Celtic have made third acquisition of the January transfer window and signed Colin Kazim-Richards from Feyenoord.

Kazim-Richards move to Celtic was confirmed by Celtic’s official website on a two-and-a-half-year-deal.

The 29-year-old striker has fallen out of favour with the Dutch side after he was suspended for two weeks for threatening a journalist.

In his career the Turkish international striker has scored 54 senior career goals in 406 appearances for both club and country.

During his career he has played for 10 clubs and has struggled to hold down a regular place due to his attitude and work ethic towards fellow team-mates and coaches.

His current spell has been his best to date in his 11-year career – but he has only scored 14 times in 49 appearances for the Rotterdam club.

Having been in Glasgow for talks several days ago, the Turk will hope to be a complimentary option to Leigh Griffiths, as Nadir Ciftci and Carlton Cole have failed to do that so far.

Erik Sviatchenko and Patrick Roberts have already joined the Hoops this window as Ronny Deila turns his attention to a league and cup double after yesterday’s disappointment.

However, this signing will do little to help Deila’s hopes of being seen as the man to take Celtic forward by many fans.
