FILIP BENKOVIC confirmed via social media that there would be no Celtic return this summer after his loan expired at the end of last season.
The player thanked Celtic and their support during a great season where he was part of the treble treble winning side.
Celtic players commented under the post, and Kieran Tierney who had struck up a good friendship with his fellow defender sent him a great response.
“Good luck my man…no pyro, no party.” Kieran replied.
The Croatian is now looking to kick in for Leicester under former boss Brendan Rodgers while Kieran himself has been the subject of intense speculation with his own move to the Premier League.
Benkovic was a hit at Celtic Park with many wanting him to return for another season at least but those hopes have been dashed. Celtic brought in Christopher Jullien this summer and will be a direct replacement for the powerful defender
