Colin Kazim-Richards reacts on Twitter after completing deadline day move to Celtic

Celtic Shirt Stands

Feyenoord striker Colin Kazim-Richards has signed for Celtic today.

Celtic's new signing Colin Kazim-Richards has taken to Twitter, as seen above, to react after completing his move to Glasgow this evening.

Kazim-Richards, 29, will be familiar to some fans having turned out for the likes of Bury, Brighton, Sheffield United and Blackburn in English football, whilst he has also played for major European clubs such as Fenerbahce, Toulouse, Galatasaray, Olympiacos and most recently, Feyenoord.

Even after hitting 16 goals in 50 games for the Dutch side, Kazim-Richards has been allowed to leave Rotterdam following an altercation with a journalist, as reported by The Guardian.

It's Celtic who have decided to rescue Kazim-Richards, and have snapped him up on a two-and-a-half year contract this evening, giving their attack a major boost.

The Turkish international will now compete with Carlton Cole and Leigh Griffiths for a place up front following Nadir Ciftci's departure to Eskisehirspor.

After completing his move to Celtic Park, the London-born striker took to Twitter, stating that it's a 'new chapter' for him at Cetlci after something of a sour exit from Feyenoord.

It's unlikely that Kazim-Richards will have clearance to play in Wednesday's big game against Aberdeen, but he could be in contention for a role in the Scottish Cup against East Kilbride on Saturday, if manager Ronny Deila feels he is fit enough.

What do you think of Kazim-Richards' arrival in Glasgow?
