Hibs’ sensational response to Celtic’s record breaking transfer

Hibs have poked fun at the Al-Ittihad announcement of Jota from Celtic. The Saudi Arabian side signed Jota for a deal worth over £25m, making it a record export for a Scottish team and releasing a bizarre video announcing the deal.

The Easter Road side were quick to pick up on the possibilities presented by the utterly strange output from the Jeddah club, using an edited version to announce their signing of Dylan Levitt from Dundee United.

Well done to Hibs for their satirical take on the announcement, which replaced a number of Celtic forwards with Dundee United players. Mind you, after last season, Levitt would likely have been the only one to attract a fee.

In 83 appearances, Jota has scored 28 goals and assisted 26 times. The Celtic supporters adored the Portuguese star but the wages on offer were too lucrative to turn down. Many talented players have come to Celtic and moved on and the club have moved for their replacements, the Scottish Champions must do this now by finding a suitable replacement for Jota.

  1. A bit of fun nicely done. Celtic already have players at the club who given a run can fill his spot in Scotland, just bank the money and wait and develop the existing players while hand picking players rather than hoping for a great player.

    No club outside Celtic stands a chance of competing in the transfer market for now so anyone that can bring some fun to the table without it being hurtful or a dig is great.
