Celtic star Nir Bitton has introduced a new face to the world as his family welcome a baby boy. 

The midfielder from Israel was seen in a snap shared on social media holding the new little bundle of joy.

The Hoops told their fans of the baby joy on Twitter alongside the caption which mirrored that of the Celtic Ace.

He said: "Little brother to our princess Emma...welcome to the world little man."

Celtic also congratulated their player, writing: "Congratulations on your new arrival, Nir!"

Fans have also jumped in with messages of congratulations.

One wrote: "A little prince, congratulations Nir."

Another added: "Congratulations Nir and family."

As reported by the Evening Times, earlier this year, Nir Bitton was added to Celtic’s extensive list of casualties after Brendan Rodgers revealed that the Hoops midfielder’s season was over.
