Colin Kazim-Richards seems absolutely over the moon to sign for Celtic.

As we told you earlier on tonight, the Turkish international has moved to Parkhead on two-and-a-half year deal after leaving Dutch side Feyenoord, and will go straight into the Hoops squad for the trip to Aberdeen on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old has been around the block both in the UK and on the continent, having played for nine teams in four different countries during a varied career.

But despite his much-stamped passport, Kazim-Richards insists that the opportunity to sign for Celtic was something that he simply couldn’t turn down, and even claims he planned to never return to the UK.

What do you think of his arrival? Will he be a hit in Glasgow?
