    Reo is a player I watched develop in Japan. His old team Kawasaki Frontale have been the outstanding team in the J-League for the last five years with some ridiculous talent in their ranks and Reo is one of them.

    “He’s had a lot of success playing for a club that wants to win every week, which sounds similar to this club. He has the right character and I think he will develop over time.”

    He may have just arrived in Glasgow after signing a four-and-a-half year contract from J-League side Kawasaki Frontale, but new signing Reo Hatate is raring to get started and experience life at Celtic Park.

    At just 24-years-old, Reo touched down as a Celtic player after being named in the Japanese league’s Best XI for the 2021 season and is fresh from winning back-to-back league titles with Kawasaki.

    The midfielder knows all about Ange Postecoglou from the manager’s time in Japan and he’s excited about working under the Australian, as well as getting the chance to play alongside the rest of Celtic’s Japanese contingent, Daizen Maede, Yosuke Ideguchi and Kyogo Furuhashi.

    The new Celt said: “I am extremely honoured to finally be able to wear this historical uniform.

    'I’ve only been able to see Celtic Park on videos and pictures, so I’m really excited to finally be able to experience this great stadium and I’m extremely looking forward to meeting the fans and playing in front of them.'

    “As a Japanese, it’s really exciting to see a manager who has experience in Japan and in the international stage.

    “In Japan, I have always played against his teams but I’ve always observed and thought his way of playing is very strategical and attacking, so it’s extremely fun for the audience.”

    Having played in a number of positions for Kawasaki Frontale, Reo believes his versatility has helped his development, but he can’t wait to show the Celtic supporters exactly what he can offer.

    “Being able to play in different positions has given me confidence as a footballer,” he said. “With this team, I want to be able to bring out the best in my style of play and contribute to the attacking side of things a bit more.

    'I hope to be the best version of myself so I can contribute towards Celtic and I want the fans to see how I play and to know my style as soon as possible.'

    "I will do my best in training and in the games and I’m really looking forward to it.”

    I don't get these translation, they are completely off.

    My Mrs, who is fluent in Japanese, told me that he was saying something about his grandfather being a kamikaze pilot and that what he plans to do at the game at Ibrox will make Pearl Harbour and his grandfather's mission in it seem like kindergarten.

    I'm most excited about him out of the new trio, and that's saying something.
