CELTIC have signed Alexandro Bernabei.

The defender has put pen to paper on a five-year contract at Parkhead subject to international clearance.

The 21-year-old joins the Scottish champions from Lanus in Argentina in a £3.75million deal.

It's been no secret that a move to Glasgow has been in the pipeline for some time. 

Last week he paid an emotional farewell to his Lanus teammates. 

The left-back was then spotted at Glasgow Airport having made the long-haul trip from South America.

Now, Bernabei has been confirmed - as Ange Postecoglou secures another addition to his squad this summer.

On the move, Bernabei commented: “I'm very happy to be here and I feel grateful to the club for giving me this opportunity.

“I feel proud to be playing in Europe because it was one of my dreams and I'm excited to train with and play with my new team-mates.

“The stadium is just incredible. The people, the club, team-mates, and the coaching staff are all incredible.

"I’m very excited and happy and I can’t wait to be playing in the Champions League. I've heard that the people are crazy, so I can't wait to sense that feeling and emotion in Celtic Park.”
