CELTIC has confirmed tonight’s their new permanent striker Issouf Vakoun Bayo has touched down in Scotland BUT he still hasn’t been cleared to officially start his Celtic career but at least he’ll be in and training with the club.

Bayo was announced earlier this month but since signing for the bhoys he has had to wait to join his new teammates.
Brendan Rodgers believed international clearance would have come at the back end of last week but as there has been no official word yet, the club made sure to mention that in their social media tweet.
Once he begins training with the club it will only be a matter of time before the clearance comes through. Bayo hasn’t played any games since early December and has gotten married and been on honeymoon since.
The Celtic boss thinks it will take Bayo just a little bit of time to get up to speed before he makes a match day squad.
