Celtic complete signing of Melbourne City forward Tilio

Celtic have announced the signing of Marco Tilio on a five-year deal subject to international clearance.

The 21-year-old attacking winger signs from A-League champions Melbourne City, who he joined in 2020 from hometown club Sydney FC.

The striker told Celtic TV: "I'm ecstatic that I'm coming over to Europe, coming to such a big club and team, and I'm super-excited."

"I hope to bring all my qualities, take on players in and around the box, help the team contribute to goals with assists and hopefully put a few in the back of the net as well.

"It's an amazing opportunity for myself and having seen Aussies go over there and do well at such a prestigious club, it's a massive opportunity for myself that I couldn't deny.

"And being around those guys, Aaron Mooy and Tommy Rogic, in the national team camp over recent years, obviously helped make my decision easier."
