Sam Wardrop has left Celtic for Dundee United in the summer transfer window.
Sam Wardrop has taken to social networking site Twitter to send a message to Celtic following his departure to Dundee United.
Wardrop has left Celtic to sign a two-year contract with Scottish Championship side United.
I am delighted to sign with Dundee Utd and looking forward to getting started in a few weeks time.— Sam Wardrop (@samwardrop1997) May 31, 2018
Thanks to everyone at Celtic FC for an incredible 9 year journey in the Academy…
And thanks to everyone at Dumbarton F.C. who gave me the opportunity to play. pic.twitter.com/eWCumbC3ya
Wardrop is a very talented and promising young right-back who can only get better at United.
The youngster captained Celtic to Youth Cup success at Hampden Park in Glasgow last April.
The 20-year-old, though, failed to make a single first-team appearance for the Hoops, and it made sense for him to try a new adventure.
United will be aiming to win automatic promotion from the Scottish Championship next season, and Wardrop will be an important player in Csaba Laszlo’s side.
As for Celtic, Brendan Rodgers’s side will be looking to win the domestic treble for the third season in a row.
