Former Celt Adam Matthews joins Neil Lennon at Omonia Nicosia

Former Celtic right-back Adam Matthews has been re-united with his old Parkhead gaffer after today signing a two year contract to play for Cypriot side Omonia Nicosia, now of course managed by Neil Lennon.

Matthews was part of the Celtic side that defeated the legendary Barcelona side – at the peak of their powers – in November 2012 in a never to be forgotten night at Celtic Park. And Matthews will be back playing Europa League qualifiers for the Cyprus Cup winners very shortly.

At Celtic Matthews won four league winners medals, two Scottish cups and one League cup, making 150 appearances for Celtic and scoring five goals.

Matthews, now 30, leaves Charlton to head to the sunshine for a few years and he wish the former Wales international defender and Celtic star all the very best. Anthony Joseph at Sky Sports jokes Hooper and Stokes will be next as Lenny gets the 2012 gang back together.
