Samaras pens three-year Celtic deal

Celtic striker Georgios Samaras has signed a new three-year deal with the club, following team-mate Mark Wilson, who also extended his contract on Thursday.

Samaras, 26, joined Celtic initially on loan from Manchester City in January 2008 and scored on his Hoops debut, coming on as a substitute in the Scottish Cup victory over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

Such was his impact, he signed on fully in the summer of that year and has now scored 42 goals in 136 appearances, including both goals against Rangers in the New Year meeting that kicked off a great run for the Hoops.

"It is a great signing," Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby said. "He is the type of player that we want to keep at the club.

"He has got something special, on the day, when he plays his best football he is sometimes unplayable.

"That is great because when you work at a club like Celtic you want to improve the team and it is important to keep players like him. Everyone in the coaching staff was happy to keep him.''
