Efe Ambrose’s Celtic have confirmed the signing of former England striker Carlton Cole on a two year contract.
The 32-year-old free agent, who has seven caps for his country, has been training with the Parkhead club for several weeks after leaving West Ham.
Celtic in a statement on its official website wrote;
“CELTIC are delighted to announce that striker Carlton Cole has signed for the club until the summer of 2017.” The statement read.
He has scored 85 goals in more than 380 senior club appearances, with spells at Chelsea, Wolves, Charlton, Aston Villa and the Hammers.
Cole will be presented to the media on Thursday lunchtime in Glasgow ahead of Celtic’s UEFA Europa League game against Norwegian club Molde who on Wednesday reappointed former Manchester United’s legend Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
Solskjaer insists he will take a back seat for the Celtic game and allow caretaker coach Erling Moe to carry out his gameplan but his fellow Norwegian Ronny Deila, speaking before training at the Aker Stadion – which reverts to its former name Molde Stadion for European nights due to issues with sponsorship –believes the transition will be seamless anyway.
