Patryk Klimala has penned an emotional farewell to Celtic after his move to New York Red Bulls was confirmed yesterday.

The striker signed with the MLS outfit and the Hoops are understood to have recouped the £3.5million fee they paid for the Poland Under-21 international.

Writing on Twitter, Klimala said: "As you probably already know, my time in Celtic is over.

"The time I spent here, however short, was a gift from God to me. I would like to thank everyone who has given me the chance to be apart of this great club.

"I will never forget a warm welcome and the support the fans gave me during the year spent here.

"In Celtic I was lucky to meet really good players, coaches and people who mobilized me to work harder every day.

"The progress I have made here allows me to be optimistic about the future.

"Now it's time for the United States, I'm pretty excited about it.

"Thank you for all the message and calls. Hope Celtic gets the title back as soon as possible.

"I keep my fingers crossed for you!"

The 22-year-old striker joined Celtic from Jagiellonia in January 2020 and scored three goals in 28 appearances, all but five coming off the bench.
