Reported Celtic transfer target Mehdi Ghaedi shared a video Instagram in 2018 wearing Celtic kit!
The 22-year-old was first linked with Celtic last month alongside Mehdi Abdi and Armin Sohrabian by an Iranian news agency.
Back in 2018 Ghaedi, when he was playing for Iranian side Esteghlal, the striker shared a video showing him at the gym wearing a Day-Glo Celtic kit from the New Balance days. It is unlikely that there were many outlets in Iran selling the kit but somehow Ghaedi managed to get his hands on one and decided to share a video clip.
The striker now has 1.8m followers on Instagram which gives an indication of his popularity, by comparison Kyogo Furuhashi has 182,000 fans on Instagram.
There is virtually a daily diet of players being linked with Celtic, after signing Daizen Maeda and Johnny Kenny it looks like Celtic’s striking options has been bolstered with other areas of the side most likely to be strengthened.
Ghaedi is a curious link with one video clip from 2018 adding to the intrigue.
