Celtic have signed striker Patryk Klimala on a four-and-a-half year contract from Polish top flight side Jagiellonia Białystok.
The 21-year-ol hitman has plundered seven goals from 17 league appearances so far this season and will undertake his first training session with his new team-mates tomorrow.
He told the club’s official Twitter account: “It’s a big moment, I’m very excited to be here at such a massive club. The last 24 hours were intense. I was waiting for the decision and to meet the people around the club.
“The atmosphere around the stadium is amazing, I’ve heard it before. I’m pleased everything is finished now.”
But Celtic decided to make the announcement first of all on their Tik Tok account, putting the striker in their first video on the social media network.

That did not go down especially well with supporters, as football drifts further and further away from the traditionalists.
It may impress younger fans, but there were plenty on Twitter who did not like the way the signing was announced.
One questioned whether the striker has enough experience to help the push towards yet another title, but the majority of the reaction related to the manner of the announcement.
I can’t believe you’ve announced him like this pic.twitter.com/2wvHKSPbKt

Good plan this from the board, start announcing signings through TiK ToK and eventually we won’t want to see more names coming in.
