Video: Giakoumakis’ Celtic best bits as striker departs for MLS

Celtic confirmed the sale of Giorgos Giakoumakis to MLS side Atlanta United earlier today as the 28-year-old leaves the club for the USA. The deal, worth £4.3m, sees the Greek striker depart the club after a season and a half with 26 goals to his name.

Everything Celtic on Twitter shared a video that featured some of the big striker’s best moments in a Celtic jersey. However, there were a fair few omitted…

After joining for £2m in the summer of 2021, Giakoumakis has impressed. Last season he was the SPFL’s top goalscorer with the season before that, the striker earning the same accolade in the Netherlands. In 57 appearances since moving from VVV-Venlo, Giakoumakis has scored 26 goals as well as assisting twice. His numbers are impressive and they have been slightly skewed due to his substitute appearances coming late in the game. The player was a major factor in securing the league title last year and he leaves with the best wishes of everyone.
