Celtic have completed the signing of Marco Tilio.

The attacker has joined the Scottish champions from Melbourne City.

The 21-year-old has penned a five-year deal, as he swaps the A-League for the Scottish Premiership.

On his move, Tilio told Celtic TV: “I’m ecstatic that I’m coming over to Europe, coming to such a big club and team, and I’m super-excited.

“I hope to bring all my qualities, take on players in and around the box, help the team contribute to goals with assists and hopefully put a few in the back of the net as well.

“It’s an amazing opportunity for myself and having seen Aussies go over there and do well at such a prestigious club, it’s a massive opportunity for myself that I couldn’t deny.

“And being around those guys, Aaron Mooy and Tommy Rogic, in the national team camp over recent years, obviously helped make my decision easier.”

And revealing his discussions with Brendan Rodgers, he added: “I did have a chat with him a few days ago and I was really excited to have the opportunity to speak to him, and the plan the club has for me and for the team is a great opportunity as I said I couldn’t deny, and I’m really looking forward to getting over there to Scotland.

“I’m just finalising a few things and I’m trying to pack up everything here in Australia, and as soon as I can, I’ll head over to Scotland, meet all the team, the whole club.

‘I’m really excited about that and hopefully I can get over there as soon as possible and get right into the thick of things.’

“I think it’s amazing, obviously the pre-season is so long, it drags on, and in Europe it’s a lot shorter than what it is here, so I’m looking forward to getting right into it and playing games, and I think that’s exciting as well that you get over and start to gel with the team as much as possible before the competitions and season starts.”

Tilio - who will wear the number 23 - becomes the second signing after Rodgers' return to Celtic after Odin Thiago Holm agreed a switch from Valerenga.
