Celtic striker Tony Watt has joined Standard Liege for an undisclosed fee.

“It wasn’t an easy decision to leave the club I support” – Tony Watt

The 20-year-old agreed a five-year contract with the Belgians after they initially expressed an interest in January.

“It wasn’t an easy decision to leave the club I support and I honestly can’t explain the feeling I got every time I wore the hoops,” Watt admitted to BBC Scotland. “I’m delighted to sign a five year contract with Standard Liege.

“I want to thank everyone at Celtic for making my dreams come true and giving me an unforgettable three-and-a-half years.”

Watt, a Scotland Under-21 international, originally moved to Celtic from Airdrie United in January 2011 and famously scored in their Champions League victory over Barcelona the following year.
