Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

The attacker is able to play through the middle as a striker, or on either wing (according to Transfermarkt), so his versatility could prove to be huge for the Bhoys – and it seems many supporters are buzzing ahead of his arrival at Parkhead.
