Celtic have completed the signing of Nigerian international Efe Ambrose.
The defender has put pen to paper on a three-year deal after spending two years with FC Ashdod in Israel.
Neil Lennon had been keen to strengthen his squad after qualifying for the UEFA Champions League, and Ambrose could provide options at either right-back or in central defence.
"Today is one of the happiest days of my life, signing for one of the biggest clubs in the world - a club I have known about since I was young," Ambrose told Celtic's official website.
"I just can't wait to get started, to play in front of the fans and call this place home."
Celtic face a daunting task in the Champions League, but it is one that their new signing is relishing.
"I have come here to find we are in the same group as Barcelona, Benfica and
Spartak Moscow," Ambrose added.
"It's a lovely group, you might call it the group of death and it will be hard, but hard work always pays.
"I am just looking forward to meeting my team-mates now, there is no better place for me than Scotland."
