Bhoy Fridjonsson buzzing

ICELAND striker Holmbert Fridjonsson insists he did not have to think twice about pledging his future to Celtic.

The 20-year-old signed a pre-contract agreement with the Scottish champions on Wednesday and will officially join on a four-year deal when the transfer window opens on January 1.

He said: "I have seen them play in the Champions League while I was in Iceland so I know of some of the boys.

"Iceland shows every game in the Premier League and the Champions League and everybody watches football there so we can see Celtic.

"When Celtic came in, there was nothing to decide.

"I was buzzing when I heard of their interest and I was just really excited."

Fridjonsson had been playing with Fram in his native Iceland and, now their season is over, he is expected to join the Hoops for training in early December.

He has told new boss Neil Lennon he will be ready to be pitched into the action when he completes his move to Celtic in the new year.
