Nir Bitton has signed a new three-and-a-half year deal with Celtic, and a number of supporters have praised the news.

The 28-year-old’s contract was set to expire at the end of the season, and there had been some speculation that a January move was on the cards.

However the new deal was confirmed on Monday afternoon, and these Celtic fans are very pleased with the news.
