ALEXANDRO BERNABEI is raring to go after signing a five-year deal at Celtic.

The Argentine youth international completed a transfer from Lanus this morning and was officially announced by the Parkhead club.

The left-back agreed a move to Glasgow as part of a £3.75million transfer deal with Lanus confirming his move in the early hours.

And now, Celtic have released quotes from Bernabei's first interview as a Celtic player, with the 21-year-old overwhelmed by Parkhead.

Giving his reaction to finalising the move and his "incredible" new surroundings, Bernabei told the club website: “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.”

Bernabei has not yet trained under Ange Postecoglou or alongside his new team-mates - but he has held talks with his new manager.

And Bernabei insists Postecoglou reckons he can fit the Celtic style without much time to adjust - as he aims to become a champion in Glasgow.

Recalling a discussion with the Celtic boss, Bernabei added: “I spoke to the manager and he said he believed in me and my quality and that I can adapt to the team quickly.

“This is my first time in Scotland and Glasgow and I’ve seen the city on the internet and it looks very beautiful, so I’m excited to be able to get to know it more.

“The objective is to become champion and we want to achieve big things as a club and I would like to achieve all of our objectives this year.”
