Celtic confirm signing of Daniel Arzani

Daniel Arzani of Australia takes on Pedro Aquino of Peru during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group C match between Australia and Peru at Fisht Stadium

The Iran-born attacker will link up with compatriot Tom Rogic at the Glasgow club.

Appearing in all three of his nation's group stage matches against France, Denmark, and Peru, Arzani became the youngest Australian to appear in the World Cup.

He impressed en masse in his first minutes of the season for City against Wellington Phoenix in January, registering two assists and never looking back thereafter.

"We've had a couple of targets we haven't been able to get, but I've always had a very, very good relationship with the board and that's the same, even though some people will try to dismantle that", the manager told BT Sport.

Though Arzani was already impressed by what Celtic had to offer, a word from their No.10 and global teammate Tom Rogic further aided his decision-making process.

Forza Horizon 2 will be delisted at the end of September
The game, released in 2014, straddled the Xbox 360 and Xbox One era and launched simultaneously on both consoles. If you don't already own it, the game is now available for free through Games With Gold until September 15.

"Apparently, playing in front of the Celtic fans is absolutely incredible and I'm really excited about that". "But, for me, it's about coming here, doing the best that I can and helping the club as much as possible".

"I gave Tom a call and had a chat with him about the club and everything was positive", Arzani said. The scenes at the game are unbelievable, and I love it when the crowd gets behind me.

"I'm here for two seasons at least and my focus is to develop as a player".

Celtic's stormy passage ended with victory over Partick Thistle at Firhill to take their place in the Betfred Scottish League Cup, which will take place after Sunday's Kilmarnock v Rangers tie at Rugby Park.

Brendan Rodgers looked to rotate his squad for the clash after the disappointing Champions League exit to AEK Athens in midweek.
