Celtic have completed the signing of Mexican international Efrain Juarez, who joins the club on a four-year deal, according to the club‘s official website.

The 22-year-old, who starred for his country at the recent World Cup tournament in South Africa, becomes the latest recruit to join the Hoops and will be officially unveiled this afternoon at a Celtic Park press conference at 2.30pm.

Manager Neil Lennon has already brought in a number of new players – Charlie Mulgrew, Cha Du-Ri, Joe Ledley, Daryl Murphy and now Juarez – as Celtic gear up for the season ahead, which begins with the UEFA Champions League qualifier against Portuguese side Braga this Wednesday.
