New Celtic defender Alistair Johnston has declared he will need a new phone after moving to Celtic.

The player joked during the World Cup that his phone nearly melted when the interest from Celtic became public, and now he 100% needs a new phone after the deal was confirmed on Saturday afternoon.

The Canadian is currently out in Italy, enjoying a break after playing at the World Cup with his country.

After his short break, the former Montreal man will head to meet his new teammates. It’s uncertain if Alistair will fly into Portugal to join up with the bhoys or wait until they’re back in Glasgow.
