Some Celtic fans have taken to social media to express their delight at the club’s latest signing.

Following the arrival of Christopher Jullien on Friday, the Hoops have made it two signings in two days as midfielder Luca Connell has joined the Hoops from Bolton on a four-year deal.

The announcement seems to have taken the Hoops support by surprise, but the support seem to be happy with the way the club is currently going about its business.

Indeed, one fan has urged the club to ‘keep going’ and presumably bring more players in.

Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to the news that Connell has joined the Hoops:

Judging by their work in the last 48 hours, Celtic are out to prove a point this summer.

Board seem committed to backing manager

Connell will now head to Austria to join his team-mates on a pre-season tour. It will be interesting to see if he features in Tuesday’s friendly against St Gallen.

The signing of Connell might not be as high-profile as the signing of Jullien. But it is still a sign that the Hoops seem to be willing to push the boat out in the transfer market this summer. Long may that continue.
