Celtic attacker posts cryptic Instagram message (not Dembele)

By Harvey Byrne

In a week where Celtic star Moussa Dembele caught the headlines with a message on social media teammate Nadir Ciftci has now rivalled him with his own.

It is no secret that the 25-year-old Turkish national is someway behind Dembele and Leigh Griffiths in the striker pecking order after failing to impress Brendan Rodgers in the last campaign.

The attacker also spent the second half of the last season on loan at Polish club Pogon Szczecin, where he failed the find the back of the net in 10 appearances.

Now, with the summer window fast approaching Ciftci has also caught the attention on social media with an image on his official Instagram account simply captioned by an egg timer emoji, symbolising that he is waiting for something.

Ciftci has failed to make an impact at Celtic after moving from Dundee United in the summer of 2015 for a fee of £1.5million after starring for the Tangerines.

He has since played just 26 times for the Hoops in total, scoring on four occasions and is going into the final two years of his contract.

In other Celtic news, the Hoops are hoping to seal deal for this assist expert in the next 48 hours.
