Rami Gershon joined Standard Liege in 2010 but has spent much of his time in Belgium on loan at Kortrijk

Israel international Gershon, who is capable of playing at centre back or left back, will move to Parkhead until the end of the season once he receives his work permit.

Should he impress during his time with the club, Celtic will have the option to sign the 24-year-old on a permanent deal in the summer.

A statement on the club’s official website read: “Celtic are delighted to announce that an agreement has been reached with Rami Gershon and Standard Liege for the player to join Celtic until the end of the season.

“Celtic also has an option to make a permanent transfer of the player at the end of this period. Rami will join Neil Lennon’s squad on their winter training camp in Spain, pending the completion of the appropriate work permit paperwork, which is currently being carried out.”

Celtic are also looking to tie up a deal for Central Coast Mariners midfielder Tom Rogic.
