Nadir Ciftci hasn’t had many highlights from his time at Celtic – but this nutmeg on Jozo Simunovic is definitely something to remember.

The Turkish striker signed for the Hoops at the start of last season in a £1.5million move from Dundee United.

But he was unable to make an impact in the first half of the 2015/16 campaign before being sent out on loan to Eskişehirspor until the end of the season.

Ciftci has been back at Celtic since the summer, but hasn’t been able to force his way into a regular squad spot, with Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths being Brendan Rodgers’ first choice strikers.

Instead, he’s had to settle for a lot of training – and that’s where one of his few highlights has came from.

During some possession boxes at training this week, Ciftci brilliantly nutmegged team-mate Simunovic, much to the delight of the rest of the players.

And luckily cameras were rolling on the session – allowing Ciftci to post this footage to Instagram:

How good is that? It actually reminds us of this superb nutmeg from Juan Mata in Spain training years ago:

That’s a highlight Ciftci can be proud of.
