Celtic confirm Ally Johnston signing on a five year contract

Celtic today confirmed the signing of Canadian internationalist Alistair Johnston on five-year deal.

Johnston joins the club on a five-year deal from MLS side, CF Montreal.

The 24-year-old Canadian internationalist, who recently played for Canada in their three World Cup group games at the tournament in Qatar, will meet up with his new team-mates at the end of next week.

After a season with Nashville SC, Alistair joined CF Montreal in December last year, making 39 appearances and scoring four goals. He has also been capped 33 times by Canada, scoring one goal.

Ange Postecoglou said: “I’m delighted. He’s someone we identified pretty early on as somebody we think can add to our club

“He’s had an interesting career path where he’s had to work very hard to get to where he is, and we’re very happy to conclude the deal and knowing he was going to the World Cup, I think he performed well there as well.

“He’s really keen to come across and take the next step in his career, and I think he’ll be a great fit in our dressing-room, and he’ll definitely add something to our football as well.

“He’s predominantly played on the right side of defence, at centre-back or right-back. He’s very good technically, very good going forward and also a really strong competitor and he doesn’t mind the physical aspects of the game, and as I said, I think he’ll add something to our club.”

Welcome to Celtic, Ally!
