Celtic complete Dublin swoop

31 January 2006 04:44

GLASGOW, Jan 31 (SW) – Glasgow Celtic have signed a replacement for Chris Sutton in fellow veteran forward Dion Dublin.

Like his English compatriot Dublin can also slot in to the centre of defence when needed and manager Gordan Strachan will no doubt be delighted to have replaced Sutton with a ‘like for like’ replacement.

A club statement was released, saying:

“Celtic have today completed the signing of Dion Dublin from Leicester City.

“The player, who can play in a number of positions, has signed until the end of this season.

“Dublin played under Gordon Strachan at Coventry City, where he was also a teammate of Paul Telfer's, and he is delighted to be joining a club of Celtic's stature.”

The former Aston Villa and Coventry player’s contract was cancelled at Leicester City, only for Celtic to make their interest known a few hours later.

The player himself admitted that the move is somewhat of a shock to him.

“I am surprised myself - it was a real shock to me as well,” admitted Dublin.

“But it was an unbelievable experience for me to get the phone call asking if I fancied it.

“What are you going to say? When you get to play for Celtic, it is an incredible experience.

“Although I am 36, I feel fit and I am ready to go. I'm just happy to get the chance.

“I have no injuries and feel good - touch wood. It is an exciting time for me.”
