Player Profile - Ian Arnold (1st Jul 1993 - 20th Aug 1997)
Ian Arnold came to Celtic from Kettering Town and remains to this day Celtic's most expensive signing, costing the club £15,000. Large price tags have accompanied Ian around his career, which started at Middlesbrough, as a trainee. He made seven league appearances for the Premiership club before moving across country to Carlisle, attracting a five figure fee in the process. He made 47 league appearances for United scoring 11 goals before dropping into the conference with Kettering for another five figure fee. More goals and two England semi-pro caps (one against Holland in which he scored), before he came to us and scored goal after goal. Kidderminster needed a striker, and Ian moved on to them, Celtic earning back the fee paid for him (only Lee Trundle's £16,000 price tag has surpassed this). He managed 14 goals in 9 appearances for Kidderminster's first team over a two year period, before signing for Southport to get more first team games. Between 1999 and 2001, he made 80+ appearances and scored 26 goals. As Southport slipped into Conference North, Ian stayed in the conference with Morecambe, but quickly fell out of favour with the management and joined Barrow on a free transfer. 50 appearances and 14 goals came before work commitments forced him to leave one Cumbrian club and join another, Workington, where he is currently, still banging them in.

Ian's scored plenty of goals in his career, and many of them helped keep Celtic in the Conference.
