Celtic forward Mikey Johnston has issued a heartfelt farewell to West Bromwich Albion, as the English Championship club confirm his return to Glasgow.

Johnston was sent out on loan during the January transfer window, after failing to secure a regular first-team place in Brendan Rodgers' starting 11 in the first half of the 2023/24 Scottish Premiership campaign.

In 20 appearances down south, the forward netted seven goals, however he and his teammates' contributions over the course were not enough to ensure promotion to England's top flight for The Hawthorns side. 

Now, the 25-year-old has thanked the Championship club and their support on his Instagram page.

"I wish it could’ve finished differently but still such a happy period of my career," said Johnston. "An amazing club with such good people. Thank you for everything [West Bromwich Albion] and to the fans for the unbelievable support you’ve given myself and the team all season."

At the same time, West Brom's official website commended Johnston's "positive impact" at The Hawthorns – a sentiment echoed on the club's own Instagram page.
