he has played for Ashanti Gold, Elche, Villarreal, Espanol, Las Palmas, Panathinaikos and Granada.

Wakaso has also played 67 times for his nation.

Back in March 2015, CQN reported: “Mubarak Wakaso will almost certainly be returned to his Russian club Rubin Kazan when his Celtic loan deal expires at the end of the season.

“However, the Ghana international midfielder is confident he will go out with a bang despite seeing little game time since his arrival in August.

“Wakaso, 24, made his first team comeback when he came on as a second-half substitute in the 1-0 loss to St Johnstone in midweek. It was his first appearance since his return to the SPFL champions after an impressive African Cup of Nations competition where he helped his nation to a second-place finish.

He said: “Football is strange. All you can do as a professional is to keep your head up and continue working hard.

“I am always ready to help the team in anyway and the coach knows that.

“There are a lot of games to be played and I am confident that I will contribute to help the team maintain the lead.”

“Wakaso had a whizzbang start to his Hoops move with a spectacular first-time drive in the 2-2 draw in Salzburg in the opening Europa League Cup-tie.

“However, injury and loss of form, plus his international duties, have seen him start only eight games.”
