Official: Celtic Confirm Signing Of South Korea Defender Cha Du-Ri On Two-Year Contract

The Asian star will play his trade in the EPL...
Celtic have confirmed the free transfer signing of South Korea defender Cha Du-Ri on a two-year contract.

The 29-year-old has the option of extending that deal by a further year at Parkhead, if both parties are happy with his performances over the next two seasons.

Du-Ri becomes the Bhoys’ second signing in as many days after Charlie Mulgrew was snapped up from Aberdeen on Thursday.

The right-back spent last season playing for German club Freiburg, but was available on a free transfer after his contract expired.

He played three of South Korea’s four games in this summer’s World Cup in South Africa, missing only the 4-1 defeat to Argentina.

In total, he has accumulated 50 caps for his country since making his debut in 2001.
