Striker Nadir Ciftci has joined Polish outfit Pogon Szczecin on loan for the rest of the season.

The 25-year-old scored four times in twenty-six appearances since arriving from Dundee United in July 2015, but has managed just four substitute displays this term due to the ongoing form of Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths.

“It’s good for him to get some games,” manager Brendan Rodgers told BBC Scotland. “It’s been difficult for him because of the form of the other strikers here, but you have to give him massive credit because he’s been totally professional and a great guy to have around the squad.

“I gave him some game time lately as a reward really for his hard work and endeavour,” he added. “But he’s a striker and they want to play and score goals. This is a chance for him to get some games between now and the end of the season.”
