‘Wasn’t a Celtic striker’: Some fans respond as star moves on

It would be fair to say Patryk Klimala’s time at Celtic was underwhelming.

Arriving from Polish side Jagiellonia Białystok in January 2020 for around £3.5 million, the striker was expected to play his part in securing a historic tenth successive title this season.

Instead, he’s been limited to just three starts in what’s turned out to be a calamitous season for the Parkhead side.

Over the course of his Celtic career, the 22-year-old scored just three goals in 28 appearances.

His unsuccessful time in Glasgow ended on Thursday, when Celtic confirmed that he had secured a move to MLS side New York Red Bulls.

There were still over three years left on his Celtic contract when his departure was finalised.

These Celtic supporters have expressed their regret at how his spell at the club panned out.


In a statement on their official website, Celtic said: “Everyone at Celtic thanks Patryk for his contribution to the club and wishes him every success in the future.”

Celtic were saved from a 1-0 defeat against Aberdeen on Wednesday night when substitute Leigh Griffiths equalised deep into injury-time.
