Celtic's Colin Kazim Richards celebrates at the end of the match

Colin Kazim-Richards has thanked Celtic on social media site Twitter, after completing a move to Coritiba yesterday.

Kazim-Richards only arrived at Parkhead last January, but his stay with the Glasgow side was a brief one.

The Turkish international did not do much to impress at Celtic, and he was quickly moved on by new Bhoys boss Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers wants to enhance Celtic’s strike force, and he deemed Kazim-Richards surplus to requirements.

Kazim-Richards was expected to provide competition to the likes of Leigh Griffiths at Celtic, but he did not show the best of his ability.

The 29-year-old scored just twice in 13 appearances for the Bhoys, and he only made four starts in the Scottish Premiership.

Kazim-Richards will now be hoping that his time at Coritiba is more successful, after he penned an 18-month deal with the Brazilian side.

Kazim-Richards is the second player to leave Celtic since Rodgers arrived, after Anthony Stokes departed earlier in the week.
