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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
