Hibernian completed the signing of Republic of Ireland striker Anthony Stokes on loan from Celtic until the end of the season.
Still on Celtic, defender Erik Sviatchenko has signed for the Hoops on a four-and-a-half year deal for a reported fee of £1.5m from Danish side, FC Midtjylland. Sviatchenko is claimed to have rejected moves to Italy, France and England to join the Hoops.
“I rejected it because I saw Celtic as a bigger club than some of the Premier League clubs,” he said.
“I walked around Celtic Park and I had goose bumps and talked to my former team mate Morten Rasmussen and he said, that even though he hadn’t the success he had hoped for at Celtic, that I will always remember Celtic for being a big club and I can feel that.”
