Former Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic looks like he’s finally closing in on a new club after being released by Celtic back in May.

At the time, it came as a shock because Celtic had previously billed Jozo’s contract as a four-year deal which meant he would still have a year left. In fact, the club had signed him to a three-year deal with an option of a fourth which they chose not to pick up.

The pandemic has meant a lot of upheaval for Celtic and many other clubs and players they might have held onto under different circumstances were let go.

Jozo had an up and down Celtic career, some magical moments and some performances the Croatian would rather forget.

The Kenny Miller tackle and the goal for Billy McNeill stand out as his two top moments in the green and white hoops, the iconic tackle is something which will be replayed for years.

The defender looks set to continue his career with Croatian side Rijeka according to SunSport, and we can’t do anything but wish big Jozo all the best for the future.

Celtic shelled out a large fee for Jozo back in the day, Transfermarkt has the fee at £6.75m, our understanding is it was below this amount.
