Celtic today announced that captain Kelly Clark will remain in the Hoops after she signed a new three-year deal which will see her stay at the club until 2026.
The 28-year-old, who signed back in 2013, has made over 250 appearances for the club and she has been a huge figure for the Celts during a historic time for the team, and has on gone on to become club captain.
She has been an integral part of some of the Ghirls’ biggest moments, including Celtic FC Women’s first ever outing in the UEFA Women’s Champions League in 2021.
That same season, the defender also captained Fran Alonso’s squad to a domestic cup double, lifting her first pieces of silverware as a Celtic player.
She followed up that success last season by leading the squad out at Celtic Park in front of record-breaking crowds for the women’s game in Scotland, before securing a second Scottish Cup triumph with victory over theRangers at Hampden in May.
This season, Kelly Clark and the Celtic FC Women’s squad will be aiming to create more history as they get set for the 2023/24 campaign, which will once again include UEFA Champions League football.
The journey continues! Captain Kelly Clark has signed a new three-year deal with the Club 💚✍️

Things you love to see. Not sure we’d know what to do without Kelly in the team? Keeps some continuity in the defence and of course incredible leadership in the squad.
