EX-CELTIC flop Marvin Compper has admitted that he didn't fit in at Parkhead after he finally ended his disastrous spell to return to Germany.

Brendan Rodgers snapped up Compper from RB Leipzig in a £1million deal in January last year, but the defender made just one appearance for the treble treble winners.

He's now back home with German third tier outfit Duisburg.

And he's revealed his disappointment with the way he was treated during his time in Scotland.

Compper said: "Basically, I did not fit at Celtic. I was told very early on that I wasn't in their plans. That was a pity for me.

"But I kept on training and being professional. I still wanted to contribute and the way I did that was to pass on my experience to the younger players.

"I was under contract with Celtic until 2020 and I could have stayed and not played, but I didn't want to do that. I would have been 35 by the time I left and I would have found it hard to find another club.

"I wanted to sign for a club where I could play football again. I wanted a club who needed my experience. I've seen and experienced a lot in my career. I want to be a role model to the young players here. I've played in four different European leagues and for my country.

"My body still works well and I did actually get to play a couple of reserve games at Celtic, so I know I am fit enough and injury free. I'm really excited about being able to play again. And I haven't cut all my ties with Glasgow...I still have a subscription for Celtic TV!"
