“Fireball will be always close to my heart,” Josip Juranovic posts farewell message

Josip Juranovic posted his farewell message to everyone at Celtic this evening following his transfer to Union Berlin was completed this morning. The Croatian World Cup star spent a hugely successful 18 months in Glasgow, helped Celtic to win the Scottish Premiership and the League Cup and has helped Celtic establish a nine point lead at the top of the league this season as well as reaching the League Cup final next month.

He also played in the Europa League last season and the Champions League in this campaign and the personal highlight was of course his World Cup success with Croatia. His move today was widely anticipated and allows Josip to fulfil his ambitions of playing in one of the top leagues in Europe.

It’s fair to say that Juranovic loved his time at Celtic and he leaves with all our best wishes.

He posted this on his Instagram account earlier this evening:

“What can I say? What a memorable 18 months. My family and I will always remember every part of that journey. Thank you for making this a special time for us. Sharing the dressing room with so many amazing teammates in this short period of time was an unforgettable experience! It was my pleasure working with the manager, coaches and staff members. Big thanks to the fans. Each and every one of you made me feel special. Fireball will be always close to my heart! Glasgow will always be GREEN AND WHITE! Once a CELT, always a CELT,” Josip Juranovic posted.
