Ex-Cliftonville goalkeeper Conor Hazard signs four year deal with Celtic

Ex-Cliftonville goalkeeper Conor Hazard has signed a four-deal deal with Scottish Premiership champions Celtic.

The 19-year-old Co Down man signed the contract alongside chief executive, Peter Lawwell.

Speakingto Celtic TV, Conor Hazard said: “It feels amazing and it’s a great honour for me. It’s a boyhood dream come true and it still has to sink in.

“It feels unreal and it’s special to have my family over to see me signing.

"They have obviously been with me from the beginning. My Mum and Dad drove me everywhere and there has always been that football competition between my brother and I in the back garden.

“I wouldn’t have been able to do without all the coaches I have worked with. I have had great help from Colin Meldrum and Stevie Woods who have really developed me over the past three years and hopefully there is more to come."
