Breaking News…Celtic midfielder signs new four-years deal with the club

Just a few days after joining, the Danish Under-21 international player made his Tynecastle debut in a 2-1 victory over Hearts.

Matt O’Riley, a midfielder for Celtic, has agreed to a new four-year contract that will keep him with the team through 2027.

The 22-year-old has signed new contracts recently since Brendan Rodgers’ return to the team, joining Hatate, Callum McGregor, Liel Abada, Kyogo, Daizen Maeda, and Anthony Ralston.

Just a few days after joining Celtic from MK Dons in January 2022, the Danish Under-21 international made his Tynecastle debut in a 2-1 victory over


He went on to play for Celtic for 80 times, scoring 12 goals.

“It’s probably hard to put it into a short sentence, but I think everybody knows how much I enjoy playing here, especially at Celtic Park because I don’t think you get that anywhere else,” he stated in a statement to Celtic TV.

“I honestly can’t put into words how much I love playing football here. Feeling like a member of the football family is incredibly fantastic.

In terms of everything we do on and off the field, in terms of community work and charities, etc., I believe that’s really uncommon. It’s great to be a part of something so special, in my opinion.

“I believe it’s critical to enjoy your teammates’ company at training every day, to be able to joke together, and to push one another as well.

We currently have a really excellent combination of youth and experience, which naturally makes it simpler to demand high standards from one another if you have a solid connection off the field.

“We have a young team, and even though I’m still young, I’m probably in the middle of that, but that dynamic and balance is really helpful.”

We are extremely happy that Matt and the club have agreed to this new contract, according to Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers.

“Matt is playing some wonderful football and improving in every facet of his game, as we have seen from previous weeks, and this is a great time for him right now.

Matt has so much to his game but always wants to learn, develop and grow further and from that perspective, together with the inherent talent he has, he really is a joy to coach and work with.

I’m thrilled that he has agreed to a new contract, and I know he will continue to give greatly to the club in the future.
