Haggerty: Carl Starfelt fits the bill for Celtic

Carl Starfelt fits the bill for Celtic, according to The Celtic Way journalist Tony Haggerty.

The Sweden international has agreed a move to Celtic Park from Rubin Kazan, subject to international clearance, for a reported fee of £4m.

Starfelt made 31 appearances for Rubin Kazan last season, scoring three goals in the process, and has represented his national team on three occasions.

Tony Haggerty believes Starfelt is the calibre of player that new manager Ange Postacoglou wants in his team and is pleased with the experience Celtic’s new signing has, telling Football FanCast: “I think it’s the kind of calibre Postacoglou wants. 

“Starfelt fits the bill, you see he’s got Europa League experience also got some good experience in the Swedish League and the Russian League and he’s got some international experience to. If you put all that together that’s a player that could thrive in Scotland and Celtic have a successful track record of recruiting Swedish players.”

The Hoops have recruited four other players so far this summer, with Kyogo Furuhashi, Liel Abada, Liam Shaw and Osaze Urhoghide all arriving at Celtic Park.

Starfelt plays at centre-back and his arrival comes following the departure of Kristoffer Ajer, who left Celtic to join Premier League newcomers, Brentford, for an initial fee of £13.5m according to Sky Sports.
