NADIR Ciftci will leave Celtic at the end of the season, the Scottish champions have announced.

The striker moved to Parkhead from Dundee United in July 2015 but failed to make an impression in Glasgow, scoring just four goals for the Bhoys.

Ciftci spent the second half of the 2017/18 campaign on loan at Motherwell after previous loan spells with Plymouth Argyle, Pogon Szczecin and Eskisehirspor.
