Celtic sign Viking raider Rasmussen

26 January 2010 14:10

GLASGOW (AFP) - Celtic have signed Danish target man Morten Rasmussen from Brondby, the Scottish club announced on Tuesday.

Rasmussen, who has won three caps for Denmark, turns 25 on Sunday and has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract at Celtic Park following a transfer that reportedly cost Celtic more than one million pounds.

The 1.85m (6'1) forward scored 52 goals in 111 games for Brondby after signing for the club from AGF Aarhus in 2006, and he is hoping to book a place in Denmark's World Cup squad by catching the eye in Scotland.

"It would be a dream for me to play in the World Cup and I will work hard to do well at Celtic and then maybe I will be able to go to South Africa," he said.

Nicknamed 'Duncan' because of a similarity to former Rangers, Everton and Scotland forward Duncan Ferguson, Rasmussen is convinced he can make an impact in Scotland.

"I am a striker, I am strong in the box and that is where I score most of my goals," he said. "I also fight hard for the team and I am good at holding the ball up."

Rasmussen added: "I started at Aarhus, before going to Brondby, which was a bigger club, so moving to Celtic is another big step up for me.

"I am looking forward to my new career here. I hope to play a lot of football, score a lot of goals and that the team can win every competition that we are involved in."

Rasmussen is Celtic manager Tony Mowbray's fourth signing of the January transfer window, following South Korean midfielder Ki Sung Yueng, Dutch defender Jos Hooiveld and Norwegian defender Thomas Rogne.
