ONE of Ronny Deila’s biggest ever Celtic flops, Nadir Ciftci has hit the goal trail with his new club in Turkey and helped them to the summit of the league in the process.

Ciftci signed a one-year deal with Genclerbirligi with the option of a further year should he impress.

The Turkish striker was let go by Celtic in the summer after spending most of his time at the club out on-loan to various clubs where he also failed to impress.

First the player was sent to Eskisehirspor in the January 2016 transfer window and under Brendan Rodgers, he had stints at Pogon Szczecin, Plymouth and Motherwell before being let go in the summer.

Since his Dundee United days the player has struggled big time but now it looks as if he has found a home with Genclerbirligi.

Ciftci has scored four goals in ten games for the club.

In hindsight, the former Dundee United man was never cut out to be a Celtic player but we wish him all the best.
