Michael Duffy CelticCeltic announce on Tuesday evening the signing of Irish forward Michael Duffy on a four-and-a-half year deal.

Speaking to Celtic TV, the Irishman admitted that he was elated to have joined his Bhoyhood heroes.

“It feels amazing. It’s like a dream come true,” he said. “I came over here on trial just before Christmas and spent eight days here and saw two matches that I’d never been to before. It was brilliant.

“I’m now going to work hard and try my best to make an appearance for the first-team and make the fans happy. This is the club I’ve always supported and this is huge for me.”
