As Celtic close in on an exciting signing, a 3.75 million veteran quits his dressing room ...

Celtic are closing in on Alexandro Bernabei after the goalkeeper of Lanus said an emotional goodbye to his teammates in Argentina.

On Tuesday night, the Bhoys signed goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist, adding more competition for Joe Hart in the Celtic goal.

Celtic are on the verge of getting more signings but an left back is a priority for Ange Postecoglou.

Greg Taylor played well last season, but Boli Bolingoli is finishing at Celtic, and Liam Scales has been loaned out to Aberdeen.

With Celtic closing in on signing Lanus star Bernabei, the Scales contract might now indicate an incoming candidate.

Celtic are closing in on Alexandro Bernabei

Celtic have been linked with Bernabei for a couple of weeks now, and a contract is getting closer.

Celtic have made a breakthrough in negotiations with Lanus, according to Sky Sports, and have agreed to sign Bernabei for 3.75 million.

Bernabei, a South American football expert, has been hailed as an excellent player for Celtic.

The 21-year-old is a former winger who excels in speed and effective attacking play, while at a weak 5ft 7in tall.

Bernabei might be regarded as a very broad alternative to Taylor and Celtic.

A video of Bernabei saying a slewful goodbye to his Lanus teammates has emerged inside their dressing room.

It''s clear that Bernabei is on his way out of Lanus, and that Celtic is on course to be his destination.

Bernabei might have asked for a better appearance; the left back was sent off against Colon on Sunday after faking an opponent.

Celtic will not wish to see any of that at Parkhead, but will be looking for Bernabei to bring his competitive and aggressive streak within reason; that''s what made Scott Brown so popular after all.
