Nakumara Signs

Last updated : 29 July 2005 By Kevin Smith
New Celtic signing Shunsuke Nakamura will not be eligible to make his SPL debut tomorrow at Fir Park. The Japanese midfielder is still waiting on a work permit, which will allow him to play for Celtic.

Nakamura passed a medical today and was welcomed with open arms to the club. He is thought to be Gordon Strachan's final signing of the pre-season.

Nakamura is also ruled out of Tuesday night's return leg against Artmedia Brataslava, and will be looking to make his debut against Dundee United next week.

Welcome, Shunsuke.
