When Celtic signed Colin Kazim-Richards from Feyenoord on a two-and-a-half-year deal in February it was a move that surprised many.

In the end, it was a short-lived and unmemorable experience for the Turkish international.

He managed just two goals in 13 appearances for The Bhoys and failed to impress on a consistent basis at Parkhead.

Just four months after joining Celtic he started to get the wheels in motion for another shock move, heading to Brazil to play for Coritiba.

While he will not go down in Celtic folklore the Turkish star might have just done so at the Brazilian club – after scoring on his debut for the club.

He posted this video of the goal on his official Twitter account earlier today:


The striker came on for his debut in Parana debut against Atletico Parananense yesterday evening, before heading home what proved the winner for the struggling Brazilian Serie A side.

It was certainly a more immediate impact then he made at Celtic and the Brazilian side will now be thinking they got their hands on a bargain.

However, Celtic fans will probably still prefer their recent signing Moussa Dembele.
