Celtic fans react on Twitter to Nir Bitton signing new contract

Nir Bitton has committed his long-term future to Celtic.

Celtic fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on Nir Bitton signing a new contract.


The Israel international defensive midfielder has put pen to paper on a deal which will see him remain at Celtic Park until the summer of 2020.

Bitton has been on the books of the Bhoys since 2013, when he joined them from FC Ashdod.

The 24-year-old has established himself as one of the more important players for Celtic and is one of the first names on the teamsheet.

Initially Bitton struggled at the Scottish Premiership giants, but since the appointment of Ronny Deila as the club’s manager in the summer of 2014, he has been superb.

The Israeli has won two Scottish Premiership titles and a League Cup with Celtic so far.

Following the announcement of Bitton’s new contract, Celtic fans took to Twitter to have their say.
