Fran Alonso told The Celtic Star at his Media Conference on Friday that he was looking at bringing in a new player for the season run-in as Celtic chase a SWPL1 and Scottish Cup double and was hopeful that the signing would be announced ahead of the match at Broadwood Stadium against theRangers, who are the current SWPL1 Champions.
The deal had been agreed and was simply waiting on the paperwork – usually a visa – and that has now been sorted with new signing Kit Loferski going straight into the squad for the match under the lights at Cumbernauld, for the game which is live on Sky Sports.
