Vasilis Barkas: Celtic sign Greece goalkeeper from AEK Athens

Vasilis Barkas helped AEK Athens knock Celtic out of the Champions League qualifiers in 2018

Goalkeeper Vasilis Barkas has joined Celtic from AEK Athens on a four-year contract.

Barkas has made more than 100 appearances for AEK since joining from Atromitos in 2016, winning the Greek top flight in 2018.

The 26-year-old has featured 10 times for Greece.

Neil Lennon had been pursuing a new keeper after Craig Gordon departed and Fraser Forster returned to Southampton following a loan spell.

Scotland cap Scott Bain has played for Lennon’s side during pre-season while fellow goalkeeper Ross Doohan is close to joining Ross County on loan.

Defending Scottish Premiership champions Celtic, who are going for a 10th successive title, open their league campaign on Sunday at home to Hamilton Academical.
