Celtic kiss goodbye to £2.2m flop investment on Bangura
Sierra Leone striker Mohamed Bangura (in photo) was released by Celtic for free on Friday. He left Glasgow after 16 scoreless appearances for the Hoops over three years.
Despite 18 months left on his contract, Sierra Express Media Sport UK understands that the 24year-old verbally agreed to terminate his contract and Celtic was happy to kiss goodbye to the £2.2 flop million investment that never repaid a penny.
Bangura who becomes the first Sierra Leonean to play for Celtic was recommended by fan favorite Henrik Larsson.
Earlier in January it was reported that Celtic Manager Neil Lennon was happy with Bangura returning to the club. However the Sierra Leone international who trained at Lennoxtown for the first time following the end of his year-long loan period in Sweden with Elfsborg, found life difficult after he tried to resurrect his Celtic career.
Bangura endured an injury-hit start to his Celtic career and spent lengthy spells back on loan in Sweden with AIK and then Elfsborg.
The 24-year-old defied his employers by starting both legs of the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round in July for Elfsborg.
