Celtic new signing Efrain Juarez poses for the media following a press conference at Celtic Park, Glasgow.

Juarez, a midfielder who can also play at full-back (or vice versa – Celtic will probably use him foremost at the back), could play a part in Wednesday’s Champions League qualifier against Braga in Portugal, having received his work permit a few days ago.

This is a useful signing for the Hoops.

“I didn’t have to think twice,” Juarez told BBC Scotland about his choice of new club. “I remember the [1983 Uefa Cup] final against Porto in Sevilla.

“They are amazing fans – 70,000 fans went to Sevilla. Only a few clubs would have this kind of support follow them.”

Aw, you say all the right things, Efrain. A good start.
