Celtic are excited to announce that former captain Chris Smalley has re-joined the club following a short break.

Chris originally joined Celtic from Stockport County in October 2018 and went on to make 27 apps last season for the club being named Celtic’s Players’ Player of the season.

After taking a break for personal reasons, Chris is now back and will be available for Tuesday’s fixture against Grantham.

His first two clubs were Chorley where he spent four years between 2008-2012 and then Clitheroe where he made over 100 apps.

Chris has also featured for Salford City, Kendal Town and Northwich Victoria.

Manager Simon Haworth was pleased to add Chris to his squad for the remainder of the season, he said:” Chris is one of the best centre backs in the league.

“We don’t want to go on a whim and sign players for the sake of it which is perhaps what happened last season, but with both Chris and Darius Osei signing for us, we know what we are getting and we know they are going to improve us.”

Chris can be found on Twitter @Chr1sSm4lley.
