The 24-year-old striker from Sporting Gijon had agreed a four-year deal with the Scottish champions following talks last week.

He also passed his Celtic medical on Friday but late on Sunday changed his mind and seemed intent on remaining in Spain at Getafe.

However, this move did not materialise, opening the door for the second time on his switch to Glasgow.

It has been reported that the Getafe deal floundered on financial terms.

Scepovic has been capped eight times by his country and will remain at Parkhead until the summer of 2018.

He becomes the club’s sixth summer signing, joining Craig Gordon, Jo Inge Berget, Aleksandar Tonev, Jason Denayer and Mubarak Wakaso in Glasgow.

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
