Photo: Shane Duffy arrives in Glasgow ahead of Celtic signing parade

CELTIC may have signed Shane Duffy last week but he is yet to complete the formalities of being pictured with the Celtic shirt and the scarf nor speaking to the club media outlets.

The 28-year-old fresh off captaining Ireland during the international break was pictured in Glasgow earlier today before he joins up with his new teammates.

There has been a fair amount of hype over signing the Irish defender not only because he was solid during his time for Brighton but also because he is a Celtic supporter.

Former Celtic star Mark McGhee said that the Irishman would know what it means to be with Neil Lennon’s side this season on what is a potentially historic season.

Speaking to the Scottish Sun, the former Celtic hero, who was part of the Centenary double-winning side in 1988, reckons that brining Duffy in will work wonders for Celtic as he loves the club and knows what it means to the fans.

“When the stakes are this big, history is there to be made and things get very tribal, it’s good to have players who know what it all means to the fans.

“That’s why Lenny will be delighted to get Shane here now, of all seasons.

“Like James Forrest and Callum McGregor, Shane knows the significance of the ten — he gets it in a way that Boli Bolingoli clearly doesn’t.”
