Celtic signed Kazim-Richards from Dutch giants Feyenoord in the January transfer window.
Warnock worked with the Turkey international striker at Sheffield United, and he has backed the 29-year-old to be a success at Celtic Park.
“He couldn’t have picked a better club to go to than Celtic,” Warnock told The Scottish Sun about Kazim-Richards. “Playing for a team who have a lot of the ball and attack all the time? That will be perfect for him.
“He’s got a lot going for him and he’ll bring a lot to Celtic. He’s very decent in the air, he goes straight at people, he can play up front or wide — he’s pretty versatile that way.”
Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 55 points from 24 matches.
