Celtic are excited to announce that Scott Bakkor has re-joined the club from Witton Albion.

The 26-year-old spent a brief period with division rivals Witton Albion last season after departing Celtic following a 2-year spell.

The forward returns to Celtic looking to build on his 87 appearances for the club, having scored 14 goals and creating 15 assists during his first two seasons with us.

During the shortened 20/21 season, Scott scored an impressive five goals in 10 games for Witton.

Scott originally joined Celtic from Skelmersdale United, prior to this, he had featured for Warrington Town, Curzon Ashton, Colwyn Bay and Marine.

Scott scored his first Celtic goal on September 15 2018, scoring Celtic’s second goal in a 3-2 win over Bamber Bridge.

He was crowned Celtic’s Player of the Year in 2018/19 and in 2019/20, he finished joint top for the most assists, with eight goals created.

On making the move back to Celtic, Scott said: "The main reason for me wanting to come back and why I am happy to be back is because I loved being at the club last time I was here.

"I had a really good two years here and really enjoyed playing for Simon.

"I'm buzzing to be back and I can't wait to get started again, it's been a while.

"Having spoken to Simon, I think he missed me a bit! I'm using that as a reason for coming back as well, he didn't want to do another season without me! 

"We agreed on targets and what we both want for the new season, I feel like we're going to get a good squad together this year and do something good."

A full interview with Scott will follow. 

Welcome back, Scott!
