During the preceding period in the build-up to Canadian World Cup star, Ally Johnston signing for Celtic, the defender joked that he would need a new phone as his old iPhone was blowing up with messages about his prospective move to Celtic Park. There was a melee of activity surrounding the 24-year-old after his performance against Belgium and then his links to Ange Postecoglou’s side.
Celtic have since went on to clinch the right-back on a five-year-contract, which was announced today. A mooted fee of around £3 million was the price Ange and Michael Nicholson paid to see him move to the Scottish Premiership in the New Year. The former CF Montreal man was clearly delighted and The Celtic Star reported about that ealeir on this afternoon.
But now the happy Canadian has taken to social media to confirm to the world that he does indeed need a new phone now because of the events of the last few days. Writing on Twitter, the versatile back-four operator said:
“Yep… it’s official. I’m going to need a new phone #CelticFC”
Yep… it’s official. I’m going to need a new phone 😂 #CelticFC
