COLIN KAZIM-RICHARDS, or the Big Z, has managed to get himself a new club by joining Derby County. The 34-year-old spent six months with Celtic in 2016 after signing from Feyenoord and despite a cracking finish at Tynecastle as Celtic wrapped up 5IAR, he was a flop in Glasgow.
Despite an extensive list of clubs, of which some are big clubs, Kazim-Richards has only scored 58 goals in 388 appearances. However, his agent has managed to get Championship side Derby County to sign him on a free transfer after he left Mexico, proving he is world class.

Kazim-Richards was signed with little fanfare from Feyenoord on January 31 2016 as backup to Leigh Griffiths as other backup strikers Carlton Cole and Nadir Çiftçi.
The striker made his debut with Celtic 2-0 down at half-time against Aberdeen. The then 29-year-old had little contribution in his debut apart from receiving a yellow card. Apart from the memorable goal v Hearts, it is easy to forget that he got a goal in the Scottish Cup against East Kilbride – bundling the ball over the line.
Although, on the whole, his performances left an awful lot to be desired and explain why he has had five clubs in five years.
