CELTIC have confirmed the biggest single amount of money they have ever received for a player by announcing it to the London Stock exchange.
A similar letter was released last year when Moussa Dembele left the club for a record-breaking fee to Lyon.
The letter is interesting as it shows Celtic did not have to wait for any single fee to be paid at a later date and states they received the fee of £25m in a ‘single amount’.
There was speculation about what exactly was being paid up front but this ends any talk. Arsenal’s second bid was said to be round the £25m mark but came with too many add-ons to take it to that figure.
Kieran is now the most expensive player in Scottish football history as well as Celtic’s.
It’s been a hard adjustment for Celtic fans to see the defender in another club’s colours. This is the man who once famously was spotted in Tenerife wearing his Hoops.
We wish Kieran all the best and hope his transfer cash gets put to good use!
