Haggerty: Juranovic comes to Celtic with decent pedigree

The Celtic Way journalist Tony Haggerty believes that new signing Josip Juranovic comes into Celtic with decent pedigree.

The 26-year-old joined Celtic from Legia Warsaw last month and after receiving international clearance, he signed a five-year deal at Paradise.

The Croatia international featured twice for his national team at Euro 2020 against both Scotland and Spain. Juranovic operates as a right-back but has also pushed further forward into a right-midfield position, as well as featuring as a centre-back and left-midfielder on occasion.

Juranovic has already featured nine times for Legia Warsaw in all competitions this season, scoring one goal and providing two assists, and Haggerty believes that he comes to Celtic with a decent pedigree.

“He’s come in with, as you say, a decent pedigree and you know, the right back position for Celtic has been a problematic position for a long, long time. So, Ange and the management team have identified somebody who they believe can fill that space,” Haggerty told Football FanCast.

Juranovic was the eighth summer signing at Celtic Park after Osaze Urhoghide, Liel Abada, Liam Shaw, James McCarthy, Joe Hart, Kyogo Furuhashi, Carl Starfelt, before the Hoops completed their summer business by bringing in Liam Scales, Giorgos Giakoumakis, Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers.
