Bobby Petta gives stunned reaction on Twitter after Celtic sign Kazim-Richards


Bobby Petta is 'baffled' because Celtic signed Colin Kazim-Richards.

Celtic confirmed on their official website on deadline day that they have signed Colin Kazim-Richards - but Bobby Petta is 'baffled' by the move.

The Bhoys swooped to land defender Erik Sviatchenko from FC Midtjylland earlier in the transfer window, before signing Patrick Roberts on loan from Manchester City for 18 months.

Then, with just hours left of the window, Celtic confirmed they had snapped up striker Colin Kazim-Richards from Feyenoord on a two-and-a-half year deal.

The Turkish international, 29, had fallen out of favour with the Rotterdam club after the signing of Michiel Kramer over the summer, and is now looking to kickstart his career again in Glasgow.

He has international and Champions League experience in his locker, but some fans aren't quite so keen on the forward, who scored 16 goals in 50 appearances for Feyenoord.

The sceptical Bhoys fans have been joined by ex-Celtic ace Bobby Petta, who took to Twitter on deadline day to give his view on Kazim-Richards' arrival at Celtic Park.

Petta - born in Rotterdam and a former Feyenoord player - is familiar with Kazim-Richards as well as Celtic, and claimed he though it was April Fools' Day when the Bhoys announced the deal, stating he is 'baffled' by the move.

What do you think about Kazim-Richards' arrival at Celtic?
