23-year-old Jota said: “With the season that we had with all the winning and all the trophies, I think it was very good for everyone.” He also said: “It was a great experience. I already knew, more or less, how big Celtic was but I think people only realise once you are inside the club and the structure.” “I got to know the club from another perspective, and I just fell in love. So I think it’s a good time to be here and I just want to develop.”
The “player said: “I’m really happy to have joined Celtic and I just want to give some joy to the fans, to our team and conquer as many things as we can.” On Thursday, Celtic also announced the signing of Argentine defender Alexandro Bernabei, while the Scottish champions have also arranged a permanent deal for central defender Cameron Carter-Vickers and signed goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist.
