Report: Celtic's Nadir Ciftci set for Polish loan move

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers celebrates with Nadir Ciftci at the end of the match

The Turkish striker has played just 43 minutes of football for Brendan Rodgers' Bhoys following his return to Celtic Park last summer.

Saturday's outing against Inverness Caledonian Thistle looks to be Nadir Ciftci's last of the campaign in Celtic colours.

According to the Scottish Sun, the Turkish striker is set to join Polish side Pogon Szczecin on loan - despite coming off the bench in each of the Bhoys' last two fixtures.

However, with Leigh Griffiths edging back to full fitness, Ciftci's services are no longer required it seems.

The 25-year-old was brought to Celtic Park by previous boss Ronny Deila 18 months ago, but was loaned to Eskisehirspor after just half a season under the Norwegian.

Since his return to Glasgow last summer, Ciftci has found first-team opportunities limited under Brendan Rodgers, with his four appearances totalling just 43 minutes.

The £1.5 million recruit reportedly saw a move to Motherwell collapse on deadline day, but with Poland's transfer window still open, Ciftci has seemingly been offered a lifeline.

In total, the former Portsmouth player has appeared 26 times for Celtic, scoring four goals and creating another.

Are Celtic taking a risk by loaning out Ciftci?
