Celtic striker Nadir Ciftci has joined Plymouth Argyle on loan until the end of the season.
The versatile forward, who can also play on either wing, only made one Premiership appearance for Celtic last season, before joining Pogon Szczecin on loan.
He made 10 appearances for the Polish side but hasn’t been deemed part of Brendan Rodger’s plans on his return.
The 25-year-old former Turkish Under-19 striker will now try his luck in the English League One as he looks to attract a permanent club or force his way into Rodgers’ thinking.
The news was announced on the official Celtic Twitter page on Monday

This follows a report in the Scottish Sun that claimed he would go out on loan to make way for the return of Manchester City’s Patrick Roberts.
Ciftci joined Celtic two years ago for a fee of nearly £2million from Dundee United but has been a flop so far in Glasgow.
This will be his third loan move in two years and it’s looking increasingly unlikely that he has a future in the senior team at Celtic.
Fans will now be hoping that Manchester City’s Patrick Roberts makes his loan return to Celtic.
