Celtic have officially completed the £3.5m signing of Patryk Klimala on a four-and-a-half year deal.

The Poland U21 striker is the club’s first signing of the January window and fans will naturally be intrigued by how heavily he can contribute in the final months of the season.

Shortly after the deal was confirmed, Klimala took to Instagram to announce the transfer to his social media following, with a grinning Peter Lawwell pictured alongside him.
