Celtic have finally unveiled Jusip Juranovic at Celtic Park.

The player was confirmed on Friday evening subject to international clearance and has finally stepped foot inside the stadium and pictured with the famous Hoops jersey.

The defender hasn’t gone for any normal number – the Croatian has been bold and took the number 88!

Gary Hooper previously wore the number and latterly Eboue Kouassi. A number celebrating the founding year of the club.

Juranovic will have to wait for his Celtic debut. The Croatian international is not eligible to play for the bhoys in Holland on Thursday. His jumping off point could be against Celtic’s city rival’s at Ibrox this Sunday.

I’m sure that won’t phase him if he does get called upon for the game. However, Anthony Ralston would feel hard done by if he lost his spot for the derby given the performances he’s put in.

Ralston could get the nod with Juranovic coming on later in the game.

The right back has been playing for Legia already this season and is match fit and ready to go.

Jusip spoke to the Celtic website today.

“Celtic are a big club and it was a big opportunity for me,” said the 26-year-old defender in an exclusive interview with Celtic TV. “I want to see myself on this stage and I want to give everything here.

“I’m a team player, I want to show my ability in defending, but also crossing, assisting, running, pushing, and giving everything to win the game.

“I’ve watched the games this season and the team look really good. I like the manager’s style of attacking football and the fact that every player plays in the opposing team’s half. I’m really looking forward to playing in this system.”
